It's a terrible loss to discover that Joaquin Phoenix has quit acting to pursue a career in music. I know that Joaquin Phoenix wouldn't be the first actor to say he's quitting acting only to resurface in another movie, all thanks to the almighty dollar, but hey, he at least plans to quit.
It's unfortunate because Joaquin Phoenix is a fantastic actor and I would prefer to see him in a movie that I would to see him on stage, but hey, I may be alone on that front.
Nevertheless, take it in while you can because you won't be seeing Joaquin Phoenix starring in gems like Walk the Line or Gladiator anymore.
Is he drunk? You decide.
