Dr. Strange Rumors: Prometheus Scribe Is On Board And Jared Leto Is Still Starring


Jared Leto Tom Hardy Benedict Cumberbatch

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.

Jared LetoWill 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.

Could Jared Leto Be The 'Dr Strange' Marvel Are Looking For?


Jared Leto

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?

Jared LetoCould 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?

Who Is Jared Leto's Rumored Model Girlfriend Dimphy Janse?


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.

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.

Jared Leto's 'Dallas Buyers Club' Oscar Trophy Is A "Filthy Mess"


Jared Leto

Jared Leto won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at the 86th annual Academy-Awards earlier this year 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."

Jared Leto Suggests Jennifer Lawrence Is Fake: Did He Say What We're All Thinking?


Jared Leto Jennifer Lawrence

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 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."

Jared Leto Matthew Mcconaughey

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.

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.

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.

Matthew McConaughey Was Far From First Choice In 'Dallas Buyers Club' Casting [Trailer]

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."

The Evolution Of Jared Leto: Teen Idol, Rockstar, Oscar Nominee


Jared Leto

Actor, rockstar and perhaps future Oscar winner, Jared Leto has gone from early 90s teen idol status to one of Hollywood's most dedicated, critically acclaimed actors. The now 41 year old star has had a career evolution over the past 20 years with more than a few surprises along the way.

Jared Leto star of Dallas Buyers ClubJared Leto star of Dallas Buyers Club could take home the Oscar next month

Leto’s breakthrough role was opposite Claire Danes in the 1994 TV show ‘My So-Called Life’. Although the series was short lived, running for only one season it was critically acclaimed and would later gain a cult following. He landed his first big screen role in 1995 ensemble cast drama’ How to Make an American Quilt’. After ‘My So-Called Life’ ended Leto was inevitably painted as a teen heartthrob, and although his film choices weren't always obvious, such as 1996’s 'High Kings ‘ and ‘Switchback’ in 1997, he was stil yet to land a major film role.

Dallas Buyers Club Review


Excellent

In telling this remarkable true story, director Jean-Marc Vallee (The Young Victoria) and his gifted cast keep the characters and events so grounded that we can't help but get caught up in their story. The film never asks for our sympathy, but it earns it over and over again as it explores a disgraceful period in American history when businesses and the government essentially condemned millions to death by withholding proper treatment for HIV and Aids.

It begins in 1985, when homophobic womaniser Ron Woodroof (McConaughey) is told that he has just a month to live. Refusing to believe that he has the same disease that has just killed Rock Hudson, he ignores his doctors (Garner and O'Hare) to find his own supply of AZT, which makes him even more ill. So he heads to Mexico to find a range of treatment the US government has refused to approve, and he imports them himself, creating a members' club to subvert the law. This requires that he set his deep-seated prejudice aside so he can work with the transgendered Rayon (Leto). But a government lawyer (O'Neill) is determined to shut him down.

Yes, it's deeply infuriating to watch the American system try so hard to stop Woodruff from saving lives. Government officials continually outlaw his effective treatments so they can pawn off the toxic, over-priced AZT instead. So Woodruff travels the world in search of new medicine, and his business of course takes off. Vallee cleverly cuts through the 1980s period details to reveal Woodruff's earthy tenacity and an overpowering sense of humanity.

Leto has recently appeared in Dallas Buyers' Club as Rayon, a transgender woman. The hecklers, when Leto asked what they meant, stated Leto didn't "deserve to play a trans woman." Leto was, understandably, perplexed and asked the woman why. He said, as PEOPLE reports, "Because I'm a man, I don't deserve to play that part. So you want to hold a role against someone who happened to be gay or lesbian, they can't play a straight part?"

How Homophobic Were Jared Leto And Michael Douglas' Golden Globes Acceptance Speeches? [Video]


Jared Leto Michael Douglas

Jared Leto and Michael Douglas each won a Golden Globe award last night for their stand-out performances in very different films. Both actors' characters share the similarity of being part of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) community with Leto's Rayon a transgender woman suffering with AIDS in Dallas Buyers Club and Douglas' gay Liberace lifted from real life in Behind The Candelabra.

Michael Douglas
Michael Douglas Raised Some Eyebrows With An Insensitive Acceptance Speech.

With such high profile awards for what would have traditionally been controversial roles, the actors' wins mark a great leap forward for the portrayal of LGBT characters in movies and a move to eradicate homophobia and stereotyping in cinema. Whilst these positives cannot be denied, it has been noted in the wake of the initial glow and glamour of the awards that not every aspect of Leto and Douglas' win is cause for celebration.

But it’s the 44-year-old’s performance as Ron Woodruff that has the critic’s heads in a spin.

Woodruff was a cowboy unfamiliar with the quieter side of life. Always living as he pleased, his stormy existence came into serious doubt when he was given 30 days to live after being diagnosed with the AIDs virus - a death sentence in the 80s, when the film is set.

Matthew Mcconaughey has been the butt of many a joke over the course of his career, with his acting ability often brought into question by critics and jokers alike thanks to his largely uninspired choice of roles. His latest film, however, is a major departure from his usual rom-com venture and has even had people crying out for him to be awarded an Oscar, or at least get a nomination for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.

McConaughey is exceptional in the film

McConaughey stars as Ron Woodroof in the true story of the former Dallas Cowboys star who is stricken with the still-largely unknown and misunderstood HIV virus in 1986.
