Joaquin Phoenix: Frontrunner in 'Vampire Hunter'

Joaquin Phoenix is reportedly the frontrunner to play Henry Sturges in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

The 36-year-old actor has met on the project and “it’s his if he wants it,” according to Deadline.

The role, which previously was rumored to have been offered to Tom Hardy, “is for Henry, a mythic, ageless figure who turns Lincoln into an axe-throwing expert slayer of vampires.”

Benjamin Walker is set to play the title role in the highly anticipated film!

    does any one else think aria’s photos are over the top? i don’t care that she’s always putting bizarre make up all over her face, but shes always trying to reveal her body. shes pretending all those new pics are about a cat but the cat is just an excuse for her to pose in a ripped tshirt that shows her chest and underware that shows her crotch. does she just dress up all day and have someone take pics of her? its not like these are pics for a magazine shoot. or are they?

    I’ll believe it when I see it. He has been rumored to be in alot of things and none of them panned out. Frankly, it is sad that he wasted years of his life on his flop of a film. Its also sad that IF he gets this role, it would be the first REAL film he made in 3 years. I guess he got bored laying around the house all day being unemployed.

    I really hope this is true ,because this guy is extremely talented.It’s true that he messed up a bit with ISH but that doesn’t mean he is should be treated like this.I think he was really brave for trying to do something a bit different.And if you don’t like him why waste you’re time taking trash about him?It’s just stupid!

  33. 33
    anonymous Says:

    I don’t think he messed up with ISH at all. I loved it. I’m sure he doesn’t care a hoot what anybody thought. It was his experiment, his proving to himself that he could give fame up at a moment’s notice, that if the whole world decided he was nuts, he didn’t care. He showed that he’s stronger than all the ridiculous fame nonsense. Anyone with a sense of humor GOT the movie. The people who act like they were robbed of something need to look at their own priorities in life. Get over it.

  34. 34
    Oh please Says:

    There is nothing to GET about the movie. I hate when his idiotic fans act like their was some deep message in the film. When they themselves said they DIDN’T KNOW what the film was supposed to mean, and that they were just playing around with an idea.

    I also hate when his fans act like he ‘doesn’t care’ about all the negative **** that came out of this film. OF COURSE he ‘cares’. Casey went bankrupt, no doubt JP lost a huge chunk of change on the film as well. On top of that no one wants to hire him, and only NOW are we hearing rumors about him being offered a role…which is still to this day only a rumor. The world bashed him for being so self indulgent and egotistical to think anyone would give a crap about the publicity stunts he pulled, enough to see his film.

    Yes, he does care about all this. You brainwashed fans can actually believe his BS “I don’t care about hollywood’ act, but it is an ACT. Just like when other celebs say that, yet behind closed doors are having mental breakdowns over what the media says about them. He does care, and he regrets doing the film. He’ll never admit it.

  35. 35
    anonymous Says:

    Oh please – you’re so deep you spell “there” “their”. No one said there was a DEEP message. It was a fun film ridiculing celebrity ego. You think Joaquin and Casey didn’t know there’d be a-wipes like you ready to pounce and hate? Haters are a dime a dozen. You don’t get that you’re ridiculed in the film as well.

  36. 36
    Oh please Says:

    @anonymous:

    LOL wtf does a SPELLING ERROR have to with anything? And when did I say I was deep? Oh wait, you’re just making up **** because what I said was RIGHT so you’re changing the subject. Typical fanbot idiot.

    There is nothing to “get” you jackass. Again, this film was an amateur piece of garbage that a high school kid could have made with the proper equipment. We already KNOW about pop culture, the media, and the world obsession with celebrity. THIS HAS BEEN A TOPIC THAT HAS BEEN TALKED ABOUT FOR YEARS. So NOTHING they said was a NEW or unique message.

  37. 37
    anonymous Says:

    I’m not changing the subject.

    You don’t think anything in the film was new or unique. What other celebrity has deliberately hoisted himself on his own fame petard? Joaquin was never a performance artist like Kaufman or Cohen. Do you think another Hollywood actor, twice nominated for an Oscar, would have done this? I think Robert Downey Jr. is the only other actor that has the balls to try something like this.

    It’s clear you really don’t get it. You’re regurgitating your own words. You can’t grasp was was unique about this project.

