You might expect to see BOB DYLAN on any number of TV shows. But on Pawn Stars? According to Rolling Stone, one of the stars of the show, CHUMLEE, scoured the grounds of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas looking for the folk-rock icon to sign a vinyl copy of his album, Self-Portrait. Dylan, who looked surprised, signed the album, and on camera as well.
While some may question the authenticity of the scene, Chumlee swears that none of it was planned for cameras. He says that he saw Dylan coming off of a tour bus and "ran up to him" adding that Dylan "was shocked, but he signed the album for me."
Joaquin Phoenix Guests on Late Show, Apologizes to Letterman for Previous Appearance
JOAQUIN PHOENIX dropped by CBS' Late Show on Wednesday night -- this time, without the beard, sunglasses, and sour personality he brought with him the last time he visited DAVID LETTERMAN. We all know by now that Phoenix was simply playing his aspiring rapper character for his current film I'm Still Here when he was a guest on the Late Show in February of 2009, but Letterman still had some fun at his expense. Turns out that was the whole idea. Said Phoenix, "I was looking for a beat down, and I got one...I want to thank you for that.”
Letterman and Phoenix both denied that the late-night host was in on the act during their previous conversation. Phoenix said, "I think that you’ve interviewed many, many people and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person, so -- but I apologize. I didn’t -- I hope I didn’t offend you in any way." Letterman said he was not offended, and that he actually had fun conducting that interview, saying "It was like batting practice."
Phoenix pretended to retire from acting and become a rapper for his documentary I'm Still Here, now in select theaters. The film's director, CASEY AFFLECK, only recently confirmed rumors that the entire thing was a put-on.
