Director David Ayer has shared the first official image of Leto as the DC villain.
Unless you’ve been living under an entertainment free rock you’ll know that Jared Leto is set to play The Joker in David Ayer’s upcoming Suicide Squad movie. Of course you’ll probably also know that Leto has been undergoing a pretty drastic transformation in recent months in order to become the DC villain. Well prepare to see things taken one step further as the first official image of Leto's Joker has been revealed.
As he was, Jared before going full on Joker
Director David Ayer shared the first official image of Leto in full on Joker garb on Friday, on the 75th anniversary of the character’s first comic book appearance. With his hair cropped and dyed green, the 43 year old cut a pretty menacing figure in the pic, which also showed him sporting silver capped teeth and a variety of tattoos.

Don't worry, Jared Leto is still playing the Joker.
Jared Leto as the Joker - I was into it from the word "go," but now we even have a first look picture to get the online convo going. The actor's look for Suicide Squad calls back to an earlier Joker from the comic book universe.
Where is Jared?
The square hairdo and blurry, 80s-looking filter add a nice arty touch, but the camera Leto is holding seems to call back to one of the character's most iconic covers -The Killing Joke. It's one of the few origin stories for the Joker. The pic was tweeted on Thursday by Suicide Squad director David Ayer, who added the hashtag #whereisjared.

Kim Kardashian makes a dramatic style move - but who else has recently gone blonde?
Kim Kardashian's debuts her latest fashion move, sporting a head of significantly shorter but freshly dyed blonde locks as she spends quality time with her husband Kanye West in France during Paris Fashion Week. It's a style that's been dividing opinion this week.
Kim Kardashian sports a new style
Kim may have shocked us in skin-tight pink Latex back in February, but the reality star hasn't stopped there. Her latest daring venture has been to bleach her much envied brunette hair - as well as chop half of it off. It'll definitely take some getting used to but we think the curvy star has proved she can just about pull off anything; perhaps she was inspired by her famous mermaid Halloween costume (which people are still talking about) from 2012, where her blonde curls drew many eyes on her.
R.I.P. the most luscious locks in Hollywood...
It had to happen one day, but we’re still deeply sadden to report that Jared Leto’s long, shiny, ombré-d locks are unfortunately no more. Against our wishes, the 43 year old actor took a trip to the hairdressers yesterday, in preparation for his upcoming role as The Joker in David Ayer's Suicide Squad movie.
Before the chop, Jared with hair and beard in tact.
Oscar winner Leto was just as well known for his luscious mane as he was for his acting talents, so the loss of his locks has hit fans hard. The handsome actor has sported the long haired look since 2012, though he has previously rocked a shorter style and even had a pink mohican in 2010.
The 43-year-old actor/singer is planning on putting his body through another rigorous transformation, but this time he is trying to pile on the pounds.
Over the years Jared Leto has been known to put his body through extreme transformations for certain movie roles, and he is set to do this again when the Thirty Seconds To Mars singer will portray the Joker in ‘Suicide Squad.’
Leto is trying to put on weight for to play the Joker in 'Suicide Squad'
Back in 2012 Leto lost an alarming 30-40 pounds for his role as Raynon, a HIV-positive trans woman, in ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’ The part earned him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2014, his co-star Matthew McConaughey took home the Best Actor award.

The Grammys are coming! The Grammys are coming!
It’s time to talk about the Grammys – which, of course, would be impossible without talking about Taylor Swift and Sam Smith. The young powerhouses of pop came out on top with two and four nods, respectively. But they had to wait a while to celebrate this year. Instead of the typical primetime concert, the Grammys turned Nomination Day into an actual day-long event this year.
Early on, Sam Smith led the pack with four nods.
Starring Iggy Azalea, Beyonce and Smith himself as presenters and Pharrell Williams and Ed Sheeran as presenters, there was quite a lot of back patting going on. "Very happy for Miley," said Williams, when asked what he thought about the nominations. "Super happy for Beyoncé. A lot of great names. ... Ed. That's big."
Jared Leto, Will Smith and Tom Hardy will star in the forthcoming DC Comics / Warner Bros. supervillain movie.
In possibly controversial news, the casting for DC Comics’ supervillain team-up movie Suicide Squad has been announced, and the biggest news of all is that Jared Leto has been selected to portray the Joker, and starring roles have also been given to Will Smith and Tom Hardy.
Jared Leto will play the Joker in 2016's 'Suicide Squad'. Can he be as awesome as Heath Ledger?
Late on Tuesday, Warner Bros. confirmed the highly anticipated casting. Smith will play Deadshot, and Hardy will play the group’s leader Rick Flagg. The rest of the Suicide Squad will be Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress.

