He’s back! Joaquin Phoenix has returned to the controversial stage of “Late Show with David Letterman.” The last time the actor appeared on the program was in early 2009 while at the peak of his I’m Still Here insanity. He was heavier, shaggier, and as receptive as a brick wall in conversation but that’s all changed. Now that his movie is in theaters, he’s dropped the act and gone back to his clean shaven, put together self. Here’s a sneak peek at Phoenix on Letterman…

Letterman makes a quip about Phoenix never going out doors and then gets down to the nitty gritty and asks, “What do you have to say for yourself?” Let’s be honest, isn’t that what we all want to know?

Even though it annoys the hell out of us that he wasted so much of his time and career playing a hobo we’re happy he’s back. We can’t take away his talent. The man has two Oscar nominations under his belt for a reason.

You can watch the interview in its entirety when “Late Show with David Letterman” airs tonight!

What do you think of Joaquin Phoenix’s new look? Are you happy to see him clean and together again?
