Joaquin Phoenix Might Undo The Past Two Years With Anderson's Scientology Film
Since the project is hush-hush at the moment, it' unknown whether or not this is a lead role, but I'm comfortable assuming it is until I hear otherwise.
I hope these talks pan out, as Phoenix is a gifted actor who has eaten a lot of shit (rightfully so) for the cinematic abortion that was I'm Still Here. This seems to be the perfect vehicle for a turnaround, as P.T. Anderson films have a way of enveloping actors to the exclusion of their off-screen personas (think Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights). Lord knows the past two years have shown us that Phoenix can play drunk.
