Jared Leto Spent More Time Playing The Joker On Set Than In The Movie, Suicide Squad
However, one of the actors was severely dedicated to his role in comparison to the remaining squad and that is none other than Jared Leto as the joker. At first, it was cute to watch Leto's costars describe his method acting. He sent the cast a dead pig at the very first table read. OK. That's fine. But then the depth of Leto's antics progressed to absolute absurdity. He refused to be called his real name on set. Instead, cast and crew had to address him as Mistah J. He also terrorised his cast mates with sexual paraphernalia, live rats, and used condoms. In fact, Method Actor Jared Leto spent more time playing The Joker on set than he did in the movie itself.
In fact his co star Will Smith said he never actually met Jared leto. Back in October, Smith dropped by Beats 1 Radio Show to discuss his new album, but when the topic turned to Suicide Squad, he revealed that he had "never actually met Jared Leto" because Method Actor Jared Leto was that committed to being The Joker.
"We worked together for six months and we've never exchanged a word outside of 'action!' and 'cut!'" Smith said.
"We've never said 'hello,' we've never said 'good day.' I've only ever spoken to him as Dead shot and him as the Joker. I literally have not met him yet... Not a single word exchanged off-camera. He was all in on the Joker."
