.

The Oscar-winning star of such films as “Gladiator,” “To Die For” and “Walk the Line” told Associated Press (this after, dumping it all on Extra last week) that he’s out and he’s in with music. He said he wants to use the musical aptitude he developed while learning to be Johnny Cash.

Phoenix will last be seen in “Two Lovers” opposite Gwyneth Paltrow.
