Open Post: Hosted By Jared Leto As WeWork Founder Adam Neumann in The Trailer For Apple TV+’s “WeCrashed”
I got a trial subscription to Apple TV+ and as far as I could tell, the only requirement for content is that it has to have big-name stars doing the absolute most, or be Ted Lasso. I base this assessment on having watched exactly 1.25 episodes of The Morning Show and about a minute and a half of that off-putting shit The Shrink Next Door with Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd. So why not also have a movie starring Jared Leto doing an impression of James Franco doing an impression of Tommy Wiseau to play the role of Israeli WeWork founder Adam Neumann. In the trailer for WeCrashed, co-starring Anne Hathaway as his wife Rebekah Neumann, Jared sounds like he put his spicy Italian meatball accent from House of Gucci in a blender, and voila, now it’s hummus!
According to Entertainment Weekly:
Big dreams, god complexes, and a magical romance are at the heart of the first teaser for Apple TV+’s upcoming drama series, WeCrashed.
In the clip, below, viewers are introduced to WeWork cofounder Adam Neumann (Jared Leto), his wife Rebekah (Anne Hathaway), and Neumann’s dream of “what tomorrow looks like” — namely the wide-open, light-filled spaces that the flexible shared workspace company provides — and the unraveling of it all. “You know you’re not God, right?” fellow WeWork co-founder Miguel McKelvey (Kyle Marvin) asks Neumann at the end of the teaser. “You have to admit, I do look a little bit like him,” Leto’s Neumann ominously responds.
The series is inspired by actual events — and the love story at the center of it all. WeWork grew from a single coworking space into a global brand worth $47 billion in under a decade. Then, in less than a year, its value plummeted, and Neumann stepped down as CEO amid scathing reports alleging mistreatment of employees and questionable financial decisions.
Here’s Jared as a narcissistic megalomaniac with a messiah complex sporting lanky Loki locks and beady black shark eyes. Which is quite a stretch considering Jared’s natural eye color is actually blue!
