Jared Leto Is Gaining Weight For THE JOKER For SUICIDE SQUAD


Playing the Joker onscreen means stepping into some big shoes left by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. So how is Jared Leto preparing for his role as the iconic Batman villain in Suicide Squad?

When Billboard caught up with him, it was by getting bigger! "I'm trying to gain a lot of weight. It means I have to eat every couple of hours -- and I'm terrible at eating a lot," (Case in point: Leto was eating vegan tacos during the interview, which are hardly the fattiest food on the market.)

As for what appealed to him about the project (especially when it comes with so much pressure), he added: "The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character -- that's what graphic novels and comic books are becoming, right? [He's] this beautiful disaster of a character -- what a big challenge." That's certainly an interesting way to look at the villain. The rest of the Suicide Squad cast includes Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevigne as Enchantress, and Joel Kinnaman(TBC) as Rick Flagg.
