Not Him Too!!!!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJoaquin Phoenix

joaquin__opt1.jpg

Oscar nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix is coming out with an album.

Yes…it's another actor morphing into a 'musician'.

Why??????

It didn't work for Scarlett Johansson. It didn't work for Minnie Driver or Kevin Bacon or Billy Bob Thornton or Gina Gershon or….the list goes on and on.

Why must you do this to us Joaquin?????

Apparently, Phoenix got the calling after he learned to play the guitar for the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line.

Does that mean we can expect to see something from Reese Witherspoon soon?

Phoenix has been working with Britpop star Tim Burgess , the Charlatans frontman.

A release date has not been determined.

For Phoenix's sake, let's hope the album is as good as his acting. But it will probably suck!

    Didn't you see him in the Johnny Cash film? He used his own vocals to emulate Johnny Cash, and I thought he did a superb job. He has a great voice, so I'm pretty excited to hear that he is going to be releasing an album.

    He's been playing music longer than he's been acting. His whole family are musicians and performed as children.

    honestly..i don't think he'll make it.
    o_0
    if a muscian morphed into an actor that's a different story.

    i predict it will be terrible…..but i live in Australia so hopefully it wont even make it down here!

  21. JC says – reply to this

    have you even herd the walk the line soundtrack???
    Phoenix is really good.
    and thats my fave movie by farr.
    RIP CASH.

    i dont think that his album will be best-selling, but he has a voice.

  23. Reina says – reply to this


    23

    I thought Minnie Driver has many records and had good reviews. I think she is good. Just because they are actors it doesn't mean they can't sing or won't be successful.

    Joaquin Phoenix can play guitar with my body anytime he wants!

    The Zooey Daschanel/M. Ward cd is an exception to the movie stars should stick to acting rule! check out their cd She & Him vol. 1, it is an amazing disc, and Zooey is a kick ass actress! I love her in 'All The Real Girls'…

  26. Sara says – reply to this

    actually The Bacon Brothers have been a very good band since 1995. Kevin Bacon didn't try to be a musicial he is one and a good one at that. Maybe we should check our facts next time.

    I love Joaquin Phoenix if I have faith in any actor's musical ability it's his.
    Walk the Line is one of my favourite movies of all time.

  28. AMO says – reply to this


    28

    Atleast we know he can actually sing; unlike the others you mentioned. He did his own singing in Walk the Line. He has a great voice; I think he can be a successful singer and he's hot.

  29. Tiffany says – reply to this


    29

    Well, it just goes to prove there is no such thing as someone who doesn't sell out in Hollywood.

  30. Kelly says – reply to this


    30

    yes. he sang in 'walk the line' and was great. i'm intrigued.

  31. kdm0503 says – reply to this


    31

    he actually won a Grammy for his work on the Walk the Line Soundtrack

  32. Just says – reply to this


    32

    Uhm. He did all his own singing in the movie. Clearly he can sing.

  33. linnylou92 says – reply to this


    33

    I loooveee his voice, I can't wait to hear his music!

  34. auds says – reply to this


    34

    PEREZ READ UP ON YOUR FACTS! Joaquin has been into music since he was a teen, his whole family does musical stuff. He and River used to be in a band together in the late 80's-early 90's!!! If that isn't enough proof he did all his own versions of Johnny Cash songs in Walk The Line. I'm sure his music will sell just fine!!

    Re: cp – Go Gainesville! His sister, Rain, is in a band as well - the papercranes.

  36. LaToya says – reply to this


    36

    Actually, he has a really nice voice! And he won a Grammy for the "Walk the Line" soundtrack. He's so damn hot, I would buy it anyways. That's right, he is that hot.

  37. Matilda says – reply to this


    37

    He's way ahead of those "actors turned singers" that you listed above - He is already a Grammy winner and had a #1 selling album. Plus he's got a great voice.

  38. You got to be kidding me? says – reply to this


    38

    Ok i do not get it! ACTORS STAY WHERE YOU ARE! god why does every one need to fuckin sing! MOST ACTORS SING LIKE FUCKIN CRAP! please perez don't make an ablum! its haunting actors

    41

    so what? If you don't like it, then don't buy it…
    what do you mean "doing this to us"?, noone forces you to buy someone's CD, idiot!

  42. Amanda says – reply to this


    42

    His late brother, River, was a musician, so this makes sense. Actually, it would be great if he hooked up with John Frusciante same as River did. If Walk the Line is any inclination, I don't expect Joaquin to suck, given he takes it in the right direction and doesn't do something so out there that no one can handle.