  38. 38
    Oh please Says:

    No, you’re just a delusional fan who thinks this was a “unique” idea when it wasn’t. NOTHING about his film was unique. Obsession with celebrity and fame HAS BEEN TALKED ABOUT FOR YEARS. What in the hell did he display in the movie that was new? NOTHING. He did what reality tv stars do: create attention for themselves by doing stupid ****. That’s it. He did what the cast of Jersey Shore does weekly. The obsession with celebrity is a played out topic. We all know how the world is when it comes to celebrity, we don’t need another stupid film about it.

    Countless people have done similar things he did. Have you ever heard of Crispin Glover? Go look him up. Yes, Andy Kaufman IS another one. He made a career out of pulling stunts like this in the media, even when it made people HATE him. Only, he didn’t back down and apologize once people bashed him like JP did. He kept up his antics regardless of the negative reaction.

  39. 39
    anonymous Says:

    Everything you have said has been said ad nauseum. The whole world has heard of Crispin Glover, but if you can’t discern the differences between what he did (or Andy or Sascha) and this project, I don’t have time to teach you. Come up with a fresh argument. Your points reveal inadequate comprehension of the film.

    You’re really just mad that no one gives a flying fig about YOUR opinion, least of all Phoenix and Affleck. They’re laughing at you for getting your knickers in a knot.

  40. 40
    Oh please Says:

    Again, nice avoiding everything I said and instead claiming I “don’t understand” for the millionth time. Nice excuse because you can’t prove me wrong.

    No one cares about my opinion. Well guess what? No one cared about Joaquin’s movie which is why it bombed and he destroyed his now non existent career. So really I doubt Joaquin is doing much “laughing” these days. But keep thinking that you warped stan.

    And what Crisping Glover did was EXACTLY the same as what JP did on Letterman. Apparently you know absolutely nothing. Crispin pulled his stunt on Letterman because he was sick of how the media defines what is crazy and what is normal. What is art and what is public self destruction. He was playing the character for a movie he was promoting on letterman. The world thought he was crazy/on drugs when he wasn’t. Sound familiar? Yeah. It is EXACTLY what Joaquin did over a decade later.

    But keep avoiding the facts. Instead repeat yourself some more about how I just don’t understand. I guess the entire world is just wrong, and the 10 people who liked this atrocity are total geniuses.

  41. 41
    anonymous Says:

    I saw Glover on Letterman. Now tell everyone how that appearance was a part of a sustained 2-year performance. Oh? It wasn’t? Yeah, that’s right. Yeah, and Glover didn’t even stick around to give an interview. And it was OBVIOUSLY a performance.

    Brittanyitch Says:

    now aria has a bondage photo up on her twitter. i mean really what is she trying to prove. shes not real suttle is she?

  43. 43
    Oh please Says:

    @anonymous:

    Crispin filmed a movie in that character, then went on letterman in the same character. So yes like I SAID, it was a performance.

    And quit acting like Joaquin “stayed in character for 2 years”. He didn’t. He did a few public stunts here and there, then went into hiding where NO ONE saw or heard from him. They filmed ON AND OFF and in no way was he performing for 2 years. I do love how you make it seem like he dedicated his life for 2 years to that role, when in reality in total it took just as long to film a NORMAL movie as it did to film the movie he did. He even said the movie was done for 6 months and he was back to “normal”.

    Yes it was the same thing as crispin The only difference is when crispin did it, there wasn’t TMZ, and internet gossip sites to keep his popularity up. Just a few entertainment tv shows.

  44. 44
    anonymous Says:

    I’m starting to think YOU are Glover, you’re so defensive. Glover was never in the same position as Phoenix. Phoenix was nominated for Academy Awards for Gladiator and Walk the Line. Oh, what was Glover nominated for? Oh, yeah, nothing. Were paparazzi following him into bathrooms at the airport? Missed the photos. Glover wasn’t taking a risk of any kind. It was a publicity stunt.

