Phoenix Walked His Line in Prison

January 04, 2006 04:24:45 GMT

Followed the trail of his character in "Walk the Line", Johnny Cash who once held his concert at Folsom State Prison, Joaquin Phoenix visited the spot Tuesday to perform several acoustic songs with his co-star, Shooter Jennings, while also accompanied fifty-plus inmates to watch the acclaimed biopic feature. Dressed head to toe in Cash's trademark black suit, Phoenix humbly asked for apology due to his "rusty" performance as he had not played since the movie's completion. "I don't know if you've noticed but I've messed up like 40 times," he said. "I'm all over the place."

The event itself was organized by Prison Fellowship, a group that runs Bible studies and other educational programs in prisons, with the consideration that the movie's message would be good for inmates because Cash's "whole life was a message of redemption." "The movie is about how he screwed it up really bad, and he turned to Jesus Christ to help him change," said Prison Fellowship spokesman Joe Avila, explaining the reason behind the selection.

According to Michigan State Police Sergeant Mario Gonzalez, Trice continued to drive after the shot before exited the freeway in the suburb of Southfield and was taken to receive a treatment from Providence Hospital later that night. "He's doing fair, but he's naturally quite upset," Delois Askew, Trice's grandmother, told the Detroit News Sunday. "It's a puzzle why anyone would want to do this. Was it just a random incident, or did someone go after him? That's what we're trying to figure out."
