Jared Leto gifted live rat, bullets to co-stars

Los Angeles, June 28 (IANS) Jared Leto’s “Suicide Squad” co-stars have revealed that the actor gifted them live rats and bullets to make up for his absence from the film’s initial shooting.

Leto will be seen as the Joker in the superhero film, which also stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis and Adam Beach.

“He sent (Margot Robbie) a nice love letter with a black box with a rat in it – a live rat. It was beautiful. Then he sent bullets to Will (Smith) with a letter,” cast member Adam Beach told eonline.com.

Leto, 43, also sent them a video.

“Basically, what he said was, ‘Guys, I can’t be there but I want you to know I’m doing my work as hard as you guys,’. The video he showed is in character. It blew our minds away. Then we realised that day, this is real,” Beach added.

The film is slated to release on August 5, 2016.
