VIDEO: Joaquin Phoenix’s Fall From Grace

Joaquin Phoenix’s music career isn’t off to the greatest start.

The 34-year-old Walk the Line thesp—who announced his retirement from acting in order to pursue a music career in October—took his rap act to Lavo nightclub in Las Vegas over the weekend, with his brother-in-law/documentarian, Casey Affleck, in tow to capture the magic on film. 

Showing up in hobo chic—bearded, in raggedy pants with a prominent hole in the crotch area—Phoenix proceeded to rock the mic to the best of his ability.

Gravity eventually pulled the plug on the performance as Joaquin, jumping around and pumping his fist in the air, tumbled off the nightclub stage. Check out the video below:

Wow; what does the guy do for an encore?
