By Kate Stanhope and Denise Martin, Times staff writers More fun with Joaquin Phoenix! Two weeks ago, we were not nervous for Joaquin Phoenix. We called him a jokester
and forgot all about his silly, probably make-believe ploy to cross over from acting into hip-hop. But he's really sticking to his story, isn't he? (At what point ZZ Top was ever considered hip-hop is another matter.) And judging by his latest appearance on "Late Show With David Letterman,"
we're not sure he's faking it anymore.
