http://www.vanityfair.com/features/outtakes/041109feouJohnny Cash, the Man in Black, is the subject of Twentieth Century Fox's upcoming biopic Walk the Line, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon as Cash and his wife, June Carter. At age 23, Cash already possessed a social acuteness and emotional honesty drawn, in large part, from his days toiling in the cotton fields of Arkansas, working in an auto factory, and serving in the air force—all of which led him to compose one of his first songs, "Folsom Prison Blues," in 1953. Cash, whose career eventually spanned almost five decades, died last year at age 71. Here, we present an exclusive look at Phoenix, Witherspoon, and the cast of James Mangold's big-screen feature, due out April 2005.

I was not even aware such a movie was being made. I wonder how much of his life this movie will span. Well, I think Phoenix looks like a good young Cash. Shame on those of you who knew about this movie and did not post about it earlier! Shame!
