Don't Ask About the Beard

Hopefully you've heard or seen this already. Due to Joaquin Phoenix's possible delve into rap music, he's become a cultural figure to pay attention to. Play Johnny Cash in a movie? Who cares. Be a prick on David Letterman? YouTube sensation!

Might not be up for too terribly long, so catch this video while it lasts. There are suspicions that this could possibly be a genius real life Borat setup with Phoenix playing an off-the-deep-end hoax on America, which I could definitely see. Either way, this interview is frickin' hilariously awkward and tense. He even drops a discretely annoyed F-bomb at Paul Schaefer. Paul Schaefer! What has he ever done to anyone?

Phoenix has been on Late Night before, sans beard & shades, and conducted a mostly normal interview, so I'm leaning towards the hoax theory, but whatever. Classic overnight material.

... this was whatcha all been waitin' for ain't it?
