“I’m Still Here” — the teaser trailer, the myth, the legend

If you follow movies at all, I don’t think there’ll be any way to avoid Casey Affleck‘s film about his friend and brother-in-law, Joaquin Phoenix. For starters, there’s the whole “is it live or is it Memorex” question of whether the film is a documentary about an actor going off his rocker or a mockumentary in which the actor endures humiliations and tortures that he’d have to be crazy to undergo if he were not, in fact, going off his rocker. And then there are the alleged scandals surrounding the making of the film, as if intended to create another circle of weirdness around this thing.

Okay, then, just watch the damn trailer

So, who’s the older gent with the deep voice talking there? Any ideas? He reminds me slightly of spoken word artists Joe Frank and Ken Nordine who are both old enough now that they’re voice could be that scratchy, but I don’t think he’s either one. Also, how long before this film plays on a double with Todd Haynes’  Bob Dylan anti-biopic,  “I’m Not There”? Everyone’s going to mix them up anyway.
