Admittedly, I’m not all that excited for Suicide Squad not because I don’t think it’ll be good, but because I literally know nothing about it, other than the fact that Jared Leto is playing The Joker. Beyond that, it’s all kind of lost on me, but I know it’s a massive thing for a lot of fans, so when the first sneak peak hit San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, people went NUTS. If you weren’t lucky enough to attend and haven’t yet hunted down the clip, here ya go!
A few people have noticed that The Joker seems to be torturing Harley in part of the video, and I don’t know what that means, but I take it that’s not good.
Are you excited for Suicide Squad? Do you think Leto was a good casting decision?
Because I don’t keep up with these things, it was a surprise to me to learn that Jared Leto is playing The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. But he is! It’s all happening! And now we have what appear to be “first look” pictures, not only of Jared on set in some amount of makeup, as seen above, but also a grainy picture of him holding a picture of himself in what might be full makeup, even though you can’t really make it out clearly since this picture was likely taken from like 3 blocks away with an extreme zoom lens.
What do we think, then? Will Jared do it justice? It’s a pretty iconic role, after all.
Jared Leto is some kind of miraculous creature who hasn’t aged since 1994. Could it be plastic surgery? Sure, but somehow I doubt it. He hasn’t changed at all, besides growing his hair long and joining a rock band and… well, no, he hasn’t changed. UNTIL NOW.
Today, Jordan Catalano changed lives everywhere when he decided to cut off his hair and SERIOUSLY return to 1994. Seriously – put the below photo next to one from then and see if you can tell the difference.
Now here’s some news I think we can all get behind. After all, what’s better than two hot people being hot together? (More on that in the next story.) Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto are apparently dating on the low or soon will be, but that rumour’s been floating around for months so I don’t know that it’s all that much of a secret.
“Lupita is totally up for a romance with Jared!” our source tells us. “She and her boyfriend K’naan split months ago and she’s definitely ready for a relationship with the right guy. She likes Jared … problem is that although Jared loves to flirt he doesn’t seem interested in taking it further than that. When they see each other Jared is so incredibly flirty always touching her and telling her how gorgeous she is. He even talks about taking her out but so far he hasn’t followed through.”
Our insider adds: “He says he’ll call, but then weeks and months go by before they see each other at another awards show.”
Oh no! So Jared Leto’s a flake, basically. Not a good sign – though I guess that explains why he’s 43 and still single. Hopefully these two can work something out because I think they’d be GREAT together.
For what it’s worth, they apparently spent the entire Vanity Fair Oscar afterparty together and were super flirty, so who knows what’s going to happen here.
There’s not really much to say about this, other than that I really like this and everyone is so handsome/beautiful and that the Oscars seem like a nightmare that I would never attend because getting dressed up to that level is like, my worst nightmare. The end.
Well this is a curious couple: apparently rumours abound that Lupita Nyong’o, possibly the most beautiful woman ever, and Jared Leto, are dating. I say “curious couple” because I can no longer picture Jared Leto dating anyone. Maybe a cactus. I could see him bringing a small cactus with him to events and calling it his “wife.” He’d show up in a wide-brimmed hat and skinny tux, clutching the cactus in a diamond-studded pot,and say, “Please, no personal questions about my wife.”
The pair, who are up for Best Supporting Actress and Actor, were spotted alone together at a table at the intimate Crosby Street Hotel early Wednesday evening.
They were cozying up between attending numerous Fashion Week shows and events, and according to a witness, “They were huddled at a corner table together looking very close.”
Another source said Nyong’o was staying at the Soho hotel for a night after flying into town from LA for Calvin Klein’s fashion show.
There have been whispers during Hollywood’s awards season about the off-screen chemistry between Leto and Nyong’o. The two have stayed close together at the Golden Globes and other events leading up to the March 2 Oscars. They even appear side-by-side on the cover of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue with Julia Roberts and George Clooney.
Oh wait, they were on a magazine cover together? Case closed, they’re TOTALLY doing it.
