Jared Leto to Play Hugh Hefner in Biopic

Jared Leto has landed a new role: playing the late Hugh Hefner in an upcoming biopic.

The 91-year-old Playboy icon passed away just last week at the age of 91, and Brett Ratner has a biopic planned.

Jared is an old friend,” Brett, who will direct the film, told THR. “When he heard I got the rights to Hef‘s story, he told me, ‘I want to play him. I want to understand him.’ And I really believe Jared can do it. He’s one of the great actors of today.”

Brett wanted to introduce Jared to Hugh before his death but was unable to due to Hugh’s declining health. “There’s enough footage on Hef out there that Jared will be able to get as much information as he wants,” Brett said.

Jared Leto Explains Why He'll Never Watch 'Dallas Buyers Club'

Jared Leto won an Oscar for his performance in the movie Dallas Buyers Club, but he has never seen the film and doesn’t plan on ever watching it.

“It was on page a beautiful role and I saw the opportunity that was there. It moved me to tears when I read the script and I really fell in love with the character,” the 45-year-old actor said in an interview with Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show.

“I’ve actually never seen the movie,” he added. “It was such a deep and emotional experience and the response was so overwhelmingly positive, I just don’t have any business watching it. I don’t need to look at it like we all would do, knit pick or find some fault or criticism. To let it be what it is, it works for people great, if it didn’t that’s fine.”

Jared is currently promoting his work in the upcoming movie Blade Runner 2049.

Jared Leto Addresses Rumors of Giving Weird Gifts as The Joker on 'Suicide Squad' Set!

Jared Leto is speaking out about his Suicide Squad experience!

The 45-year-old actor, who currently stars in Blade Runner 2049, visited SiriusXM Studios on Wednesday (September 27), where he guested on Entertainment Weekly Radio in New York City.

During the show, which airs Thursday (October 5) at 6 pm EST, Jared addressed rumors that surfaced last year about some unusual items he gifted to the Suicide Squad cast as The Joker.

“There were some thing that were mentioned, like gifts, and the fact that I was giving used condoms to people…which was not true,” Jared explained.

“It was not true. What are you going to do at that moment? It doesn’t matter how loud you shout or hold up a sign with your pants off in Times Square, people are going to go with the story they want to run. It just wasn’t true.”

“I gave wrap gifts to everyone. On set, we were all laughing. People were thrilled to give them. You know, whatever the Joker would give was the idea. I didn’t even really put them together – it was my team and my assistant, and we were having fun with it, and it was really touching.”
