For Suicide Squad, Jared Leto went all “method” to play the Joker, basically ignoring any kind of HR sensitivity training or sense of decency to send his cast mates things like a dead pig, a live rat, sticky Playboys and used condoms. While covering this ongoing headache of headlines, we speculated Leto might try this nonsense with Margot Robbie and Will Smith, but there’s no way he’d dare mess with the great Viola Davis, right? Right.
At the Tribeca Film Festival, the Emmy-winning How To Get Away With Murder star was promoting her film Custody when she was asked about Suicide Squad shenanigans. Did she get any weird presents from Leto? Hard no. Davis, who’ll play squad handler Amanda Waller in the super villain ensemble flick, told E: (via Vulture)
“I did not receive any personally or else I would have got my husband who was called the ‘Headache Ball’ back in the day when he played football. I would have [told Julius Tennon], ‘Take care of The Joker.’”
Iiiiiiiinteresting. So Leto can tell us he was so super in character that he couldn’t help but disrespect the boundaries of his co-stars. But when it came to Davis, dude knew better than to act the fool.
