Flip and leanrn more about Jared Leto and his Joker Laugh…
The next to add to the crackle is the insanity level for the Joker in this year’s Suicide Squad. Leto’s acting has been the topic of heated debate throughout production, but there’s seemingly method to the madness.
The Dallas Buyers Club Oscar-winner reveals his creative process to CNBC and, in particular, how he settled on perfecting the Joker’s laugh.
Jared Leto reveals:
“I worked on the laugh like walking around the streets of New York and Toronto. I kinda walked around the streets and see what laugh would kind of get under peoples’ skin. If you hear someone laugh loud at a restaurant it’s a little jarring. I tried them out and I got to a place where I would laugh and people would turn around like, ‘Who is this creepy guy behind me?’”

Held up as the “next step” in the DC Extended Universe, largely because it’s purportedly unlike any superhero/anti-hero feature before it, there’s now an added pressure thrust onto the shoulders of David Ayer’s spinoff in light of the critical drumming directed at Batman V Superman. Those garish trailers have certainly caught our eye, but can Suicide Squad maintain that style all throughout its running time?
David Ayer unleashes Task Force X in all of their unspeakable glory when Suicide Squad lands in theaters on August 5.
What do you think of Jared Leto playing the Joker? Do you think he’ll be better than Heath Ledger’s Joker?
