    LOVE Joaquin! Not a fan of the beard, though. I suppose its for his character.

  • macheath

    Joaquin of the most adorable people in the industry today, and I don’t think it need be mentioned that Jennifer is so beautiful and talented. I wonder if Paul was hanging around set with the kids!

    Looks like a great movie. Like seeing Joaquin in the beard, covers up his harelip.

  • angieluvsjoaq

Of course having the beautifully talented Joaquin in it, you can never go wrong! Keep em coming Jared!

    Yay! Yet another Joaquin flick! The synopsis for the movie sounds great, and along with Joaquin and all the other amzaing actors I look forward to its release.

  • Susan DeL

    We’ve been on the set with Phoenix and Connelly for three days. They look really dramatic and convincing. We can hear Connelly’s beautiful screaming in a clear voice for a long distance, and Phoenix’s cries of “Get an ambulance!” are scary and real. Having seen the real thing, the movie will be a real treat!

  • Raquel

    I love the both of them…gonna be a good movie.

  • Marilyn

    I have a problem picturing him in any way but as Johnny Cash. His acting is brilliant and I know it will be a great movie.

  • Laurie

    Thanks Jared! More set pictures would be highly appreciated, if possible. Also Joaquin and Jennifer worked together before, in “Inventing the Abbotts.” Good movie!

  • peggy

    Joaquin has a scar not a harelip.

  • Kenya González

    Joaquín’s scar is called a microform cleft lip, not a hare lip, which is a term considered quite inappropriate. The microform is a rarity and almost a miracle of nature, open tissues on the upper lip that will become a cleft lip just get together spontaneously before birth, leaving the scar. I know this because I have exactly the same scar in the same place, which is uncommon in a woman but I have it. Let’s not consider Joaquín’s scar as something that should be hidden but as a characteristic that makes him unique, a true example of the diversity in human beings. Saludos desde México para todos.

  • Frankie

    Hil2 #6 Are you kidding? Why should he cover up his beautiful face? That scar just makes him sexier. Cant wait for the movie to come out, thanks for the pics jared i was beginning to think id never see him on your site again.

  • peggy

    Your right he’s very handsome and Ilove his beautiful eyes.

  • Melissa J

    joaquin Is a wonderful person and a great actor, It’s so great to see him doing another movie, It looks like It’ll be another great film for him!



  • Nina

    It is great to know that Joaquin is back in action – where he should be! I absolutely adore him! He is incredible and he loves animals – what more can you ask for? Not much. He’s so special!

  • silver

    Great to see the pics! More and more pics pls!!

  • Tanja

    You have charisma, Joaquin!

  • Michelle

    I love these pictures. Joaquin is beautiful. I really appreciate how the comment above clarified his scar. Some people can be so ignorant. Keep the pictures coming!

  • Sharon

    Very interested in seeing Ruffalo and Phoenix in the same film. Love Ruffalo abilities and attributes not as familiar with Phoenix’s abilities except in Walk the Line. Like that the two are together since Ruffalo’s tumor surgery & recovery meant he had to drop out of Signs and Phoenix then stepped in to that part. Pictures of Mark Ruffalo too,please!!!

  • Marcela

    Desde un país muy lejando llamado Chile, me sumo a todos los comentarios anteriores, porque Joaquín Phoenix es mi actor favorito y he visto todas sus películas y no tengo dudas que ésta será una de las buenas también.
    I LOVE JOAQUIN, regards from CHILE

  • Mary Lou

    I was lucky enough to meet Joaquin yesterday while fiming in Stamford. He was gracious & posed for a pic with me & signed an autograph. He is the sweetest & nicest guy. Seeing those gorgeous eyes in person …oh my!!!!

  • Eva

    It´s so good to know there´s a new film coming with Joaquin. He is such a great actor and I really enjoy his work. And “Inventing The Abbotts” is one of the sweetest films ever done. So is “Walk The Line”.I love them. And I´m looking forward to “Reservation Road”. And I wish all the best to Joaquin.

    I love Joaquin!He`s wonderful actor !Good luck for him!OPTCHÁ!!!


    Joaquin should win an Oscar for this roll. I know, I know the movie isn’t even done yet, but dang, they have overlooked him for way to long. He got snubbed for Walk the Line, maybe the “Industry” will wake up this time. Thanks for the pics, they are great.

  • Angela

    Who needs Halloween and candy, he is all the eye candy I need!! Cant wait to see the movie!!

  • Daniela

    They are filming in Easton? I would love to catch a glimpse for a day this week? We love Joaquim!

  • pm

    Can’t wait to see this one! A great cast…. Joaquin Phoenix who is ADORABLE AND HOTTER than ever and love his movies, Jennifer Connelly (she was especially great in a Beautiful Mind) and the other great actors !! Wow! I look forward to reading the book as well. I think it will be a winner like Walk the Line!! A long time to wait until next year to see it but I am really looking forward to seeing another Joaquin Phoenix movie!
