The role of Joker had been immortalized by Heath Ledger, who passed away soon after he portrayed it on screen for Dark Knight. Since him, Jared Leto is going to be the first one to play the role again on screen.
Talking about how Jared Leto is doing his role, actor Ike Barinholtz talks about Jared Leto having dyed his hair and transformed his physical body with tattoos and piercing to prepare for the role. Suicide Squad will see Joker falling in love with Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie).
Barinholtz told The Howard Stern Show that once while they were all rehearsing, Jared Leto makes the actor who is set to play his lieutenant hand over a present to Margot Robbie. The moment she opened the box, a black rat came out of it and everyone was shocked.
Barinholtz said that initially he was a little skeptical about Jared Leto’s way of working in Suicide Squad, but he later realized that the actor had to get into the mode of the Joker way before he actually got called for the scene since the switch isn’t an easy one. He had to be in the zone from beforehand to be perfectly ready for the shot.
Suicide Squad will be worth the watch with Margot Robbie and Jared Leto paired together for the film.
