Jared Leto is taking method acting to bizarrely creepier heights as the Joker in the coming Suicide Squad. Usually with big shoots like this, things are shot separately so characters in one scene may not see the other during film shoots. So as a friendly reminder to the cast of Suicide Squad, leto felt it a nice gesture to send them all gifts. Margot Robbie aka Harley Quinn got flowers and a letter… with a live rat. Will Smith got bullets with a dead hog. You know, normal stuff.
Check out Adam Beach, who is playing Slipknot in Suicide Squad, go into detail in the video below:
And no one finds this the least bit disturbing? Just me? Okay then.
David Ayer is directing Suicide Squad which is set to star Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Jared Leto as The Joker.
Jesse Eisenberg is also expected to reprise his upcoming role as Lex Luthor, while Scott Eastwood is set to appear in a small role that is rumoured to be Wonder Woman’s love interest.
Suicide Squad will land in cinemas August 5th 2016
“Method acting… keeping in character on set could show utter dedication to one’s art form, but honestly how far is too far? Especially when you are playing the most anarchistic character in the history of comics? Or is it all harmless fun? Let us know what you think in the comment section.”
