Jared has big shoes to fill as the new Joker in the upcoming flick, ‘Suicide Squad!’ However, the actor is ‘confident’ that his version of the famous villain will be ‘the best’ yet, and HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY tell you why he thinks so.
Jared Leto is taking his hot new role as the Joker in Suicide Squad very seriously! Knowing it might be his “most difficult” role ever, he of course has a plan to really make this a character “fans will love”. He already cut his long locks for the role, and HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY how else he’s gearing up to make his Joker a winning role!
Jared Leto: The Joker In ‘Suicide Squad’ Will Be The Best One Yet
“Jared wants to make sure his Joker is not only something the fans will love, but he doesn’t want to step on the toes of Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“He wants to make the character completely his own,” our source continues. “He knows that this role may be his most difficult ever, but he is confident that he will make his version of the Joker the best. This Joker will be more cerebral and comedic than what we have seen before, nobody should expect a copycat version. It’s going to be awesome!”
Wow — we really can’t wait! It’s great that he’s not channeling previous Jokers like Jack or Heath, and is instead working on his own original take of the famous villain. Judging from Jared’s comedic side, we bet he’ll bring out the laughs without being too over the top.

Jared posted on Instagram: “I miss my beard already.” We miss it too, Jared, we really do.
