What a week Joaquin Phoenix’s forehead is having. First, it gets recognized for looking like a vajayjay and today it actually morphs into a delightful Hobbit-like creature when looked at from a different angle. I guess it’s all just a matter of perspective. I’ll never look at Joaquin or a vagina the same way again.

Sure, Scarlett Johansson is fine, but, in an effort to upend gender roles (upending gender roles is our favorite thing to do at Screen Junkies), we thought about how a male voice for the operating system in Her would sound.

While the voice may lack Siri’s soothing, assuring presence, it more than makes up for it with brash drama and shrillness. It may not be to all tastes, but if you’re not tolerant of it, that makes you a monster. There. That’s out there now.

You have to like Him. Merry holidays, or whatever.

My wife gets mad at me because I’m always paying more attention to my phone than I am to her. But at least I’m not as bad as this guy.

In Spike Jonze‘s ‘Her’, Joaquin Phoenix plays a man whose creeper stache prevents him from finding love. In the reality of this film, the iPhone’s Siri is actually useful and is way better at flirting. And so, Phoenix finds himself falling for the disembodied voice of Scarlett Johansson as so many fans of the actress’s “Anywhere I Lay My Head” album and scrambled HBO viewings of Match Point already have.

Seth MacFarlane reiterated that he will not be hosting the Oscars this year, with the official excuse being scheduling problems, but the actual excuse more likely lying in the realm of “Hosting the Oscars sucks. Leave me alone.”

However, it’s not like Seth is going to step down without suggesting a replacement to returning producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. His suggestion? Joaquin Phoenix.

Although Joaquin Phoenix would be a very bizarre choice out of context, in light of the past two years of hosts, the beardy weirdo would seem like the logical move. Instead of speeches and comedy bits, Phoenix could stare at the crowd and intermittently sip from the water bottle.

Can’t no one get offended by that!

The post Joaquin Phoenix Returns To Pissing People Off appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The Master isn’t burning up the box office but it is garnering a lot of praise for Joaquin Phoenix, with many talking Oscar. However, Phoenix isn’t having that talk. In his usual firebrand fashion, he’s stated that the Academy Awaqrds are “total utter bullshit.” Well said!

Phoenix, who has avoided any press tour or politicking for The Master, now tells Interview magazine.

“Have you ever smoked a dog’s skeleton? Exhilarating.”

Oops. That’s actually not from Interview. That’s his outgoing voicemail. Here’s the actual quote.

“I’m just saying that I think it’s bullshit. I think it’s total, utter bullshit, and I don’t want to be a part of it. I don’t believe in it. It’s a carrot, but it’s the worst-tasting carrot I’ve ever tasted in my whole life. I don’t want this carrot. It’s totally subjective. Pitting people against each other…It’s the stupidest thing in the whole world,” he says. “It was one of the most uncomfortable periods of my life when Walk the Line was going through all the awards stuff and all that. I never want to have that experience again. I don’t know how to explain it—and it’s not like I’m in this place where I think I’m just above it—but I just don’t ever want to get comfortable with that part of things.”

Fair enough. Phoenix has been around long enough to play by his own rules and with two nominations under his belt, he has a suitable amount of perspective to inform his decision. Plus, once you have a guy poop on you, awards and superlatives really lose their luster. It changes a man.

The final piece is in place. Natasha Lyonne is officially returning for American Reunion. She’ll join other original castmates Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Seann William Scott, Mena Suvari, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Jennifer Coolidge and Eugene Levy for the 2012 release. After a rough couple of years in Hollywood, Lyonne has agreed to do the role in return for any leftover pie. (Deadline)

Leatherface has more beautiful victims. Tania Raymonde and Clint Eastwood’s youngest son Scott have signed on to bake under the Texas sun while fleeing a chainsaw-wielding maniac in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. Eastwood’s deal has him returning for two additional sequels. Raymonde’s deal has her looking hot until she gets cut in half. (Deadline and Deadline)

I guess Joaquin Phoenix is all better now. He’s booked to star in Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman‘s untitled project. Plot details haven’t been revealed yet but it’s suspected the film is “a satire about how world leaders gather to figure out all the seismic events that will take place in the world, from oil prices to wars that will be waged.” Just like in real life. THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE!!! (Twitch)

For the past few weeks, you’ve been reading various entertainment news outlets clumsily referring to director Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology movie as”Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology movie,” “Paul Thomas Anderson’s formerly titled The Master project,” “Paul Thomas Anderson’s strike for Xenu’s forces,” etc. Well, friends, that dark period of our nation’s history is finally over, as the movie is now back to officially being titled The Master.

Now that that’s out of the way, I can report that The Master (ah, that feels good) has added two new actors to its cast: Josh Close and Fiona Dourif. Josh Close is said to be playing one of lead Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character’s disciples. Fiona Dourif (daughter of actor Brad Dourif), is playing an undisclosed part. They’re both also joining Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix in the movie.