As we await Jared Leto’s ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ follow up, some say a role as The Joker could be on the horizon.
Despite winning an Oscar earlier this year for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, 2014 has been a pretty quite year for Jared Leto, the actor. The 42 year old has instead been spending time working on his other career, as frontman for band 30 Seconds to Mars. But could Leto have finally found his next big screen role as The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie?
The Hollywood Reporter writes that sources have confirmed to them that Leto may be under consideration for the Joker role in the upcoming supervillain movie. However they also note a deal could be in the very early stages and that calls to both Warner Bros. and Leto’s reps went unreturned.

Jimmy Fallon has been up to his usual mischievous tricks as presenter of the nightly comedy and news show.
Actor and singer Jared Leto was treated to a surprise beard trim when he made an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ on Wednesday. Host Jimmy Fallon, in his trademark style, offered the 42 year old star some advice.

The Academy-Award winner recently revealed why he still hasn't watched the award-winning biographical drama film.
Even though six months have passed since Jared Leto won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Rayon, an HIV-positive transgender woman, in 'Dallas Buyers Club,' he still hasn't seen the film!
Jared Leto [L] and Matthew McConaughey [R] in 'Dallas Buyers Club'
The confession came when the 42 year-old actor/singer took part in a Times Talks interview on Thursday (Aug 14th) with New York Times contributor Logan Hill, and when a clip from the award-winning flick was played, Leto covered his ears.
How is Marvel's latest project shaping up?
For Marvel Dr. Strange isn’t that strange - the studio has put the thrusters behind more obscure franchises in the past. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be easy. Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us from Evil, Sinister) is apparently directing a screenplay written by Thomas Dean Donnelly, but as is the case with any Marvel property, the rumors are still flying around.
Will Jared Leto be Marvel's Dr. Strange?
Just for a bit of background: Dr. Strange, born of the 1960s, is a surgeon that suffers a life-changing car accident and eventually heads to the Himalayas. Whilst there, he gains psychic powers and saves the day, protecting the Earth against magical and mystical threats. It’s a bit like Batman, but Strange actually has a non-earthly power to call upon.
Neil Patrick Harris looked as natural in drag at the Tony Awards as he does in a suit and tie. He's not the only actor who's donned drag for a role and never looked back.
So, Neil Patrick Harris basically won the Tonys 2014 (the whole thing) with his performance of "Sugar Daddy" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Harris has been making headlines as the lead in the Broadway show since he joined the cast earlier this year. He’s not the first actor to don drag for a role, these other actors have all dressed up like the fairer sex for performances in the past.

Does Jared Leto have what it takes to play the 'Sorcerer Supreme'?
Marvel’s upcoming Dr Strange movie finally seems to be taking shape with the announcement of Sinister’s Scott Derrickson as director. But while there’s been no casting announcements yet, the rumour doing the rounds on the internet is that Oscar winner Jared Leto is being lined up to play the Sorcerer Supreme. But could Leto really be the right man to bring Dr Strange to life?
Could Jared Leto make a convincing Dr Strange?
Jared Leto is hot right now and we mean this purely in reference to his acting career. Thanks to Dallas Buyers Club, the actor, who moonlights as a rock star (or vice versa), can now add’ Academy Award winner’ to his resume. But even before he took home the Oscar gold, Leto still had a impressive track record thanks to movies like Requiem for a Dream. There’s no doubt that Leto has tremendous versatility as an actor and he cold probably turn his hand to just about anything. But acting prowess aside, could we really see him make a convincing turn as Steven Strange?

