Jared Leto now also a part of the Blade Runner 2 cast

jared leto, 30 seconds to mars

It wouldn't appear that Jared Leto has been "tricked" into joining the cast of BLADE RUNNER 2. By all accounts, he has chosen to sign onto the sequel of his own volition. 

Leto will be a part of Denis Villeneuve's follow-up to Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi original in a role that remains under wraps, much like every other aspect of the film. What I can tell is that he probably managed to negotiate rock climbing into his contract this time around with Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. 

The 30 SECONDS FROM MARS rocker is another cog in the ensemble of Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright and Ana de Armas that Villeneuve has assembled. With any luck, his scenes won't be drastically cut this time around, although it should be interesting to see how he approaches his method acting for this particular picture. Will he have a replicant made of himself to actually perform in his place while the movie is in production and he perhaps takes an extended vacation or maybe even takes the band on tour? Or does he have something else in mind?

Plus, how long before we hear of turmoil on the set when he sends Harrison Ford something he's not too fond of and there's a throwdown between the two? 

Oh, man... This is going to be interesting. 

BLADE RUNNER 2 (or whatever they wind up calling it) is scheduled to open on October 6, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: The average distance between Earth and Mars is 225 million km, which takes longer than 30 seconds to travel.

He's a decent actor for the most part. Can't say I especially cared for his take on The Joker, but I think with the right director he's got plenty of potential.

Excited to see who he will play. He rarely takes roles, so I am surprised he took on another with a new 30STM album coming out.
And responding to a comment below, he is a douche. I have met him a few times and can attest to it, but I just can't stop being a fan. It all goes back to MSCL.

Film just keeps getting better and better. Looking forward to seeing Leto in this and what kind of role he'll play. And I'm sure alot more fans will appreciate his portrayal of the Joker when Affleck uses him for his own solo Batman film. He was just fine in Suicide Squad and its sucks that the guy is getting such a backlash from it.

So he's not so mad with WB after all... rumors about him leaving the DC universe are not to believe I think.

Shut up!

Leto is a method actor who got into character but was edited to the point of being a nonessential plot point. Does that sound like his fault? No. Does it sound like he was tricked into being a part of something memorable? Yes. He's only sent gifts for this role, nothing prior.

Now, regarding this news. I'm glad to see another amazing actor joining the cast of my most anticipated movie of next year.

No, Billy, i think you hit the nail on the head. he'll actually have a replicant made of himself, because that's what his character would do obviously. Actually….yeah, maybe he'll play a scientist or something. you may be on to something...
