You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Apparently he announced this back in October.

If you retire, and nobody notices, did it really happen?

"I want to take this opportunity to give you an exclusive...I've been through that. I've done it.

"No, I'm not kidding," he added, presumably not kidding.

At Phoenix's side Monday night was Casey Affleck, who told E! News that his To Die For costar is really serious about hanging up his acting shoes. Honest.

Let's see if this works out as well as it did for Bruce Willis

The actor announced in October that he was leaving the movie business. Walking away from a flourishing career was enough to shock most fans, but his reasons for leaving were even more perplexing.

Phoenix decided to leave the big screen for the stage, hoping to start a career in music.

Whether it's intentional or not is up for debate, but it's most assuredly an absolute joke.

:-b Less like a rapper and more like a guy that should be reciting poetry at a coffee house.
