Joaquin Phoenix returns to Dave's guest chair for the first time since his infamous 2009 appearance. Joaquin Phoenix on Letterman 2010 - Hoax revealed about the movie project "I'm Still Here". In 2009 Joaquin visited David Letterman and acted strange but all was a hoax for a movie project togheter with Casey Affleck. David seems a bit pissed off for that and wants payment

"I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person", Joaquin Phoenix told David Letterman on Wednesday night. He was exactly right. Most people can tell the difference, most of the time, which means that most us have built-in limits to the range of our possibilities. Our leashes are only so long. Even if Phoenix wanted to be a hip-hop star, genuinely and truly, he was never going to be one". Source:
