Why not talk about the sinister and iconic character that is the Joker, famously portrayed by actors including Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger and now Academy-Award winning actor (plus musician) Jared Leto!
Recently, Empire Magazine released one of its colorful covers of Leto’s Joker. Until now, we’ve only seen a snippet of the Joker in the “Suicide Squad” trailer that was released during the summer.
Why so serious? There’s definitely nothing funny about this joker as he strikes a pose with his cane and glares strikingly at you.
Leto also gave an interview for the magazine detailing his transformation:
“There was definitely a period of detachment… I took a pretty deep dive.”
But he made sure to let his fans know that playing the villain was fun.
“It was fun, playing those psychological games. But at the same time, it was very painful, like giving birth out of my prick hole.”
Leto underwent an amazing transformation as a transgender woman with HIV in 2013 in the film “Dallas Buyers Club,” which got him the Oscar.
“Suicide Squad” hits theaters in August 2016! Check out the first trailer if you haven’t already.
