We knew it was too good to be true!

Walk the Line actor turned bearded rapper/performance artist/whatever the eff that was last spring Joaquin Phoenix will not be coming out of retirement to play Edgar Allen Poe!

Last week, Resul Pookutty, who was responsible for the sound design in Slumdog Millionaire, told an Indian newspaper that Phoenix has signed on to play the poet in a new movie, but the rumor has been squashed by Joaquin's rep!

Phoenix's rep says that his client has no intentions of appearing in the new flick.

Too bad!

We'd love to see Joaquin return to the big screen!

    Only Johnny Depp for Poe! He is a true fan of Poe and a dark twisted person like Poe!

    HE'S GONE KOO KOO. WHO CARESSS. HE SUCKED AS A SO-CALLED SINGER. EFFING FUNNY. HOPE HE SUFFERS A MENTAL BREAKDOWN AND BE DONE WITH 4EVER. NO SYMPATHY FOR THIS IDIOT.

    Once again, it would have been better to link to GossipCop.com, which actually had the rep's comment rather than link to a third party - ContactMusic - which attributed it to Gossip Cop. At least you now have accurate info.

    Nice to know that since retiring Joaquin still needs a Rep…
    Wonder why? Perhaps not as Retired as he says he is?

    Today Perez Hilton writes, “Not True! Joaquin Phoenix Not Playing Poe!”

    What’s interesting about that headline is that Gossip Cop exclusively busted the rumor Joaquin Phoenix was going to play Edgar Allen Poe TWO DAYS AGO, while at the same time Perez initially called Phoenix’s being (reportedly) tapped for the Poe role an “Inspired casting choice.”

    Whoops.

    Now, Perez has done an about face.

    But what’s also interesting is that for today’s reversal, Perez cut and pasted reporting from ContactMusic, which noted Phoenix’s rep “tells GossipCop.com the star will not be appearing in the picture.”

    Huh?

    So rather than going to the original source (Gossip Cop) to admit he was wrong, Perez links to a third party, which rightfully gave Gossip Cop credit.

    joaquin has always oozed a slightly mad aspect to his acting which made him great but maybe hes gone a bit far and gone nuts??
