Now that Jared Leto has already shown how good he can look as the Joker in “Suicide Squad,” why not we talk about the approach that he used to literally scare the life out of people. Reports suggest that his cast members were so scared of his portrayal that his version of the Joker has been called as the most disturbing one.
According to Christian Post, Jared Leto, in order to nail his performance as the Joker, wanted to do something that would be completely different from the previous versions of the character. The actor has used method acting in order to better understand the character and bring it live on-screen.
From the look to the laugh, Jared did everything to make sure that his performance as the Joker comes out as the most genuine one. His co-star in “Suicide Squad,” Will Smith, who plays the role of Deadshot, confessed to the fact that he only interacted with the Joker and has never really talked to Jared Leto even when they were shooting the movie.
Margot Robbie who is playing the role of Harley Quinn too had a rather unusual experience working with Jared. She was all praises for the actor but with him presenting her a love letter along with a live rat really makes us wonder about the mind set Jared was in when he gave that gift. Will Smith too received bullets in a black box along with a letter from his co-star. Touted to be the most disturbing portrayal there is, his fellow actors were genuinely scared of him and made the director of the movie David Ayer call Jared’s Joker as real crazy.
Movie Pilot questioned whether Jared has gone too far with his portrayal in the movie. According to the media outlet, Jared did his research really well and kept on putting little references of the Joker here and there, however, he did take things a bit far when he gifted the entire cast a dead pig.
If you think this is too much, he also sent a video of himself dressed as the Joker along with it. His co-star Adam Beach, who will be seen as Slipknot, mentioned that it blew everyone’s minds away. Given all that we’ve been hearing about Jared’s portrayal as the Joker, “Suicide Squad” would surely worth the wait.
