Iím sure I wasnít the only one who was shocked to see a fat Jared Leto. There he was, one of the greatest looking men on Earth, Cammy Dís ex, the mascara-wearing lead of the prog-rock band 30 Seconds to Marsóand he was fat. Fortunately, Jared didnít tarnish his gazelle-like physique on a diet of 99 cent double cheeseburgers from McDonaldís. No, this was Jared the thespian, taking his shot at the same kind of glory achieved by other notorious weight-gainers like Robert DeNiro. And it was for his role as Marc David Chapman, the man who some may argue turned John Lennon into a god. The film is CHAPTER 27 and BELOW thereís a small version of the filmís one-sheet. Lindsay Lohan costars as Chapmanís friend Jude, although I doubt he had a friend who looked like her in reality. The film screened at Sundance to a warm reception, but I havenít been able to find a release date yet. But when there is, look for it to be limited.

Extra Tidbit: The actor playing Lennon in the film is named Mark Lindsay Chapman and he's turned down playing Lennon in the past because of the similarities to his killer's name.

Aww, look ma, I've ruffled the feathers of a 30 Seconds to Mars fan. How cute.

I own the first album, and still think they're miles from being anything remotely prog-rock. Your angst-ridden post even proves my point, "They have SOME prog-rock elements." The operative word being "some". The fact that the newest album features even less of those sorts of flourishes further cements my earlier points.

Besides, did I even speak poorly of the band? No. Even back then, with all of the

Besides, did I even speak poorly of the band? No. Even back then, with all of the synthesizers and talk of how Mary loves astronauts, they weren't a definitive prog-rock band. Now? Absolutely no way you could label them as being such.

So, please, spare me any future hissy-fits.

BahWeep

When I read that Barna labeled 30 Sec. a prog-rock band I knew some dipshit would throw a hissy fit over it. I love how people argue over the most retarded shit on this site, and yes I realize by doing this I'm also bitching about stupid things. The fact of the matter is they have some prog rock elements to them and if Bah would listen to their first album instead of basing everything off of the singles then he cold hear this. Basically, fuck you Bahweep for writing such a stupid comment that

I'm A Noob...

I saw Requiem for a Dream earlier today for the first time. It's a really good film, and the actors were amazing. I hate Leto for his looks, and his celebrity status due to all the girls who are obsessed with him.
But as an actor, Leto has immense talent, and I respect him for that.
He seems to be on par with Christian Bale - going to the extreme to literally fit the role.
I'm sure his performance in Chapter 27 is amazing; but I'm just not interested enough to catch it in theaters.

Name

Freaky on the name front. And I think this looks good, though the poster's just alright.

Fatty Jared ate Haagen Dazs and Olive Oil

Release date is slated for this month,though it will be with little fanfare, I am sure.

It has released in several countries and has had a straight to DVD release in three countries already.

The film has interested me for some time both thematically and because of Leto's adherence to The Method, and the controversy surrounding its distribution annoyed the piss out of me. However, I agree with BahWeep: the poster doesn't do much for me at all.

Peace Arch dropped the ball on this

Peace Arch dropped the ball on this film long ago, imo.

Prog-rock? Seriously?


30 Seconds to Mars is to prog-rock what James Blunt is to industrial.

Prog-rock my ass.

Anyway, the poster doesn't do anything for me.