Leto's return to acting might feature a turn as Snowden
Jared Leto has expressed an interest in a more consistent return to acting; he’s just been waiting for the right role to come along. Well it looks like that role has arrived in the form of the Oliver Stone Edward Snowden biopic, in which Leto is currently odds on favourite to star as the lead.
Jared Leto is favorite for the role of Edward Snowden
The 30 Seconds to Mars lead singer received huge praise for his turn as Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club, leading to an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. And despite some calls for transgender actor to have been cast instead of Leto, the general consensus was that he did a marvellous job of portraying the fictional HIV/Aids victim.
Jared Leto loves Instagram, Instagram loves Jared Leto, we've just seen enough pics to last a lifetime.
If you’re in need of a celebrity to follow on Instagram then why not choose Jared Leto? The Oscar winning actor who also happens to be a rock star has been entertaining us with his snaps for a while now, but they just keep on getting better. Jared appears to be a bit of an Instagram addict and he often uploads multiple snaps a day. While there was just too many to choose form, here’s ten of our recent favourites that got us laughing, swooning or just scratching our heads.

It's time to get to know Dimphy Janse because the model might just have bagged Oscar winner Jared Leto.
Sorry ladies, but it appears that Jared Leto could be off the market, as Star magazine is reporting that the Oscar winner is dating model Dimphy Janse. Dimphy who? Indeed. Well, not to worry as we’ve rounded up whatever info we could find on the emerging model, because girls, it's important to get know your competition.
Jared Leto, might not be single anymore...
Hailing from the Netherlands Dimphy is just 23 years old, which makes her 19 years younger than youthful looking Jared, but hey no one can probably tell. Her Storm Model’s portfolio lists her as 5 foot 9 (and a half) with blue eyes and long dark blonde hair. If you want to build a clearer mental picture, she also wears size five shoes and has a 24 inch waist.

The 42 year-old won an Academy-Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as transgender drug addict Rayon in 'Dallas Buyers Club.'
Since then, the 42 year-old entertainer admits to getting a lot more opportunities in Hollywood, but the coveted gold statue itself doesn't mean that much to him.
Leto's Oscar is full of scratches and bumps after he freely hands it around at parties for everyone to have a hold, and as a result the award is now a "filthy mess."

Most of us know that Zooey Deschanel and Jared Leto are pretty musical, but there's a bunch of other celebs who also have musical skills on the side!
Those celebs are a talented bunch, sometimes even more than they let on! Lots of them are also skilled musicians on top their acting and directing day jobs. We bet you’ll never believe that some of these famous people have the time to play an instrument on top of all the other projects they’re always involved with.

The falling, the self-deprecation, the goofiness: could it all be to win more column inches?
Jared Leto has caused shock after he suggested that the typically goofy personality of actress Jennifer Lawrence might all be an act designed to create publicity and warm the public to her. The 42 year-old Dallas Buyers Club star was asked by Access Hollywood what he thought of Jennifer's Oscars stumble (her second to date) to which he replied "You know, I'm starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act."
Jared Leto Has Implied That Jennifer Lawrence's Fall Was Fake.
He described the scene where she gingerly climbed the stage to present the award for Best Actor at the ceremony last Sunday whilst Ellen DeGeneres mimed behind her back: "Why are you laughing? What, is this funny? I'm still watching you!" said Lawrence as she tried not to trip for a third time. Jared explained: "But what [J-Law] didn't know was that Ellen was on the side.making, pantomiming 'don't fall, don't fall!' - and my mom and brother are all cracking up."
Oscar, 30 Seconds to Mars Tour, then joining Linkin Park and AFI. Leto's fingers are in many pies, it's true
Jared Leto isn’t like most Oscar winners. He’s been criticised for his role as the transgender character Rayon, and not 48 hours after his Best Supporting Actor win for the role, it has been announced that he and his band – 30 Seconds to Mars – are off on a massive tour with Linkin Park.
30 Seconds to Mars are off on tour with Linkin Park
He and his 16-year-old rock band, will perform in San Diego Sept. 16 at Sleep Train Amphitheatre. They have middle-billing between the headlining Linkin Park and AFI to kick off the Carnivore Tour. Explaining the title of the tour, Linkin Park's Sinoda said: "Carnivores is a metaphor that is meant to convey an appetite for something visceral and substantive, and I feel that’s exactly the hunger this tour will feed."
Jared Leto also revealed that his Oscar is safe-guarded "by some vegan butter and a bag of popcorn," in his kitchen.
It was only days ago that Jared Leto was honored at the 86th annual Academy-Awards.
The 43 year-old was prized with the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as an HIV-positive transgender woman, Rayon, in 'Dallas Buyers Club'.
Although the golden statue is said to be a priceless accolade, Leto may have to empty his wallet for repair costs, as he has already admitted to damaging it.

