Joaquin Phoenix wasn't the only person to dupe 'Late Show' viewers during his infamous appearance last year. No, it now appears David Letterman was in on the ruse the entire time.

Pop-Ed: When Casey Affleck announced Joaquin Phoenix's career transformation was fake, it was like when Adam Lambert finally came out of the closet to Rolling Stone. No duh.

Casey Affleck's much-hyped new documentary, 'I'm Still Here,' which follows a drugged-out, self-imploding Joaquin Phoenix as he tries to break into hip-hop, isn't real, Affleck admitted in a Thursday New York Times article. "I never intended to trick anybody," Affleck, who's married to Phoenix's sister Summer, told the magazine. "The idea of a quote, hoax, unquote, never entered my mind." But,...

A buzz preceded actor Casey Affleck's directorial debut, 'I'm Still Here': Was the movie about brother-in-law Joaquin Phoenix's seemingly downward spiral from actor to hip-hop musician really a no-holds-barred documentary -- or was it just a set up?

The trailer for 'I'm Still Here' has arrived. Starring Joaquin Phoenix as an aspiring rapper named Joaquin Phoenix, the documentary (?) has been in the works for over a year, ever since the 'Walk the Line' actor emerged into the spotlight with a gnarly beard and equally unruly hair to make bizarre public appearances, including a now-infamous sit-down with David Letterman. All the while, Phoenix...
