  • Joaquin Phoenix Announces Retirement

    http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/joaq...enix_blog.html

    I am deeply saddened by this. He's one of my top 5 favorite actors and he deserved the supporting Oscar for Gladiator. Not to mention he's just superb in everything even if the movie he's in isn't.

    Dang.

    Thanks for one of the coolest villianous performances ever in Commodus! "AM I NOT MERCIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    and thanks for basically being spot on and honoring basically the greatest country/rock legend in history as Cash. "Hello..... I'm Johnny Cash...."

    Dude was an all out, flat down amazing actor. I don't think he ever really got the full credit he deserved in anything he did. And you are right on- he did carry the movie even if it was crappy. Here's to hoping he does like any good young star does and get's the itch to come back in a few years to do another~

      Wow. This is weird. He's a great actor, I'll miss seeing him in movies. He was a good musician in Walk the Line, I hope his music career works out for him

        Another actor to pursue a music career?

        Good luck Pheonix.... Sadly, many actor musicians fail.

                    more often it's the other way around. singers wanting to be actors.

                    my opinion, they oughta stick with music. i don't think lopez has made one good movie... ever.

                      Elvis made several classic movies. Isn't it about time for a remake of Clambake?

                      Well, perhaps "classic" is a bit of a stretch.......

                        i think then it was a whole different ball-game. a star was a star whether he was a music star or a movie star. and back then most of them actually had talent

                        cash had his share of silver screen appearances as well.

                            AHHH the memories.

                            Looking forward to hearing Joaquin's music, hope he does well.
                            Will miss his acting.
