It’s hard to believe that the promising first trailer for Suicide Squaddropped only one year ago because it honestly feels like Warner Bros. has been promoting its Task Force X movie for years. I must have seen at least five dozen teasers, teaser trailers, motion posters (a.k.a. teasers), sneak peeks, first looks, trailer trailers, and theatrical trailers for this movie. The marketing campaign for Suicide Squad has been more aggressive than Killer Croc. But nothing — and I mean NOTHING — has been more obnoxious than hearing about Leto’s escapades as the Clown Prince of Gotham City.
At first, it was cute to watch Leto’s costars describe his ~ method ~ acting. He sent the cast a dead pig at the very first table read. OK. That’s fine. But then the depth of Leto’s antics progressed to absolute absurdity. He refused to be called his real name on set. Instead, cast and crew had to address him as Mistah J. He also terrorized his castmates with anal beads, live rats, and used condoms. In fact, Method Actor Jared Leto spent more time playing The Joker on set than he did in the damn movie.
“At first I thought this was disgusting. But then after that… I was like, I’m not going to kill him,” Robbie told Jimmy Fallon. “So I ended up keeping him as a pet. I ended up getting him like a sweet little playpen, a slide, a hammock, and a leash because I wanted to take him to set and walk him around… But then our landlord at the place I was staying found out.”
Method Actor Jared Leto gave so much to this role and to this cast — and we’re not even talking about the anal beads. In fact, Courtney couldn’t help but to thank Leto for his crazy-ass dedication. “We had the pleasure of working with was an actor who made some extreme choices to get to the place he needed to — and also to get us to the place we needed to for that relationship,” he told MTV News. “And that was incredibly generous.”
