This will, in my opinion, go down as one of the all time great Letterman interviews. Which is saying a lot considering he's done literally thousands of them. It was towards the end of his career and he had lost his "fire", but the second Joaquin walked on stage you could seem him light up. It was like he went back in time. He knew Phoenix was in character so he proceeded to masterfully fuck with him for nine straight minutes. It was Letterman at his best. Phoenix went back on his show a couple months later and the two laughed about it. What a moment. That's all for this one. Have a great Thursday.
