Jared Leto Cleans Up Nicely For ‘Suicide Squad’

By March 2, 2015

Say “goodbye” to the ‘Buddy Christ‘ look Jared Leto’s been cultivating for the last few years – including last year’s Oscars, where he took home the statue for “Best Supporting Actor” – because it’s Joker time.

On Sunday, Suicide Squad director David Ayer tweeted a cryptic-yet-exciting message to his followers:

And because I wasn’t following Ayer (at the time), I missed that hint but figured something was up when Jared Leto (who I DO follow) posted this weirdo snapchat shot to HIS Twitter:

As we ALL knew it was going to happen sooner or later, I guessed by the Joker-like quality of the pic that Senor Leto was going to go from the lumbersexual-rocker look to an older version of the Jordan Catalano that some of us fell in love with — even though he was a bastard to Angela — but this wasn’t confirmed.

Until today.

This morning, Ayer then posted an image of a ponytail about to meet it’s doom via a pair of scissors with the question:

And the final result, posted at 11am PST, reveals a beautifully clean shaven, short-haired Leto (pre-Jokerization).

Been a while since we’ve seen him without the trademark long hair and beard but don’t get used to it because you know he’s ‘going green’ soon enough! HAHAHA…


Admittedly, I wasn’t quite on board with Leto taking on the role but man oh man, I’m certainly warming up to it. With Nicholson and Ledger’s legacy, Leto’s got some pretty huge shoes to fill but I’m looking forward to seeing what he brings. How about you?
