Joaquin Phoenix - AskMen.com (1405 words)
Joaquin Phoenix spent much of his youth known primarily for being River Phoenix's younger brother, but the performer has long since established himself as one of his generation's finest actors.
Joaquin Rafael Phoenix was born on October 28, 1974, in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Joaquin's frantic call to 911 was leaked to the press and it took several years before the young man could even think about re-entering the acting world.
Joaquin Phoenix at Hollywood.com (3055 words)
Joaquin Phoenix was among the more unconventional A-list Hollywood actors, with an intensity of personal character that was apparent right from his humble breakout in the indie gem, “To Die For” (1995).
Phoenix had been at the Sunset Strip nightclub, the Viper Room, with River the night the 23-year-old actor took a lethal combination of drugs, and it was his voice on the frantic 911 phone call that news shows insisted on playing, despite the flinchingly private nature of the moment.
Phoenix – who, by this time, had changed his name back to Joaquin – was quietly brilliant as a burnout teenager seduced by an ambitious local newswoman (Nicole Kidman) into murdering her career-squelching husband.
