Jarod Leto has been making the rounds with his performance in Dallas Buyers Club. He has had a wide variety of roles, like playing a drug addict in Requiem for a Dream, an underground fighter in Fight Club, and Alexander The Great’s lover in Alexander.

Now according to The Wrap, Leto, who was rumored to play Doctor Strange, is targeted by Warner Bros. to portray the Joker in the upcoming The Suicide Squad film directed by David Ayer (Fury).

The Suicide Squad is a team made up of DC villains who are forced to work together by the government. Aside from the comics, the team made an appearance on The CW’s Arrow and on the DC original animated film, Batman: Assault on Arkham. It’s also said that Margot Robbie is set to play Harley Quinn, with Will Smith and Tom Hardy still being rumored.

If Leto does become the Joker, do you think he’ll be a good fit?

I can see the two (Leto and Robbie) looking great together as a comic book couple. Robbie was seen giving Leto an award during the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on January 16, 2014 in Santa Monica, California.
