It was recently revealed by director Casey Affleck that his documentary I’m Still Here that focuses on the wild and crazy life of Joaquin Phoenix was all a lie. That’s right it was fake. Phoenix hasn’t retired from acting, he just put on one, if not the greatest performance of his career. So we’re not surprised that Vulture is reporting that he may join the cast of the upcoming film, The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
According to the site, Jennifer Garner will co-star in the movie that centers “around a child-prodigy musician and his parents.” Garner will play the mother and an offer has gone out to Mark Wahlberg to play the dad BUT if that doesn’t happen do you know who’s next in line? Joaquin Phoenix. Director Peter Hedges sees him as the next natural candidate for the role. Interesting? He wouldn’t have been the second person to pop up in our minds but OK.
At the moment Disney is working feverishly to get the film off the ground within the next years and are currently on the look out for young actors to play the title role. Green is described as someone between 9 and 12 years old, “with longish hair and warm, curious eyes.” Do you know someone who fits that description? It sounds kind of creepy to us.
Who would you rather see in the father role, Wahlberg or Phoenix?