Detractors argue that a transgender actor should have been given the role.
Jared Leto’s Oscar win may have seemed unlikely a few years ago, while the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman was taking a break from the big screen and concentrating on his music, but he was very much the favorite to pick up Best Suuporting Actor for his role as Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club on Oscars night – an award that has attracted criticism from certain transgender groups.
Jared Leto and Matthew Mcconaughey as Rayon and Ron Woodruff
While DBC is celebrated for its overarching message, celebrated by its peers in a cinematic context and saw Matthew McConaughey pick up Best Actor for his portrayal of Ron Woodruff, Leto’s role, many feel, could have been played by a transgender actor.
Jared Leto admitted to not yet watching 'Dallas Buyers Club' due to playing "such an intense role."
Jared Leto may have won an Oscar for his role in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’, but he still hasn’t even seen the film.
The 43 year-old actor/singer was prized with Best Supporting Actor at Sunday’s award ceremony for his portrayal of Rayon, an HIV-positive transgender woman.
Not only hasn’t Leto watched the film as of yet, but he plans on not seeing it anytime in the distant future.

This year's Oscars were the most 'selfied' yet as the stars shared their pics with the world.
One way to view the Academy Awards last night was through the eyes of the stars themselves, as many of them took to Instagram and Twitter to keep us up to date with their Oscar night happenings.
Some stars started their picture taking before they even got to the ceremony, like Joseph Gordon-Levitt who tweeted a pic of himself literally on his way to the awards, taking a selfie in his limousine. Joseph later shared a picture of himself and co-presenter Emma Watson having fun pulling some faces backstage.

The Ellen DeGeneres Oscars Selfie: did Jennifer Lawrence have the best pose or was it Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt...or Kevin Spacey?
Pretty much everyone has seen the Ellen Degeneres Oscars selfie by now; the celeb-packed pic that sent the Twittersphere into melt-down and quickly became the most retweeted image of all time. The Oscars host somehow gathered the cream of the awards' red carpet for last night's impromptu snap, which has become the evening's most shared and talked about image.
Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie Has Become The Most-Shared Image On Twitter.

Gone are the pouts, poses and glowers of the red carpet pap-snap and instead we have a bunch of gorgeous and joyous actors ready to party at the year's biggest movie awards.
Jared Leto has won the Oscar for best supporting actor.
Jared Leto is now Oscar winner Jared Leto after claiming the Academy Award for best supporting actor. Leto has always been considered the favorite for the Oscar, given his stunning turn as Rayon alongside Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club.

However, Leto had faced stiff competition in the form of Michael Fassbender and Barkhad Abdi, though it was the 42-year-old actor-turned-musician-turned-actor who deservedly took home the prize.

The coolest date you can have on Oscar night is none other that your mum. Well done, Jared Leto, Michael Fassbender and Bradley Cooper.
You might think that Hollywood’s leading men would have their choice of Oscar dates, from actresses to supermodels - well, they do. So why then are Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto and Michael Fassbender choosing to have none other than their mum on their arm for the big night?
Jared Leto and mother Constance
You can't help but be endeared to Jared Leto’s mum after viewing her reaction to the news that she’d be accompanying her son down the Oscar’s red carpet on Sunday. But should she really be so surprised? Well not really, considering Leto is following in the footsteps of fellow nominees Michael Fassbender and Bradley Cooper by brining his mum as his date.

He may be Oscar-nominated but Matthew McConaughey wasn't first on the list.
Matthew Mcconaughey may have pulled off the performance of his career in Dallas Buyers Club but the actor apparently had to convince the movie's directors that he was the right guy to take on the role of entrepreneurial AIDS victim Ron Woodroof.
Matthew McConaughey Was Far From First Choice To Play Ron Woodroof.
Looking at the series of cheesy rom-coms that McConaughey has padded out his career with, it's fairly easy to see why director Jean-Marc Vallee was at first sceptical about casting the classically handsome, all-American beefcake actor. "I wasn't sure about Matthew at first," said Vallee to THR. "Mr. The Most Handsome Man With Muscles? Then I met him and found a man who really wanted to change perceptions and have new challenges in his career."
