David Letterman definitely knew something was off. But despite what his writer previously reported, he did not know what Joaquin Phoenix was up to last year.

That’s why I’m Still Here actor – who reunited with Letterman Wednesday for the first time since February 2009 – felt it necessary to make amends for his little stunt.

“I think that you’ve interviewed many, many people and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person, so…  But I apologize. I didn’t.. I hope I didn’t offend you in any way,” the two-time Oscar nominee said.

“Oh, no – oh, no, no, no, I was not offended,” Letterman replied. “I’m telling you, it was so much fun. It was batting practice, you know what I mean? Every one of them was a dinger.”

“Well, we’d hoped to come on a talk show and I was looking for a beat down, and I got one ... I want to thank you for that,” Phoenix laughed.

Late Show Writer: Letterman Participated in Joaquin Phoenix Hoax

Joaquin Phoenix on David Letterman

A lot can change in a person’s life in just 19 months—as David Letterman (and his wife) would know. But how has the past year and a half treated Joaquin Phoenix?

Well, we may get an answer to that question when the Oscar nominee returns to the Late Show next week. That’s when Phoenix—who made a memorably awkward appearance on that program in Feb. 2009—is scheduled to promote his film I’m Still Here.

If Joaquin still isn’t the mood to speak, maybe Dave could at least get Phoenix to do a rap? You better set your TiVos for September 22 just in case.

Joaquin Phoenix Not All There for Letterman

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Late Night, Reality, Talk Shows, CBS, Video,


Actor-turned-rapper-turned-media-joke appeared on David Letterman’s late show last night, ostensibly to tout his new (and supposedly last) film Two Lovers. But if Letterman expected an actor who wanted to promote a film, he was in for a bit of a surprise.

True to form, the late night King handled himself with considerable aplomb as Phoenix remained uncommunicative and mumbled into his sizable (and unkempt) beard. “You look different than I remember you,” quipped early, eliciting hardly a spark of response from the actor.
