The official news is that Jared Leto has been cast as the Joker in the upcoming film by David Ayer. David Ayer’s Suicide Squad will see the talented actor play the popular role of the Joker. Jared Leto is one of the most eccentric actors in the industry and he is known to be one of the most stylish as well as the worst dressed man as well.
Jared Leto is well known for his eccentricity and it looks like the actor is taking his Joker act a little too seriously. He has started behaving like the Joker in real life and has sent live rates to his co-stars as part of his quasi-method acting.
The role of Joker was immortalized by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. Every actor knows that when they take the role of Joker they have a set of expectations that they have to overcome.
The kind of preparation that Heath Ledger went through to portray the role is no easy task, but when the promos came out, fans got a chance to see what Jared Leto is going to deliver in Suicide Squad and there aren’t complaining.
His Joker side was unleased at a Q&A session at Dubai Music Week. He told a fan wearing a Batman t-shirt that he was very brave to wear that t-shirt for an interactive session with the Joker. He also added that he can’t for the fans to see what he will be up to in his upcoming movie. He added that the public is going to lock him away in a box after they see the film.
Before Jared Leto appeared at the Dubai Music Week there were some strict instructions that were given to the organizers. There weren’t supposed to be any photos, personal questions and absolutely no touching while he was on stage.
When Jared Leto was asked why he doesn’t play the role of a prince, in spite of being so good looking, he replied that he is going to play the role of a king. Jared Leto in his unpredictable way, even invited the fan onstage and allowed her to sit with him in his micro couch for half an hour.
Jared Leto showcased his unmatched wit and ability to connect with the audience in the way he deviated from the Q&A mode and communicated with the fans.
There was a fan who was wearing a t-shirt saying Mrs. Jared Leto and he addressed the awestruck fan and asked her to be careful about what she is asking for, since he can be very demanding.
When he saw another fan wearing a t-shirt with an image of Jared Leto hugging the Burj Khalifa, Leto said that he would love to jump off the tall building. When the fan retorted back saying that he would die if he did so, he added that he would obviously have a parachute attached and wouldn’t jump without it!
