Jared Leto discusses Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker

30 Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto will star in the forthcoming movie 'Suicide Squad' as The Joker and he has revealed that he has very big shoes to fill

The singer and actor told Rolling Stone magazine that the late Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker in 'The Dark Knight' is simply inimitable and he is in awe of how he brought that role to life: 

"Heath did an impeccable, perfect performance as the Joker," the 44-year-old actor said. "It's one of the best performances ever in cinema. I had met Heath before. I didn't know him well, but he was a beautiful person."

Leto, meanwhile, recently admitted to Entertainment Weekly that playing The Joker means that "you’re kind of walking upon hallowed ground": "It deserves the very best that you can do. It takes over your life and that’s what I needed to do for myself.”
