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. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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. Â I guess we’ll have to wait and see how things unfold.
