Jared Leto Talks Playing The Joker in "Suicide Squad"

Jared Leto Talks Playing The Joker in "Suicide Squad"Submit Comment
In a new interview with Billboard, Jared Leto, who lost a lot of weight for "Dallas Buyers Club," revealed that director David Ayer wants him to gain weight to play The Joker in the upcoming "Suicide Squad" comic book film.

"I'm trying to gain a lot of weight," he told the magazine while eating a vegan taco. "It means I have to eat every couple of hours -- and I'm terrible at eating a lot."

Leto went on to explain what drew him to the role. "The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character," he said. "That's what graphic novels and comic books are becoming. [The Joker is] this beautiful disaster of a character -- what a big challenge."

"Suicide Squad" is set to hit theaters on August 5th, 2016.

Well that's great. Now what does he have to say about playing a loser in real life?

Just kidding. Sort of.

"wants him to gain weight to play The Joker in the upcoming "Suicide Squad" comic book film"

The Joker is usually pretty thin. It's one of his rather expected physical characteristics. So I'm not sure what Ayer is talking about. Perhaps...familiarize yourself with the source material you're about to rape before squatting in the director's chair?

Uh, the chance to actually eat and pay rent for a change?

Think Leto is the one to pull it off, but I think he is brave to take on the challenge !!
He's got some pretty big shoes to fill after Heath Ledger's performance !!
Audience will definately compare the two