The good news here is that when Close and Dourif call up their parents to tell them the good news, they can just say they’re in The Master, not “the Scientology movie” or whatever. Just The Master. (Variety)

You might remember reading about Paul Thomas Anderson’s untitled Scientology movie (formerly called The Master) casting a lot of people recently, including Amy Adams, Lena Endre, Laura Dern, and Rami Malek. Now, yet another actor with a dangerously high Thetan count has been added to the cast: From The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Madisen Beaty.

7 photosAmy Adams


Beaty was previously rumored to be attached to the project, but the character she’ll be playing is still unclear. The movie also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, here’s a brief plot synopsis, which you can trust because it wasn’t written by a pill-addled science fiction writer:

“Hoffman stars as a man who returns after witnessing the horrors of WWII and tries to rediscover who he is in post-war America. He creates a belief system, something that catches on with other lost souls.”

Man, I should start a belief system. Lot of money in that. (The Film Stage)

The potentially-Scientology bashing movie from Paul Thomas Anderson sounds very intriguing. So far, the cast of the movie formerly known as The Master includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Laura Dern and Amy Adams. Now, another actor has been indoctrinated and thetan-scanned.

Rami Malek (HBO’s”The Pacific“) has signed on to play Hoffman’s son-in-law in the film. Hoffman is the “prophet” behind the kooky cult. This gig comes to Malek after getting thoroughly Twilighted in Breaking Dawn, which just recently wrapped shooting. Filming begins on the untitled religious drama this month.

Megan Ellison‘s Annapurna Pictures is financing and The Weinstein Company will distribute. (Variety)

We Own The Night‘s James Gray is reteaming with his homie forever, Joaquin Phoenix, for his next film, Low Life. The Dark Knight Rises star Marion Cotillard has also signed on and expectations are that Jeremy Renner will join as well.

The story follows Cotillard as a woman attempting to immigrate to America from Poland. While in transit, her sister falls ill and she is forced to trade sex for medicine. Damaged from the experience, she’s preyed upon by Phoenix’s charming sleazebag character once she arrives in America.  He turns her out and probably charges extra for pooping on the chest. If Renner does sign on, he’ll play the charming magician who sweeps her off her feet and offers her a way out of her bleak existence. It’s also likely that he’ll be able to have his chest pooped on for free. Because that’s love, you guys. (Deadline)

The post Joaquin Phoenix Aligns Self With P.T. Anderson And Xenu appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology movie (previously titled The Master, now untitled) will probably court a fair amount of controversy. And who better than Joaquin Phoenix to be at the forefront of that controversy, since he himself has never shamelessly provoked controversy in order to attract attention to himself.

Phoenix is joining Philip Seymour Hoffman in the titular role, and the movie, which is still being funded by Megan Ellison, starts shooting in June. By the way, Anderson has made some pretty drastic changed to the script (including the aforementioned title change) – here’s a new plot synopsis:

“Hoffman stars as a man who returns after witnessing the horrors of WWII and tries to rediscover who he is in post-war America. He creates a belief system, something that catches on with other lost souls.”

So it looks like the Scientology influence is still there, but maybe it’s been downplayed slightly? I guess we’ll have to wait and see to find out. Hail Xenu! (Deadline)

Maybe his recent behavior was him just prepping.

The post Joaquin Phoenix Might Undo The Past Two Years With Anderson’s Scientology Film appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Since Megan Ellison gav Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology film a new lease on life, there hasn’t been much movement, until now. Variety reports that Joaquin Phoenix is currently in talks to play the alcoholic apprentice, then consigliere, then doubter of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, the leader of a cult-like thing that pretty much exactly represents Scientology.

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.

The post ‘Akira’ Casting Shortlist: Pattinson, Garfield, No One Asian appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Akira is considered one on the most important works in all of mangadom and animeland. It’s a Japanese classic, which is why it must be written by the Harry Potter screenwriter and star a franchise-carrying white dude. “Must… scrub… all… Japanese… aspects… away…,” said a hard-at-work Warner Bros. They missed a spot, though – all the characters still have names like Tetsuo and Kaneda. Why not Tony and Kyle? Now those are first names I can relate to.

Andrew Garfield, James McAvoy and Robert Pattinson have been given the current draft of Akira, re-written by Steve Kloves. They’re all up for the lead role of Tetsuo. If the audition requires shirtlessness, Pattinson’s got the experience edge. Meanwhile, for the role of Kaneda, Chris Pine, Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund, Michael Fassbender and Joaquin Phoenix are under consideration.

The story takes place in the very distant future – 2019 – where a bike gang leader must save his buddy from becoming the victim of a medical experiment. Warner Bros. and director Albert Hughes (From Hell) are excited about the new draft, though probably Albert’s co-director brother Allen is not, since he’s been left out of the picture. Or maybe he too became the victim of a medical experiment somewhere in Neo-Tokyo. (Deadline)

We know that Joaquin Phoenix loves beards, so it makes sense that he’s attracted to a project about a man with a legendary beard: motherfreakin’ Abraham Lincoln. Besides having grown a cool beard, I’m a little confused about the rest of Lincoln‘s biography. My history teachers said he was one of the greatest American Presidents, others say he was an expert vampire hunter.

