River Phoenix Gives Thumbs Down To Joaquin’s Cash Impression

TORONTO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Joaquin Phoenix is up for an Oscar thanks to his role as Johnny Cash in Walk The Line, but his performance is getting a thumbs down from both his dead brother and the Man In Black himself.

Toronto-based psychic Anthony Carr recently spoke with the ghost of River Phoenix – who died in 1993 – and the actor admits he prefers Philip Seymour Hoffman’s performance as Truman Capote to his brother’s interpretation of Cash.

He’s not the only one. Carr claims Cash told him he “wasn’t that impressed” by Phoenix and didn’t enjoy Reese Witherspoon’s performance of his wife, June Carter Cash, because he’s “turned off by her lantern jaw.”

Meanwhile, the spirit of the notoriously bitchy Capote has only nice things to say about Hoffman’s performance. He supposedly told Carr that the actor “did a fantastic job.”

That’s not all. Carr claims he ghost of CBS anchorman Edward R. Murrow likes Hoffman more than fellow Oscar nominee David Straithairn, who played him in Good Night And Good Luck.
