We’ve all heard about actors getting seriously into their roles, but it sounds like Jared Leto has gone one step further.
Much like how Ryan Reynolds has recently become the embodiment of Deadpool, so too has Jared Leto in regards to his Joker role, although in a much more sinister way.
We all heard about the ‘Gifts’ he sent his fellow cast members, but it sounds like this wasn’t the only way he stayed in character:
“Look, you know, it was different, it was fun. The group first wasn’t sure because the AD’s had to call him ‘Mr. J’ to get him to come to the set [laughs],’ Producer Charles Roven revealed in an interview with Collider. “And he did in many ways isolate himself from the rest of the group, but that’s really what his character was, the purpose of his character in many ways, other than when he was with Harley or trying to get Harley. It was very entertaining, it was fuel for a lot of good sport and a lot of laughs, and his isolation bonded the squad, and we wanted the squad bonded.”
It sounds like it would have been pretty intense to be on set with him, but if this is how he acts off set, one can only imagine the performance we’ll be seeing when the film is released next August.
