Joaquin Phoenix’s situation gets weirder by the minute

As if things weren’t strange enough with this business of Joaquin Phoenix allegedly giving up acting to become a rap star, there’s now an impostor running around the Toronto Film Festival, posing as Phoenix and sneaking his way onto the red carpet.  The identity of the impostor is not known, but given Phoenix’s recent grooming choices, pretty much any homeless guy probably could have pulled it off.

Personally, I think the whole thing is a little suspicious.  There’s already a lot of mystery regarding the documentary that Phoenix is showing at the festival, which details his efforts to move into the world of hip-hop performance.  Some say the whole thing is a fake, and if it’s just a publicity stunt, then an staged impostor drama would fit right in with that.  I guess we’ll have to wait and see how things unfold.
