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.

When will it ever end Jared Leto? When? In a recent interview Leto had with Rolling Stone, he shed some (unwanted) light on his process for trying to get into character for Joker, and ended it all with a ridiculous idea for how Joker would handle an interview.



Before continuing, let's just say it's almost as absurd as Killer Croc's (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) routine when he watched straight up cannibalism videos to try and hone in on his character's mentality...



Naturally, Leto’s process got real weird, real quick. He started watching footage of actual violent crimes on YouTube, until he had to outright stop himself.

“The Joker is incredibly comfortable with acts of violence,” says Leto. “I was watching real violence, consuming that. There’s a lot you can learn from seeing it. Not every act of violence is committed with frenzy, either. I remember learning that. People can be calm. They’ve made their choice and go and do something, and it’s not in a frenzy.” His eyes have gone cold. “It’s methodical and sometimes even hypnotic and deliberate.”And with what was apparently no prompting, Leto finished up his interview saying “If the Joker did this interview, he’d definitely castrate you and make you eat your own testicles. Just for fun. That’s if he liked you.”

Apparently hanging out with psychopaths and sending his coworkers anal beads and used condoms wasn't enough for Leto. In the video above, Leto says the following about his various 'laughing practice' bouts with the public:

“I worked on the laugh walking around the streets of New York and Toronto, and I kinda would walk around the streets and see what laugh would get under people’s skin. You know when you hear someone laugh at a restaurant? It’s a little jarring. I tried them out. And I kind of got to a place where I would laugh and people are always turning around like, ‘Who is this creepy guy behind me?’ “

No chill, bro.

New High Quality Photos for Suicide Squad Have Been Released, and Jared Leto Looks So Much Like 52 Joker

I don't care what the haters say here, but Jared Leto and those Hot Topic-esque tats are starting to grow on me, after all. Leto's really looking like 52 Joker, and I'm thrilled to see him square off toe to toe with Baffleck in the future!

Jared Leto put up something of a fit recently because he claims he feels he was tricked into being a part of the Suicide Squad movie...what do you make of all that noise?

Apparently giving co-stars gifts like used condoms, anal beads, dead rats and pigs, wasn't enough for Leto; just yesterday the crazy fool gave Jimmy Fallon a live snake. See for yourself:



Dude, Jared Leto, you have no chill. During a recent interview with Fox 5 DC Leto said the following when asked about why he gave his poor Suicide Squad co-stars all those crazy gifts:

“The Joker loves to play games, he loves to manipulate, and that was part of the reason to do that. When you do give a gift to someone, even in real life, you think about, ‘What do I get them?,’ you think about who that person is to you, what would they like? So that immediately started to be really good homework for me. What do I give Deadshot? What’s my relationship with Deadshot? I gave Deadshot a briefcase full of bullets. It was kind of a message, it was kind of a threat, it was kind of a reminder. I wrote every character a note — a poem. What it did was that it started me on a journey into thinking what these people are, and it was a lot of fun.” (transcribed by Cinema Blend)

Here's the full 20-minute interview, if you've got that kind of time lying around; and if you want to hear Jared Leto straight up utter, 'human meat is always a great gift.'

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:

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..).

A Suicide Squad source was recently quoted saying the following in regards to the potentail for Suicide Squad spin-off movies:

“They’re going to do a sequel for sure, and the recently announced Harley Quinn spinoff with Margot Robbie has got everyone excited, but their plans don’t end there. The studio is feeling very confident in the property. They think it’s going to be a really big hit and they think audiences are going to fall in love with these characters.

The Joker is a definite possibility for a spinoff, and Jared [Leto] seems up for it. I’ve heard more than a few talks of giving some of the other Task Force X members their own spinoffs. And like the Harley Quinn one, these films would open the door for a ton of new DC characters to show up. They’re also really hot on Jai Courtney’s character Boomerang right now. Nothing’s set in stone yet, but you’re definitely going to be seeing a lot more of these guys in the years to come.”