  43. Fo Realz says – reply to this


    43

    It could be worse! I saw the "Not him too!!" headline and Joaquin's picture and thought you meant that he was becoming a scientology freak! I am relieved that it is just another bad album.

  44. Anon says – reply to this


    44

    At least Joaquin actually sang in the movie and has a soundtrack CD out of it!
    Also, he has been actively involved with music for years. Joaquin has even directed music videos.

  45. Jeanna says – reply to this


    45

    dear Joaquin,

    I'm sorry you didn't win the Oscar for Walk the Line. It is time to let it go and move on.

    Sincerely, EVERYONE!

    MARI'OMO-PEREZ, YOU FLAP OFF THROUGH YOUR BUCK TEETH THAT ANYONE WHO DOESN'T LIKE THE SHIT THAT OOZES FROM YOUR SITE, THEN THEY DON'T HAVE TO LOOK AT. WELL, IF YOU DON'T LIKE JOAQUIN PHOENIX RECORDING AN ALBUM….THEN DON'T FUCKING LISTEN TO IT YOU STUPID HYPOCRITE. CHOKE ON YOUR OWN WORDS….LITERALLY.

    I think that dude has the talent to do whatever he wants… the album will be great.

    And I want to see Joaquin in a neon ball hugger swimsuit

    53

    Billy Bob Thornton was a musician long before he was an actor. He's on like his 4th album. His new video is great - just saw it last weekend on CMT. I saw him last year in LA and - I gotta say - it was really good. Don't make assumptions that just because someone is an actor, they can't be a good musician. Look at Broadway actors, they sing and act - that's what they're suppose to do. So why would a film actor be any different??

  54. MY EARS ARE BLEEDING!! says – reply to this


    54

    HOPEFULLY HIS SINGING ISNT AS BAD AS MARIAH CUNTNEYS ACTING!!!!

  55. I'll buy it says – reply to this


    55

    He was fantastic in Walk the Line, can't wait to hear other stuff he can do.

  56. UwrongPerez says – reply to this


    56

    If I am not mistaken Joaquin was in a band with his brother and maybe some of his sisters…I know I saw them play in Gainesville Fl…maybe in the late 80's or very early 90's…anyway he was still just a kid…I remember seeing him roam around by the Hippodrome…
    I think he has sisters in bands…I think the family is into music…so Perez…he is not just one of the celebs deciding to do music…I think this is something he has always had an interest in…Rock on Joaquin! I am sure Perez will be hyping you soon enough…XOXOX to you P

    havent you heard his covers of johhny cash?

    The difference between Joaquin and those "musicians" is that he actually has musical talent.

  59. Anne says – reply to this

    But Joaquin CAN sing! Remember of his role as Johnny Cash in Walk The Line?
    The guy is an exception! His voice is amazing!

    if you were at all informed on the independent music blogosphere or scarjo's new album efforts you would realize it's just as wildy successful as zooey deschanel's has been with m. ward. their respective myspaces have blown the fuck up (scarjo has 14000 listens TODAY ALONE) and they are getting major coverage from all the big music blogs, even the corporate ones. scarjo fucking did a song with david bowie and tom waits publicly declared his admiration and support for scarjo. why don't you stop profiling bullshit european bands covering madonna or whatever it is you like to endorse nowadays (altho lykke li is super hot, way to be three months late on shit as usualy buddy) and try to actually listen to shit before you condemn it on this stupid-ass site i can't help but check occassionally…..

    You can't put Kevin Bacon in that category, he is in his band with his brother who has won a GRAMMY! He was a Musician first and has four albums out - I have them all, and they are fantastic, not stupid bubblegum pop, seriously great music!

    The Phoenix family- all of them- grew up surrounded by music. On that hippie commune, remember? I read somewhere they each played an instrument. If J had to learn to play guitar, then he must have chosen a different instrument to play when he was younger. 1 of the sisters, Rain or Summer, is in a band. River played guitar while he was alive… RIP. Both parents are musically talented as well.

  95. megs says – reply to this


    95

    Umm…perez you dumbass….don't you know that he sang in most of the movie and it wasn't Cash that was singing!!! Both actors had to do their own singing in the movie, not just play instruments!!! For once, get your facts straight….

  96. maria says – reply to this


    96

    perez, who really gives a crap if they want to make an album. its their life and if they want to sing they can. you give the celebrities crap when they come oout with their own clothing line, and then you go ahead and do it too! i wouldnt be surprised if you made your own album and claimed you always thought about "pursuing your career in music". honestly, give it a rest already.
