Edward Norton is being replaced as the Incredible Hulk. Who is his replacement? Nobody is sure yet – but one of the names being kicked around is Joaquin Pheonix.
Joaquin Phoenix. The man who spent an entire year making a movie about the lost year that he has – where he has a publicist blow him, a person defecate on his chest, and he walks around more naked than any man has ever appeared on film. The man who grew a beard and did the talk show circuits apparently as performance art – but no-one’s really sure.
I am in complete support of this idea. Not only does Joaquin Phoenix swell when you get him angry, he might go crazy and write things on his hands. That will then turn green. What’s amazing to me is that with the plethora of actors that are out there now, why they need Academy Award nominated ones to portray superhero roles. It’s like, these people do portrayals of people down on their luck, drug addicts, crossdressers and crazy people – so they can star in a movie where their torso can be made into an action figure.
I know you’re all cool story bro, but seriously. Joaquin Phoenix with a beard swelling up into a green man? I’m a huge fan.