The actor-turned-rapper-turned-actor-once-again is the lead choice to play Honest Abe’s mentor in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s goofvel (a novel that’s just a big ol’ goof). His first bit of advice for the President? Quit being President to start a career as a vampire hunter, then tell everyone it was just a weird joke.

Lincoln is set to be played by actor-elect Benjamin Walker and Tim Burton will produce. (Deadline)

James Franco is going to need at intervention for his addiction to workohol. The graduate student currently has a full slate between writing books, films, and starring in Rise Of The Apes, Your Highness, The Iceman, The Night Stalker, some Linda Lovelace thing, a “Freaks and Geeks” reunion, and something with his brother. Now he says that he’s going to direct As I Lay Dying after all.

Believe it or not, he’s not playing every role in the film. He’s reached out to Richard Jenkins, Michael Shannon, Joaquin Phoenix, and Paul Dano to fill out the potential cast. I say potential because if someone shows his Eddie Murphy’s work in the Nutty Professor films between now and then, plans will probably change.

At this rate, the poor thing is going to suffer dehydration before he gets the chance to present himself the Oscar for Best Actor at the ceremony that he is also hosting. Somebody please make sure this guy gets a CapriSun. (MTV)

Government bureaucracy isn’t normally depicted as the sexiest of career paths, but Charlize Theron might soon change that. She’s been offered the role of Helen Gandy, eccentric FBI man J. Edgar Hoover’s personal assistant, in Clint Eastwood’s greatly anticipated Hoover biopic, with Leo DiCaprio already cast as J. Edgar himself. Also in talks to join the cast is Armie Hammer, the guy who played those rich, blond twins a.k.a. The Winklevi in The Social Network. He would portray Clyde Tolson, Hoover’s right-hand-man and rumored lover. Eastwood previously offered the part of Tolson to professional crazy person Joaquin Phoenix, who reportedly turned it down after learning that the role would require him to do more than just stare at things intensely.

He just wants to watch he and Leonardo DiCaprio make out a bit. Maybe some ass-play. And he's going to film it. But don't worry, it's totally on the up and up. Eastwood wants Phoenix to play Clyde Tolson, the rumored lover of J. Edgar Hoover in the Hoover biopic that he is setting up. Neither DiCaprio nor Phoenix have agreed to appear in the film yet (or the ass-play), but how could they turn this down? They sounds like a complex roles in a really interesting film. One that I plan on watching (when my girlfriend is out of town). (Vulture)

Insert penises here.

Now that’s he’s officially not actually crazy or a rapper, Clint Eastwood has been squintily-eyeing Joaquin Phoenix as his boy-toy. It’s not what you think, you guys. He just wants to watch he and Leonardo DiCaprio make out a bit. Maybe some ass-play. And he’s going to film it. But don’t worry, it’s totally on the up and up.

Casey Affleck: Joaquin Phoenix Documentary Was Fake (Well Duh) http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casey-affleck-joaquin-phoenix-documentary-was-fake-well-duh/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casey-affleck-joaquin-phoenix-documentary-was-fake-well-duh/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Breaking News: Casey Affleck has admitted that his Joaquin Phoenix documentary, I'm Still Here, is fake. Affleck followed that bombshell by admitting that he and Ben Affleck are brothers, and that he really likes Boston. He then went on to give the dumbest quote in the history of man (or in at least the past two days): “I never intended to trick anybody…The idea of a quote, hoax, unquote, never entered my mind.” Really, that's weird. Usually when I'm lying out my teeth while taking part in an elaborate hoax, it crosses my mind. Then again, I'm not the type of person who says "quote/unquote" out loud, so maybe I can't relate because I'm not a pretentious #sshole. Although I find that hard to believe, considering my love of A Prairie Home Companion...the radio show, of course, not the movie. (NYT via /Film)

Joaquin Phoenix Unretires For ‘Big Shoe’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/joaquin-phoenix-unretires-for-big-shoe/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/joaquin-phoenix-unretires-for-big-shoe/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Smells like Oscar. Now that his totally not-staged downward spiral documentary I'm Still Here is playing before audiences, Joaquin Phoenix is ready to get back in the game. He's set to star in Big Shoe, a movie that focuses on a shoe fetishist who is also a talented footwear designer. Which could or could not be gross. On the one hand, it's healthy to be invested in what you do for a living. On the other, I'm proud of that Photoshop I did up above, but I didn't choke-fap while creating it. I save that kind of bahavior for the Girl Gallery. (THR)

Directed by Casey Affleck, we're given a front row seat to Phoenix's imaginary breakdown. Absolutely riveting (in an imaginary way). The trailer has a pretty cool voice-over. Is that Edward James Olmos? I think it is. If so, somebody get that guy a job selling Ford trucks immediately. Check it out after the jump...
