Jared Leto looks like our biggest nightmare in Suicide Squad PacificCoastNews

Ah!! Jared Leto is straight up scary looking in Suicide Squad. The actor, who plays the Joker in the upcoming flick alongside Margot Robbie, was snapped on set in full Clown Prince of Crime costume in Toronto, Canada, on Wednesday, June 10.

With a terrifyingly pale complexion, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman was unrecognizable with red-rimmed eyes and a bright red lip, which barely covered his character’s rotten, yellow teeth. Even Leto’s nails were made to look bloodstained as he attempted to cover his ensemble with a black hooded cloak while exiting his trailer.

The Dallas Buyers Club Oscar winner has undergone a complete transformation to take on the DC comic book character. After shaving his eyebrows, Leto cut off his signature ombre hair and dyed it bright neon green and seriously beefed up his gym routine.

“Don’t make me punish you,” the actor captioned a selfie on Instagram of his bulging biceps last month.

The flick also stars Will Smith, Viola Davis, and Cara Delevingne and is expected in theaters August 2016.
