Jared Leto Is Playing Hugh Hefner
Jared Leto Is Playing Hugh Hefner

 

If your skin hasn’t crawled in a while, Brett Ratner is making a Hugh Hefner movie. We already know what that means. If you thought it would be unrealistic, congrats, Jared Leto is playing Hefner.

Jared Leto will soon be donning the iconic silk pajamas and smoking jacket of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, who died Sept. 27 at age 91, for an upcoming biopic from Brett Ratner. “Jared is an old friend,” says Ratner, who will direct the film. “When he heard I got the rights to Hef’s story, he told me, ‘I want to play him. I want to understand him.’ And I really believe Jared can do it. He’s one of the great actors of today.”

So, this movie will basically be just titties in slow mo and Jared Leto in a robe walking around the slo mo titties. My over under on the Rotten Tomatoes score is 34%. Fans of Batman v Superman should love it.

Margot Robbie & Jared Leto Are Doing A Harley Quinn & Joker Movie
Margot Robbie & Jared Leto Are Doing A Harley Quinn & Joker Movie

 

So two days, and two movies about The Joker have been announced. He’s also reportedly gonna be in Gotham City Sirens and Suicide Squad 2. Tomorrow George Lucas will announce a Joker Christmas special. So, Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and Jared Leto (The Joker) are doing movie. That’s a thing that’s happening, I guess. Thanks, world.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, directors and executive producers of the hit NBC drama This Is Us and who also wrote and helmed the 2011 film Crazy, Stupid, Love, are entering the DC cinematic universe at Warner Bros. The duo are in final negotiations to pen and helm an untitled movie project centering on Batman villains Joker and Harley Quinn. Insiders say that the plan is for this feature to go after the studio makes a sequel to Suicide Squad. The latter is on the development fast-track and out to directors. But the Joker and Harley Quinn movie is also moving fast as Warners has to contend with actors’ holding agreements, say sources.

Here was the pitch.

The film is described as a “criminal love story,” according to one source, featuring the two murdering maniacs who are cornerstones in the Batman mythos. One insider offered this: “an insane and twisted love story. When Harry Met Sally on benzedrine.”

If anything gets me excited about a Harley Quinn/Joker movie is a reference to a Billy Crystal 90s rom-com. Anyway, Margot Robbie was the best part of Suicide Squad, and if Jared Leto had Heath Ledger’s exact same part in The Dark Knight, we might be calling him the best Joker ever. And if the Olsen twins didn’t kill Heath Ledger he might have been in Suicide Squad and been horrible. Or maybe not. My apologies. I just care too much.

Jared Leto Feels “Tricked” By ‘Suicide Squad’
Jared Leto Feels “Tricked” By ‘Suicide Squad’


Suicide Squad sucks. Accept it and move on. Some of the criticism stems from the fact that the theatrical release of the movie made Jared Leto‘s The Joker pretty much an unnecessary character and a needed lie for the trailer. He’s also been getting shit for going method, but during a Q&A session at “Camp Mars“, Leto 

“He was very honest about the film this weekend; his disappointment in what he’s learned of the theatrical cut (he’s still not seen the film); feeling sort of tricked into being apart of something that had been pitched to him very differently; thinking it would’ve been more artistic than what it became; feeling overwhelmed by the hate regarding the look and choices… In one breath he would say he too “needs more joker”, but in the next it seems very unclear if he wants any part of the process going forward. However it was clear he feels very fragile still about everything that had happened just two weeks before – and had spent a lot of hours trying to come to terms with his work and compartmentalize just so he can move forward onto the next film project.”

Now, if you’ve seen Suicide Squad, then you know Jared Leto probably didn’t agree to do a two hour music video with forcibly inserted jokes about people who survive helicopter crashes for no reason. What he said this weekend is pretty much consistent with what he’s been saying all along, and if you feel like Googling, there’s a long list of descriptions of scenes available online that were cut from the movie. Which sucks. Because the movie could have been great. Trump will fix when elected.

Jared Leto Is Super Fashionable

It’s hard to keep up with the fashion weeks, but Jared Leto is at the one in Milan where apparently all the models have gross acne because that’s a thing now. Jared Leto doesn’t have acne, but he did wear whatever the hell all this was. Looks like he lettered in puffy unicorn sticker scrapbooking.  He can also probably bang any chick at any time at any location, so I guess he can wear shit like this. You can’t. Especially that floral shirt and penny loafers you have on right now. And are your young ass jeans rolled up? Take off the fedora. Jesus Christ, man. Look at yourself. You’re a craft beer that’s been pressed on vinyl.

Jared Leto Is Suing TMZ Over Taylor Swift
Jared Leto Is Suing TMZ Over Taylor Swift


Jared Leto + Taylor Swift + TMZ + a shady videographer  + $2,000 + a lawsuit + a pretentious press statement.  Stay tuned for Serial Season 3.

