It hasn’t even begun filming yet, and already Suicide Squad is one of our favorite movies, mostly because of the incredible cast. Along with previously announced stars Jared Leto and Will Smith, it’s just been announced that Friday Night Lights hottie Jay Hernandez will also be joining the comic book adaptation. We’ve got all the casting scoop!
‘Suicide Squad’: Jay Hernandez Joining Cast?
Admit it: you miss Friday Night Lights desperately.
It’s okay– so do we! Well, our 2009-loving hearts are in luck because one of the series’ stars, Jay, has secured himself a new gig, and it’s a good one!
Negotiations for Jay’s part in Suicide Squad are still in the early phases, however, multiple sources working on the film have confirmed his involvement, according to The Wrap.
Though specifics on which part he’ll play have not been revealed, it’s likely that he’ll play an inmate serving time in the same cell block as The Joker. However, we can also make some guesses as to his role, judging by the other actors and the parts they’ll be playing.
Jared is said to be taking on the all important role of The Joker, while Will is playing Deadshot.
The incredible cast doesn’t stop there, though.
What do you think of the cast so far? Are you excited to see Jay on the big screen?