  45. 45
    Oh please Says:

    Joaquin is a c list celebrity.lol @ you making it seem like the paparazzi follow him ANYWHERE.Yeah, if he pays them they do. And he was nominated for an oscar 10 years ago, and once in 2005. WTF does that have to do with anything? It doesn’t. Thousands of people have been nominated for an oscar over the years, it doesn’t mean **** unless you WIN one which he hasn’t/

    And again, WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH THE FILM! Him being an oscar nominated actor 10 years ago means his film as special? Means his film was good? Means it made sense? Means it wasn’t self indulgent? Means it was unique? IT MEANS NONE OF THOSE THINGS

    Looks like you’re running out of an argument. Even though he did the same exact thing Cripsin Glover did years ago, apparently it was totally different because Joaquin was nominated for an oscar and lost. lol You are an idio

  46. 46
    Oh please Says:

    @anonymous:

    I’ll also add a comment against your idiotic “glover wasn’t taking any kind of risk” reply.

    You really are dumb. Yes because only Oscar losers are taking risks when they publicly humiliate yourself. Glover pulled his stunt in his TWENTIES, before his film career even really took off. If there was any way of ruining a career it would have been to pull a stunt like that before you were even very successful, back at a time when reality tv show nuts weren’t all over the media making fools of themselves.

    Joaquin was in 2 oscar nominated films and he is almost 40. He lost both of them to his co stars. The rest of his work has either A) Bombed B) been crappy garbage material movies fit for teens like “Signs” and “The Village”. It is a joke to make it look like he was george cloony when he did this film. He was a semi famous c list actor who made only 2 big films in his life that people liked.

    Glinda Says:

    Oh, please, you’re a pedantic philistine. Phoenix is 36, not almost 40. I LOVED him in Quills and Return to Paradise. He is talented. If you don’t recognize that, you’re a jealous moron. Oh, and Two Lovers. God, he was fabulous in that.

    Anonymous, not everyone loved I’m Still Here. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. It wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea. It was fun and smart, but not brilliant.

    Brittany, I agree. I think singing is just a front for Aria’s true occupation, one that involves fetish gadgets of all kind. Or perhaps she’s readying her second occupation if the singing doesn’t pan out. If she could sing in tune while fully clothed, she might have a fighting chance.

    .......... Says:

    Anonymous, the issue here is you aren’t speaking about the film itself. You’re changing the subject in all different directions. The FILM is the topic, not how he made the film. The outcome the stunts he pulled had on his career are irrelevant in this subject….because it has nothing to do with the 90 minute movie we all saw.

    What I can’t stand about ISH is that whenever there is a debate about the movie, people turn it into ‘he ruined his career with the stunts he pulled! Thats why he was bold”. That has NOTHING to do with the movie itself.Why are we speaking about how he chose to make the film, instead of the actual movie? Actors lose/gain weight, train, inure themselves on movie sets all the time but we never see it. So HOW he made the film makes no difference.

    The film itself was weak and that is the bottom line. For all the controversy that was stirred up, you’d expect this movie to be groundbreaking and eye opening. Instead it was a messy, sloppy film with no purpose. Seeing Phoenix getting pooped on, watching a minute straight of him puking in the toilet, seeing him unconvincingly try to become a “rapper”. Casey and Joaquin stated they had no real idea about what the film was going to be, they just played it by ear. That showed. It LOOKED like they had no clue what they were doing and just shot a bunch of random clips & then turned it into a movie.

    Anon Says:

    He’s an eccentric actor know for taking oddball parts…and being an oddball himself.

    He was George Mcfly in “Back To The furture” you’d know him for best. He was also the bad guy in ‘Alice in wonderland’ with Johnny Depp….he’s been in a lot of well know/well received movies(rivers edge, whats eating gilbert grape). But he was brought up because apparently years ago he went on letterman and pulled a huge stunt. I just watched it and he was acting nuts. Letterman walked off stage after a while when Crispin wouldn’t stop acting like a nut. He was really pissed about it. However with Joaquin dave played along because he knew Joaquin was acting. So thats the difference between good acting and bad acting. Dave knew Joaquin was acting even though he wasn’t told. Dave had no clue Crispin was acting and walked off stage in a pissy mood.

    LOL Says:

    I know crispin from charlies angels full throttle and beowulf. I respect him even more than I do jp. After jp was done with his act he came crawling back and apologizing for what he did. Crispin to this day doesn’t even tell anyone why he did what he did, or if he was on drugs. He lets it remain a mystery because he thinks it is more fun to keep people guessing. He doesn’t give a crap about what hollywood thinks of him.

    ^ You defend “the village” and knock an iconic movie like Back to the future? lmao Yeah, your opinion matters.