Jared Leto, the Oscar-winning actor and frontman of the band Thirty Seconds to Mars, has lodged a notable new copyright lawsuit against TMZ  and parent company Warner Bros. Entertainment, alleging that the gossip site published a sensational video after being warned that it was stolen. The video in question features Leto and an engineer at a home studio critiquing various songs off of Taylor Swift’s “1989” album. Leto is shown as admiring Swift’s work, even going so far as exclaiming (perhaps jokingly) that he wanted to “steal” one of her finer moments of production work. But towards the end of the video, Leto becomes indifferent. “I mean, f— her,” he says. “I don’t give a f— about her.”

Same. Also, Leto a complaint filed in California federal court after the guy who shot the video, walked it over to TMZ when they promised him $2,000. Here’s Leto’s full statement:

“Last Sunday, I was alerted that TMZ had acquired personal and private video footage of me in my home and that they were planning to leak it on their site. My team notified TMZ immediately that I fully owned the footage and that their source had absolutely no rights to sell it. They chose to post it anyway. Let’s be clear. This was stolen footage. This was an invasion of privacy. And it was both legally and morally wrong. Regardless of who we are, we should all be able to talk freely in the privacy of our own homes without the fear that our unfiltered thoughts or actions will get broadcast to the world. We have the right to privacy and security and when we don’t have protections in place to safeguard those things, we lose the freedom to speak loudly and clearly – right or wrong – about anything and everything we choose to. I have chosen to file this lawsuit not because I want to, but in hopes it will encourage more people to stop trafficking in stolen goods, to follow proper legal procedure and so that it may motivate additional consideration for the harm these acts can create, especially when the only intention is to simply further the bottom line for the companies and corporations that commit these acts.”

Wow. Interesting points. Mmm hmm. Really? Intriguing. Yeah, anyway. Anybody listen to the first episode of Serial Season 2 yet? Bowe Bergdahl is kind of a dick, no?

Here’s Jared Leto in Full ‘Suicide Squad’ Joker Costume
Here’s Jared Leto in Full ‘Suicide Squad’ Joker Costume


Empire Magazine just revealed Jared Leto in full Joker costume for Suicide Squad, and he kinda looks like a vampire nightclub promoter who didn’t have any clean pants. Whatever. If Jared Leto has ever given a bad performance, I’ve yet to see it, so I’ll withhold any judgment until then. “Until then” obviously being when it comes on Netflix.


 Margot Robbie is in this too, right? Ok, cool so I can use these pictures then:

Here’s The Joker Giving Harley Quinn The Pimp Hand In ‘Suicide Squad’

In what I assume is a leaked video from the set of Suicide Squad, here’s Jared Leto as The Joker (without the tattoos) and Margot Robbie (not wearing a Harley Quinn costume). Take it away, Uproxx.

Harley is standing in front of Joker’s car. She screams “Get out of the car” then mouths the word p*ssy. And she makes that look adorable. Joker revs the engine, then gets out. They argue briefly and another guy approaches to break it up. She shoots him then points the gun at Joker. He does the old “put his forehead against the barrel, daring her to shoot him” thing before grabbing the gun, pointing it at his own head, and slapping her, so there’s your answer if you wondered if they’d tone down the fact Joker beats up Harley and messes with her head.

Man, can’t wait to read the think piece about this video on Salon and Jezebel. Should be a good time, guys.

So This Is Jared Leto Now
So This Is Jared Leto Now

 

So we’ve already seen what Jared Leto’s face is gonna look like as The Joker. Here’s the rest of him. Apparently The Joker’s daily routine consists of eating six whole chickens and a tanker truck full of protein shakes. Oh, and murder. Also murder. Because The Joker is insane. I mean, that’s kinda redundant since he takes post-workout selfies.

The Joker Is On Snapchat
The Joker Is On Snapchat

 

Jared Leto show his Joker look for Suicide Squad on Snapchat, because every criminal mastermind I know uses Snapchat. I’m not sure if this is the final look or him just doing his own makeup in a mirror since that’s probably something Jared Leto does in his spare time. Looks like his eyebrows won’t be on fleek in this movie, so it appears The Joker in this version is Puerto Rican.

Here’s Jared Leto As The Joker In Suicide Squad
Here’s Jared Leto As The Joker In Suicide Squad

 

David Ayer has been a cock tease on Twitter about Suicide Squad up until recently, but yesterday he dropped the first look of Jared Leto as The Joker. Comic book nerds (you know who you are, Mike) will recognize the image from the cover of the iconic graphic novel The Killing Joke (via SuperHeroHype):

Following the Suicide Squad cast image from last night, director David Ayer has debuted another photo on his Twitter account showing the previously-absent Jared Leto. Joker fans will instantly recognize the photo as an homage to the cover of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s classic story “The Killing Joke.” Check it out and compare it with the actual cover image below. Suicide Squad will also star Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Plastique, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Ike Barinholtz, and Adam Beach. The film will hit theaters on August 5, 2016.

We’re not gonna do the Heath Ledger vs. Jared Leto thing are we, right? Let’s don’t. Because we didn’t the whole Jack Nicholson vs. Heath Ledger thing back in whatever year that was. That worked out well. Also, I want to point out that he’s playing a character that’s drawn with with colored pencils.
