Joaquin Phoenix Grows Sideburns and Goes Vintage for 'Inherent Vice'


Joaquin Phoenix


The 'Walk the Line' actor is cast as Doc Sportello in Paul Thomas Anderson's starry film, which also features Reese Witherspoon, Sean Penn and Owen Wilson.

A first look at Joaquin Phoenix in upcoming movie from director Paul Thomas Anderson, "Inherent Vice", has surfaced online. In the 1960s-set adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's 2009 novel, the 38-year-old actor stars as Larry "Doc" Sportello, and goes very retro with long sideburns, curly hair and faded denim trousers to bring the character to life.

Besides Phoenix, other photos taken from the Los Angeles set on June 3 give a look at Maya Rudolph, who is also included in the cast. The very pregnant actress of "Bridesmaids", who is the life partner of the film's helmer, is seen with a green scrubs dress and knee-high white stockings for her role.

The film revolves around a pot-smoking detective named Larry "Doc" Sportello who gets wrapped up in a number of mysteries in 1969 Los Angeles, while the Manson Family trial growls in the background.

Several other high-profile celebs have already come aboard the project. Among them are Reese Witherspoon, who once again join forces with his on-screen love interest in "Walk the Line" Phoenix, Sean Penn, Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro.

In addition to directing, Anderson co-produces and writes "Inherent Vice" for Warner Bros. Pictures.
