    Glad to hear the Coen Bros have two great actors so far. And I did not know Phoenix signed on to the Untitled Spike Jonze Project, now I'm more interested.

    Her career has taken off faster than anyone I can remember, primarily because she's a fantastic actress, but equally as much because of her choices in material. Add the Coen Brothers to that list.
