Phoenix enlisted -- or was accompanied by -- pal and fellow actor Casey Affleck in all of his stunts -- err, appearances. Hes reportedly filming a documentary about Phoenix's career switch. Although many see Phoenix as undertaking an elaborate stunt, he maintains the career shift is very real. Is Affleck documenting it all? Or is he in on the ruse and just trying to lend it an air of credibility?
