We were mightily concerned when he showed up, fat, bearded and incoherent at the Late Show, because we adore Joaquin. We think he is a wonderful actor. We want to see more of him, when he is clean shaven and articulate.
He was a sssseeexxxyy, evil Roman pervert in Gladiator.
He was fantastic as Johnny Cash, which is no easy feat.
We love him in the James Gray movies We Own the Night and Two Lovers.
And do you remember him as the super sexy, conflicted Catholic father in Quills?
