Jared Leto Created a Physical Impairment For His 'Morbius' Role

Jared Leto wears a full lace cape to the special fan screening of his new movie, Morbius, held at Cinemark Playa Vista and XD on Wednesday night (March 30) in Los Angeles.

The 50-year-old actor met up with his co-stars Tyrese Gibson, Adria Arjona, and Al Madrigal, as well as writers Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama.

In a recent interview, it was revealed that Jared didn’t leave his method acting behind for the flick. In fact, he leaned more into it.

Jared went as far as creating a physical impairment to literally walk in the shoes of the Marvel vampire in the superhero origin story, according to IndieWire.

“I don’t want to get too specific because I’d like to keep some of that for myself,” he shared about walking with a cane. “But I leaned in — no pun unintended. I’m a sucker for a pun, but I didn’t mean that. I worked with people who had this specific physical challenge and modeled it after that.”

Adria also remembered Jared using crutches and contorted his body even after director Daniel Espinosa yelled cut.

“I remember fearing for this guy’s spine,” she shared. “There should have been a physical therapist on call.”

Morbius is out in theaters on April 1.
