We all have known the lengths to which Jared Leto can go to work on his roles. Small or big, he leaves no stone un-turned to get into the skin of whichever role he decides to play. Be it a 2 minute screen time in Fight Club to being Mr Nobody to tick our sub-conscious mind. He is a genuine masterpiece.
To come to his latest stints in the field of method acting as the psychopath joker in Suicide Squad, Leto has spent quite a lot of time being around real psychopaths. Recently he revealed that he has been spending time with psychopaths as well as doctors and psychiatrists to prepare for his role as the ‘Joker’.
To quote him, “I met people that were experts, doctors, psychiatrists that dealt with psychopaths and people who had committed horrendous crimes..I spent some time with those people themselves, people who have been institutionalized.”
Debates about who played the Best Joker have been on the surface of the fans since time immemorial. Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger have made this role a niche according to the way they played with it.
Leto continued, “There has been such great work that we knew we had to go in a different direction”.
The versatile actor knows the level that has been set in front of him by legendary actors like Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. Thus, the team has decided to make his version of the Joker as different from the previous ones to give the audience something new to watch.
And we bet what we watch is going to be really really good..not bad at all 😀
