Hopefully, you're not tired of hearing about how Jared Leto is SO METHOD because if you watch this video you're about to hear it again.  Viola Davis, the first African-American woman to win an Emmy for outstanding actress in a drama series, talks about her experiences in Hollywood and what it was like to win that Emmy. 

Then around the 1:54 mark she talks about her role in Suicide Squad, and by that we mean, she talks about Jared Leto's method acting.  She details what it was like to be in the cast when he sent someone by with a dead pig and a video introducing himself. 

The response to his new Joker has been mixed, some people are very excited. Others...not so much.

Either way, we'll all have to wait until August 5th to find out if this movie is all it's cracked up to be.

This rather shocking revelation follows Justice League #42 when Batman who has gained possession of the Mobius Chair (basically a badass time-traveling chair that can answer all one might ever have to ask) tests the chair's ability to actually answer any question by asking who killed his parents, and then after hearing the correct answer, asking what the Joker's name is.



Not until this week's Justice League #50 did we finally figure out what Batman heard back from the Mobius Chair. After the events of the Darkseid War, Hal Jordan goes on to ask Batman what exactly the Mobius Chair said in reply to his question. 



And this is where it gets real weird, real quick: the chair didn't provide Batman one name, it tricky skullduggerous know 'n see all piece of high-tech furniture provided Batman three. THREE. Like wait what? A bold move by Geoff Johns, for sure.

We'll be curious to see how this pans out, as Joker's notorious for his inability to 'play well with others', but were the three Jokers ever to manage a coordinated attack against the dark night, it's probably fair to say that sh*t would hit the fan in one way or another...

Jared Leto pulled off some fu*ked up shit while shooting Suicide Squad. From straight petrifying Margot Robbie, to making his director David Ayer hire a therapist, to sending his co-stars a live, squirming rat with a side of dead hog--the dude really let himself go. 

Well, it sounds like Leto went full Joker mode and maybe took it too far this time. And I quote:

"Leto just told me he also sent everyone… used condoms and anal beads!" Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays Killer Croc, said he received some “sticky Playboy magazines” from Leto as well. Uhh.

And the most recent Suicide Squad Blitz trailer if you need a quick refresh on just how far down the dark 'n twisted, demented, impeccably depraved rabbit's hole Leto's gone:

Jared Leto keeps churning out the ridiculousness. Recently Leto was reported as being so unhappy with Suicide Squad that he hasn't bothered to see the movie yet. Even more recently, Leto went full on rage mode at Camp Mars to further vent his frustration. While no video of the instance has surfaced yet, someone in attendance provided the following summary of what Leto said:

"He was very honest about the film this weekend; his disappointment in what he’s learned of the theatrical cut (he’s still not seen the film); feeling sort of tricked into being a part of something that had been pitched to him very differently; thinking it would’ve been more artistic than what it became; feeling overwhelmed by the hate regarding the look and choices."

And here's what Leto had to say about the studio trying to shut him down on one of his favorite activities, rock climbing:

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Leto disclosed that he spent actual time with psychopaths and their respective therapists in psych wards while gathering inspiration for his role. We quote, from the interview:

EW: What, specifically, did you do [to prepare for the role]?

JL: There are a lot of things. It’s probably better to not get into it but to the Joker, violence is a symphony. This is someone who gets an extreme reward from the act of violence and manipulation. Those are the songs he sings and he is very in tune with what makes people tick. I did meet with people that were experts, doctors, psychiatrists that dealt with psychopaths and people who had committed horrendous crimes, and then I spent some time with those people themselves, people who have been institutionalized for great periods of time. I guess when you take on a role, any role, you become part detective, part writer, and for me that’s my favorite time of the entire process, the discovering, the uncovering, and the building of a character. Yeah, it’s really fun.

EW: So what did you do to create this guy? What did you go and do? Who did this guy become to you?

JL: He became a real person. I don’t know if person is the right word. I think the Joker lives in between reality and another plane. Kind of a shaman in a way. It’s a very intoxicating role to take on. You have permission to break rules and to challenge yourself and anyone around you in a really unique way.

I first started at the beginning, educating myself, researching, reading as much as I could, going back to the source material. And then at a certain point, I knew I had to stop doing that. Because the Joker has been redefined, reinvented many times before. I think the fun thing about it is when people have done it in the past, there is some spirit of the Joker essence that they keep, but they either build upon something or tear something down and start again at the beginning. For me, I knew once I had gone through the process of educating myself, I had to throw everything away and start from the beginning and really build this from the ground up. It was a transformative process. There was a physical transformation. There was a physical conditioning.

If only, right? There's method acting, and then there's that...Jared Leto, what the f**k are you doing dude? In a recent interview, Viola Davis had the following to say of her psychotic co-star:

“It was a little worrisome,” Davis said. “It made you a little bit nervous and I’m pretty tough. You know I got into a few fights when I was growing up…but it scared me a little bit.Before that I was only introduced to The Joker…and I almost had my pepper spray out. You know, ‘You remember that bullet you sent me?'” Davis said.

Soo, wait, can we hope for some sort of Viola Davis kicking the living sh*t out the Joker in those DVD deleted scenes extras, or what? This is just the latest development in an already extensive series of outrageous 'method-acting' Joker gifts (used condoms and anal beads for instance..).

Question is, how will this madman go about approaching this role with his outlandish method acting ways? Writer-Director Josh Boone took to Twitter to get fans of the original film fired up with the following pic portraying Leto's possible involvement.

Both Mark Ruffalo and Jared Leto wanted to enjoy New York City Comic Con as plebs rather than geek royalty, so they went incognito in masks to join the festivities. Were you at NYCC? Did you see either of these fellas? Quickly, check your photos for evidence!


That Joker cosplayer is probably having a heart attack right now.
