So what's up with Joaquin Phoenix ?

Cast your mind back to 2000 and the Ridley-Scott Roman epic - Gladiator. Yes Russell Crowe was great, but Joaquin Phoenix as the crazed megalomaniac Commodus was simply awesome. The performance won him an oscar nomination and propelled him into Hollywood royalty. Notable performances in Hotel Rwanda and Walk the Line amongst others followed and he had the film world at his feet.

Fast forward to 2009 and it's all gone bizarre, Phoenix now spouts a huge grizzly beard and has seemly given up his acting career while re-inventing himself as a rapper.

It seems the new job hasn't started off too well. A recent set at a Las Vegas club seems to have left a lot to be desired as Phoenix reportedly quit mid-set. We think this is a story to follow...
