And here I thought Jared Leto trying to go 'method' for Joker by sending in used and abused condoms and anal beads, was as bad 'n sick 'n twisted as it'd ever get; but nah, turns out actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje had something up his sleeve. Akinnuoye-Agbaje says, “I did a lot of research on cannibalistic habits from back to the Mayans and the Aztecs, right up to modern-day cannibals.”
He says he'd also watch a video of a Japanese cannibal, Issei Sagawa, who killed and ate a Dutch woman. He kept it on his phone so he could play it every day...uh. Can't even, right now. Can't even.
“As sick as it sounds, the moment I start to play that video, I’m in the form of Croc, because it’s really important for this creature to be thirsty for flesh, even when he’s around The Squad.”
Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5th. Check out the trailer below:
The cast of DC's Suicide Squad keeps sending out weird updates via social media. The newest batch of Twitter and Instagram images are focused on villainess, Harley Quinn's tattoo parlor, where she (Margot Robbie) and co-stars Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman and director, David Ayer got matching tattoos.
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.'
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..).
For the most part, critics came out swingin with guns blazin' after seeing Suicide Squad in early screenings. Some of the reviews were so harsh, we've seen particularly inspired DC fans band together to try and set in motion a petition to straight up squash Rotten Tomatoes.
Well, at least Warner Bros. enjoyed it, right?
“It bested anything that we could have expected,” Jeff Goldstein, executive vice president over at Warner Bros. told Variety. “The marketing campaign was brilliant and the performances by the cast, starting with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto, were just extraordinary. They’re fun and wicked and fans enjoy it.”
