There's been a lot of talk lately about a little film called [Suicide Squad](movie:2283363) with casting rumors going back and forth. That being said nothing could prepare us for the major bomb that exploded on Friday night...The Joker was rumored to be in Suicide Squad and on top of that there's someone circling the role. That's right apparently The Joker might be making an appearance in Suicide Squad and might be played by Jared Leto. This big rumor once i heard it i knew i had to write this article because as much as i respect Jared Leto i just cant see this role going to him.

i just cant...
i just cant...

I know DC casting choices have been a source of debate ever since Batman and now the Flash but this is The Joker were talking about! The Joker i think possibly might be their biggest and well known character especially after Ledger's performance in The Dark Knight. I also might be wrong and Jared Leto might surprise us all as so did Heath back in 2008 but i also have two other actors i believe to be phenomenal for the role. So with that being said lets start of with my choices starting off with......

Sharlto Copley

That's right the guy from District 9 and [Elysium](movie:44956) i think would make a perfect clown prince to go up against Batman. The reason is because Copley just has an immense screen presence and he can play a pretty good psychopath i mean just watch Elysium and you'll see it. I also think he has the acting ability to give light to a more dark toned, gritty, maniacal joker than we've ever had. Though i admire the psychopathic side of the Clown Prince i also think the character humorous charismatic side is just as important. This is something i don't see as much in Copley as i do in my top pick which is....

Jake Gyllenhaal

this performance wow...
this performance wow...

YES! I believe the role should go to Jake Gyllenhaal not only do i think he has the acting chops for the role but also the man was incredible in [Nightcrawler](movie:938302). I believe Jake has shown he can be that actor who can dive into a role and make it his and he has been succeeding. Every movie I've seen with Gyllenhaal has been delightful to say the least the man is a natural especially with dark complex roles and thats exactly what The Joker is. It be a pretty neat casting as he was almost chosen to be Bruce Wayne in Nolans Dark Knight trilogy, would be pretty cool seeing him become The Joker now.
