Photos: Jared Leto Shows Off His Green-Haired Joker Look
Just a few days ago, Jared Leto Snapchatted a dark and blurry selfie of himself sporting the Joker's signature green 'do for his role in upcoming film Suicide Squad. But over the weekend, the actor was spotted off set in Toronto, Canada—and we got a better peek at his new sinister look.
He sported a floppy camouflage hat to cover his green locks on Saturday, but obviously, it wasn't too hard to spot him out as his vibrant hair was peeking out from under his hat. Plus, that awesome "Holy Guacamole" sweatshirt of his probably would attract some attention as well.
It looks like Leto couldn't get enough of his new Joker look either as he showed someone at a restaurant an image of himself on his phone in character. It was very meta.

Suicide Squad is an adaptation from the DC Comics graphic novels of the same name. According to IMDB, the plot of the film is: "A secret government agency recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency."
Leto's not the only big-name actor in Suicide Squad. There's also Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. The movie is slated to hit theaters on August 5, 2016.