    Glover was only in BTTF 1, not all 3. And those movies are timeless.

    Not even a glover fan, but I have seen back to the future and LOVE it. Ive also seen the village and it was the most predictable piece of garbage ever

    I’m Still Here did very well in England but folks here like that type of humor. The flick got great reviews here. The write ups in places like The Guardian and The Observer were quite good so the theatre halls were full. People thought Joaquin was something of an American Ricky Gervais. Casey was nominated for a director’s award here.

    Yeah you’re right. I’ll rent spacecamp instead!!

    Then go watch some more of M. Knight Shyamalan terrible predictable films like “signs”. Or better yet, “the 6th sense” which he STOLE the ENTIRE plot from an episode of a children’s nickelodeon show “are you afraid of the dark”.

    After that, Ill go watch I’m still here, so there will be a total of 5 people who have seen it.

    mugwort Says:

    I don’t want to get into the controversy of “I’m Still Here” Or who he’s dating. I think what’s relevant here is his movie parts. IMHO I think JP was great in Gladiator, WTL. Heck he even was terrific in his early films, ie Parenthood and TDF. I ‘m thinking too he’ll be excellent in Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. As Henry Sturgis Vampire Hunter.

    In response to your query, American, a lot of British humor involves seeing haughty people taken down a peg or two. Keep Up Appearances is a good example. We really like it when someone is willing to do it to himself, like Ricky Gervais did in Extras. People who can make fun of themselves are generally pretty secure. They help us all to laugh at themselves. Joaquin put himself in a movie where he makes relentless fun of himself. We Brits love that. He’s a mate.

    Hey, Figures, you’re an ignoramus. English humor is great. What, you never saw Monty Python, The Fully Monty, Absolutely Fabulous, The Office (original version), or Extras?

I like all of Ricky’s shows, The Office and Extras. Nothing wrong with comedy. We all need a good laugh and laughter is the best medicine. Good thing because what we hear about health care in America sounds bleak. Good luck with that. I can tell you that the Brits like Obama a sight more than Bush. We’re still shaking our heads about Bush.

    William Faulkner Says:

    He couldn’t do both “As I Lay Dying” and “Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.” The shooting schedules conflicted. Both directors wanted him, but Joaquin is more interested in the Faulkner pic that Franco is directing. Joaquin is not interested in genre films that may require acting in sequels. That hampers doing other films in the future.

    Yup Says:

    From what I hear, Joaquin has turned down quite a few roles in the last six months. We’re only hearing about a few. I wish he was playing Henry Sturges. I’ve always thought he’d make a killer vampire or vampire killer.

    Bardot Says:

    Oh, I’m so happy for them both! I just knew Joaquin and Aria would get back together. Maybe they’ll sing a duet. He could rap to that cute song she wrote about him. They’re adorable.

    No way! Says:

    He was at Ben Stiller’s Haiti benefit. Unless he went to Bardot later.

    don't think so. Says:

    Bardot’s in LA. He was at Ben Stiller’s benefit for Haiti in NYC last night.

    REALLY? Says:

    He was with Aria? REALLY?? Well if he can forgive that song he can forgive anything. Man should of been a priest.

    spot, there’s no shame in your being on food stamps. Times are tough. Don’t worry about Joaquin; video rentals and TV airings of his films have made him very rich.

    Dont worry Says:

    Don’t worry FYI, no one is falling for the troll. That person has been a troll on JP boards for YEARS. Since at least 2006 and you can look it up. She is always posting stupid false delusional **** about his “love life” to get his fans stirred up. I just read an old post from the daily blabber boards from 2006 where this same person was saying “Joaquin is in love with Jody and she is pregnant!!!!”

    This person is SERIOUSLY disturbed and has no life.

    And just to save you all the time from taking the troll’s bait. Uh, yeah Aria is with someone else.

    Kurt Cobain Says:

    @see.luv:

    Stfu we all know you’re ceecee under another name. The same loser troll whos been on here for years.

    And I CARE if he knew Kurt. If you don’t know the answer, shut the **** up and let someone else answer. I want to know if they were friends at all. I know River was heavily into music and trying to make it as a musician in the early 90s at the same time Kurt was massive. I have a feeling River idolized him, and I want to know if they knew each other.

