Jared Leto is no joke as The Joker, talks to Good Morning America about character
“This character has been written about, acted, interpreted, re-interpreted, re-imagined, for 75 years”, Jared Leto said on Good Morning America recently, “So to be asked to take the baton was quite an honor, and a responsibility”. Jared went on to say that he ‘dove pretty deep’ in order to achieve his version of The Joker, one that fans are already saying is one of the very best. One of the ways that Leto committed (pun intended) to his Joker, was to never break character on set, something you might call method character acting on meth.
While fans are definitely also already down with Leto as The Joker, he himself also expressed his admiration for playing the part. “When you play a part like this, you become a detective,” Leto expressed on Good Morning America (aka GMA), ” … a journalist, and I have to say, it was the role of a lifetime. It was the most fun I think I’ve ever had”.
