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:
In a recent interview, Suicide Squad Director, David Ayer talked a bit about the outlandish rehearsal regimen he encouraged his cast adopt; and it's honestly sounding like just the kind of crazy you'd need, to get your actors in the right mindset for this kind of film:
“It wasn’t a normal rehearsal, we’d talk about their lives, their history, and really got them to open up as people to each other. I also had them fight. I had them fight each other. You learn a lot about who a person really is when you punch them in the face. It gets rid of a lot of the actor stuff.”
As far as Joker's Hot Topic-esque mural of tattoos, Ayer said the following:
“A lot of it has to do with creating a character with some kind of history and footprint in our world, and not have this sacrosanct being outside of our continuum, our reality. If a guy like him really existed today, where would he come from?“ The tattoos tell a very specific story, and eventually people will decipher them and understand what’s going on, but obviously they’re contentious, any time you do something new it’s contentious. There’s very specific stories and Easter eggs in those tattoos. And even his teeth, there’s an entire story behind that which is absolutely canon. It’s putting his history on his body. This Joker is a little more working class, who I believe could live in our world.”
Alriighty then. And what would a proper closing be to this bit on the Suicide Squad be without the most recent Jared Leto Joker antics be without this little gem that just came to light about how Leto would treat his costume designers?:
“When we first met him, he said — look girls, I’m going to be pretty intense, I’m going to be the Joker when I come for fittings. Sometimes he tried to terrify us, but we’re strong women. He was growling at us, and we’d play back.”
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:
All this week Suicide Squad has been filming all over Toronto with actress Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and a couple of stuntmen filming an epic car chase with The Joker in a Lamborghini and Batman's signature ride tearing up the streets of Canada.
Check out some fan videos and stills from the action below, but beware: here there by Spoilers!
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..).