  108. 108
    see.luv Says:

    if you care, go to river’s imdb board. they’ll tell you that cobain idolized river. will knowing that change your world?

    i’m not cee. please. like i’d give a $ hit about girl groups that denigrate authentically talented women. paradiso girls didn’t even sing in tune. they made the pussycat girls look like the medieval babes.

    NIRVANA! Says:

    No, River and Kurt never met, but Kurt did dedicate his song, “Jesus Doesn’t Want Me For a Sunbeam” to him. I’m pretty sure it’s on youtube. I wish they had met. I think they would have been really good friends. Happy Birthday, Kurt

    actually, no, I didn’t know aria was a pussycat girl. can’t say i’m surprised, though. neither group was known for their talent. any woman can bump and grind in a scanty outfit, but that doesn’t make her a singer.

    No he was not at any parties. I got word he has been in New York for a while, and he wasn’t in LA during those parties. This excites me because I like only an hour and a half away from NYC!!

    My girlfriends and I will be at Claddagh and Looney’s on St. Patrick’s Day and we hope you’ll stop in. I don’t drink car bombs but, no worries, I can light your fire, darlin’.

    Emily Says:

    Back off, Fire, or I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your light out. No, I’m not being kinky, I’m just telling you to stay away from my man. Baltimore on St. Paddy’s Day? Pleeeeeeese. We’ve got firemen in NYC too, and I’ve had the privilege of getting to know the pole on Broome very well.

    Joaq, I’ll be at McSorley’s. Don’t leave me in the sawdust.

    anyone here ever been on the its all about joaquin forums? That poster bellisima is SOOOO annoying! all she does is CONSTANTLY start rumors about who she thinks jp is dating or tries to stir up controversy by acting like she thinks jp is with this person and that person. she rarely ever posts about anything else because she is freaking OBSESSED with his love life & spreading gossip.

    i know she is reading this right now because she is an obsessed loser. well bellissima, no one is falling for your crap. i know you are one of the idiots going from forum to forum to spread gossip about joaquin. btw: your english is horrible. learn to spell. thanks

  136. 136
    HAHAHAHAHAHA Says:

    Yeah I have an account on there and yes she is a total moron. I just looked over there and what do you think she is talking about AGAIN?! In poor English she “want Joaquin to find love”. Like an idiot. Meanwhile every girl he is seen in a 20 mile radius of Joaquin, she freaks out and assumes they’re “dating”. What an idiot. I’m so glad we aren’t those kind of fans. lmao

    137 +138 = same person, and the same idiot who was obsessed with aria.

    Jp ain’t with anyone and wont be for a long time. He is off to film his movie for several months and will be in work mode. And alisan? Is that a joke? This man will never date anyone out of their 20′s. Sorry.

    If you’re gonna make up lies, at least make them believable. Dumbass

  140. 140
    Yup Says:

    *This man will never date anyone out of their 20s*

    He already has. Don’t be surprised when he’s sighted backstage at the next Kills show.

    Girlfriends have always been on JP’s movie sets.

  141. 141
    lol Says:

    Whats funny is you think he has “girlfriends”. More like, sex toys. He hasnt had a real exclusive steady girlfriend since he was in his 20s

    & No to our knowledge, he has NEVER dated anyone out of their 20′s. He is a cradle robber. He likes young girls, not grown women. Not ONE of his g/f’s have been past their late 20′s.

    You can try to make up crap all you want just like you did with Aria, but its not going to work. Not even the most gullible idiot would believe your latest lie in an attempt to get fans gossiping. Keep trying.

  142. 142

    I don’t know a thing about Aria but I’ve been on 2 of his movie sets.

    Hairo923 Says:

    OMG you guys know what I just found out?! One of Joaquin’s good friends/good friend of his family’s as well, plays in a band located IN MY TOWN!!!! Not just in my state, or in my city, but in MY TOWN! I am flipping out. I am never gonna leave my house without hair and makeup done at all times. Never in my life did I think that someone Joaquin is friends with could be located where I live of ALL places in the world.

    Rain and her band have even apparently gone to each other’s shows/played with each other before!

    Boyz in the Kitchen catered my cousin’s wedding. The food was excellent. Yup, are you still a caterer? A friend of mine wants to be a chef but he doesn’t want to go to culinary school right away. He wants to work in the field as see if he likes it? Does a place like Boyz in the Kitchen only hire professionals or would they take people willing to train?
