Say it with me now: BETHENNY FRANKEL WAS ROBBED!!!
According to The Wrap, the Dirtbag Hipster Jesus of Bushwick Jared Leto is being considered for the role of The Joker in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, a film based on the comic of the same name about a bunch of convicted DC villains who get hired for high-risk black ops missions by the U.S. government. The Clean-Cut Hipster Jesus of Canada Ryan Gosling was originally rumored to be playing The Joker in Suicide Squad, but for some reason he dropped out.
Also being considered to join the cast are Tom Hardy, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and hickey enthusiast Cara Delevingne (who may or may not play The Joker’s girlfriend Harley Quinn). Jessie Eisenberg, who was cast as Lex Luthor in the Ben Affleck Batman Meets Superman movie (or whatever it’s called) is expected to play Lex Luthor in Suicide Squad too.
I know that when Heath Ledger was first cast as The Joker in The Dark Knight, all the nerds were like “Him? The pretty boy from 10 Things I Hate About You?“. But then he went on to werk mama werk and turn that Joker shit OUT, so who knows if Jared Leto will do the same? Jared is a pretty boy (albeit a bit of a dirt sandwich), and I’m sure he can bring the crazy, but I’m worried about that face. Heath wasn’t afraid to go ugly, but Jared? Jared has a face that was made for makeup. You can shave off the Jesus, but you can’t deny those cheekbones! Trust me, Jared Leto as The Joker is going to look more like Jared Leto as Bianca Del Rio. Actually, that sounds amazing.
