Check out Joaquin Phoenix in Hollywood today on a cigarette break. As you know, Joaquin announced his retirement, but then it was supposedly all for a mock documentary, which no one understood. And now he’s back to doing what he does best: acting. Hopefully without complaining. Because he really is a very, very, very good actor. And I really, really want to see him in his next film, PT Anderson’s The Master (though that title could change) because many suspect that it’s based on Scientology freak and founder L Ron Hubbard...

See?

Philip Seymour Hoffman plays the title character. Joaquin stepped in to replace Jeremy Renner. Click here to read all about the intrigue surrounding the film, how financing fell through, how they put it back together, and whether or not Tom Cruise has anything to do with it. Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead) is doing the score.

Good, right? That he’s involved in such a provocative project? Very good. And no more “bye goods” then. But maybe a shower...
