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!

    Don't be so negative! His versions of Johnny Cash songs were far better than the originals! He has this beautiful, deep voice he can do wonders with!

    He did his own singing for Walk the Line and it was really good. I prefered him to the original Johnny Cash.

    Actually Joaquin's whole family started out in music. River Phoenix (his brother) and his sisters all are/were very talented!

    Re: Erin – Hairlip Rock? What an asshole you are!!! Joaquin's a great actor, and he's hot….so shut the hell up, Erin! I suppose you & all your family & friends have no physical flaws, huh? Only a complete loser would judge someone by the way they look. Hope you wake up tomorrow with a giant tumor on your face.

    phoenix also made a cameo w/ his band in the movie beautiful girls (1996) and they weren't horrible.

    He was an awesome singer in Walk The Line! I'm looking forward to the album!

    Vanity albums one of the great traditions in Hollyweird, so I, of course LOVE it. It's all future kitsch for hipsters in the year 2525.

    212

    You know, he actually did all of his own singing in Walk the Line and he's pretty decent. We'll see what he comes out with though.

    I loved his singing in "Walk the Line."

  14. Kait says – reply to this


    214

    You idiot, both Reese and Joaquin used their own vocals for Walk the Line. Reese was offered her own recording contract because the music industry was so impressed with her singing capability. She turned it down.

    HIS VOICE IS AMAZING. YOU WATCH PEREZ, SOON YOU'LL HAVE HIS CD!! DONT KNOCK IT UNTIL YOU TRY IT. JP IS HOT!!!!!!

    Sing and/or acting are performance, and perhaps these creative skills emanate from the same side of the brain, which explains why so many actors can and love to sing or vice versa. Not too long ago Hollywood valued the triple threat actor, singer and dancer. Why should he hide his love of singing because he acted in movies? He shouldn't. They're both creative outlets. Look what amazing and seemingly effortless dancers some of those stars have turned out to be. They learn in a few weeks what it takes some to learn over many years.

    217

    what you all seem to forget is that in the old studio system (old hollywood) you could not work unless you could act, dance, sing and perhaps other talents such as juggling etc. the more diverse you were the better. Are these people any good? not really but it is not so far fetched that an actor can sing, dance etc. They are entertainers.

    Re: nikki – Completely agree with Nikki! If Tim Burgess is involved, no harm can come to this

    219

    I do not understand why there are so many people "up in arms" about this. So, what? The man wants to give it a try, I say go for it. He is very creative and this seems to be another outlet for him!! I say, leave him alone, and whether or not it does well, we will just see. I give him many props, and he did do an excellent job singing and playing the guitar on Walk the Line.

    But Robert Downey Jr.'s one and only CD is actually brilliant. Been too long since it was released. Need another. Maybe with the
    Ironman bucks, he'll head back to the studio.

    221

    I have his cd that he made with Reese for Walk the Line. Although he's off the tempo, he doesn't suck as bad as you would think. She does, though.

  22. Billy says – reply to this


    222

    Clearly he can sing…like Johnny Cash, but wtf will that translate too for Brit Pop? Celebrities need to chill the f*ck out with the crossover acting-singing. If people wanted to hear actors sing, there'd be mulitplatinum actors turned singers…

    223

    I love this man and everything he does is great and I've got this soundtrack from a movie that he did and he sounds great..the song is Cry cry cry

  24. Cindy says – reply to this


    224

    OMG!! I hope he does it! He was amazing in walk the line and I always end up hearing Joaquins version instead of Johnny cash..I SWEAR HE IS AMAZING ALL AROUND..lol..I would marry him right now if he asked me too..lol..im a huge fan and will support everything he does!!

    Re: Erin

    Who cares what you do you stupid cunt. FYI he does NOT have a harelip you ignorant twat,

  26. alison says – reply to this


    226

    Allthough I think this trend is pretty pathetic as well.

    If he is working with Tim Burgess, who is fairly close to a musical genius… it could be good!!!

  27. cocoxo says – reply to this


    227

    Um…dude can sing. Didn't you watch Walk the Line?

    228

    JP won a Grammy for the last album he did so I don't think we've much to worry about. Stop hating.

    who gives a fuck?! He's HOTT!!!!!!!!!!!

    230

    his voice sounded good in the cash movie…maybe it'll work. i just listened to the some johannsen samples, thanks for sucking up tom waits….

  31. Sara says – reply to this


    231

    His brother - River Phoenix - had a band with his sister Rain before he died called Aleka's Attic. It was fairly successful…
    Rain now has a band called Papercranes which is actually pretty damn good, I've heard them live a few times…his sister Liberty sings with the band on a few songs, as does her other sister Summer…
    So, they definitely have a musical family…
    The weird thing is that when they were kids, Joaquin was kinda the odd man out, cause he wasn't in a band…

  32. Me says – reply to this


    232

    Why not? his brother River was a musician.

  33. tara says – reply to this


    233

    IT WONT SUCK YOU FUCK. he freakin sang the vocals in walk the line. looking forward to it. great actor too.

  34. leslie says – reply to this


    234

    well, he actually grew up singing and performing for money with his bros and sis's and his sisters actually have a well-respected band in gainesville, FL (that is not a joke), but anyhoo, he comes from a legitamately musical family, it could be interesting.

  35. Jenny says – reply to this


    235

    Actually Joaquin did all the singing on Walk The Line. He sounded just like Johnny Cash.

  36. baker says – reply to this


    236

    239

    Normally this would bother me, but since he did his own singing in Walk the Line, this doesn't bug me as much. By no means will I actually buy the album, but I don't hate it.
