Letterman Falls for the Joaquin Sideshow

2/12/2009 3:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joaquin Phoenix brought his phony stony act to David Letterman last night -- and while Letterman thought he was catching the wannabe rapper in an altered/inebriated state, it's Dave who was likely hoodwinked.

Joaquin & Letterman: Click to watch
We've been on to Joaquin's scam for weeks now -- no doubt he's shooting a mockumentary with Casey Affleck ... pretending he's quitting acting to become a rap star -- even though his singing sucks -- and showing how the media will fall for it.

In Dave's defense -- he ripped the guy apart, ending the interview with "Sorry Joaquin couldn't be here tonight."

Joaqine Pheonix is a loser. Even if this is one big joke, I will forever think he sucks now.

Seriously. Way to piss all over your career.

I liked Jaoquin very much as an actor but in this role he creeps me out. If he's sick/on drugs, I hope he gets some help. If he's faking, then he should just go away because he probably screwed up his career in Hollywood now.

I saw this last night on Letterman's show and was wondering who the hell that was; was it a bit? Then I looked at guest lineup and Joaquin was one of them. It was interesting.

Letterman is getting old, he needs to retire. He doesn't have it anymore. Sometimes he acts like a dufus, actually it is not acting. He is a dufus.

Glad to see every single TMZ comment is spam.

What kind of drugs is Joaquin Phoenix on?

He's obviously not throwing his career away Fred Durst-style, he's narc'ed out.

HIs handlers should never have let him go on like that.

It was not an act. The guy was totally out of it. He needs help---his peeps are only protecting their salaries in this hard time (recession).

Joaquin is an awesome actor! I believe this is all an act but anyone who can keep an act going for this long should win an award!
