Suicide Squad Shows Off Jared Leto's Joker


Jared Leto Joker

Jared Leto’s Joker lands the cover of Empire magazine's newest issue, giving us fans the first look at his Suicide Squad character in full costume.

In a new interview with Empire Magazine, Jared Leto reveals the process he went through to play the Joker in Suicide Squad, and about the physical and mental toll of playing the Clown Prince of Crime.

“There was definitely a period of … detachment, I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn’t imagine doing it another way. It was fun, playing those psychological games. But at the same time, it was very painful, like giving birth out of my dick hole.”

Leto even pranked his castmates, including Jim Parrack, who plays his henchman, Jonny Frost.

“I was just thinking that the Joker would probably just say, ‘Fuck you,’ and hang up,”

Leto also revealed his approach to taking on the Joker.

“I always get the sense that the Joker may be much older than people think,” he said. “It’s something different. If you don’t break rules, you’re not going to strike new ground. I think I’ll be cooling down for the rest of my life.”
