Jared Leto says he was ‘tricked’ into Joker role

August 17th, 2016 by Marc Comments



Jared Leto has said he feels he was “tricked” into taking on the role of Joker in recent box office smash Suicide Squad.

The actor, who’s also the lead singer of Thirty Seconds to Mars, was speaking during a Q&A session at Camp Mars. He is said to have felt “sort of tricked into being a part of something that had been pitched to him very differently”.

According to the report, Leto also said he thought it would be a more artistic production and was “overwhelmed by all the hate regarding the look and choices.” He also confirmed he hasn’t yet seen the film.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
