**If you don't want any Suicide Squad spoilers, then you best turn back now! If you want to know who Ike Barinholtz could be playing, continue on!**
Ike Barinholtz's role in Suicide Squad hasn't been revealed but it has been rumored that he's going to be playing Dr. Hugo Strange. Well, recent evidence has shown that this could indeed, not be the truth.
Do you remember Brian Azzarello's graphic novel Joker? We know that Jim Parrick (Fury, Trueblood) will be playing Joker's henchman Jonny Frost.
Killer Croc Hangs Out In A Meat Locker.
Right after Joker got out of Arkham, he and henchman Jonny Frost went to get Croc's assistance in helping him get his criminal empire back again. Then they all went to where "Monty" was hanging out:
This here is where we first see Harley Quinn. Now Harley has suddenly become a "dancer" and not the usual girl we're used to seeing. From the trailer, it looks similar to this scene:
Now On To Ike Barinholtz's Character!
Do you remember the poor soul who was skinned? His name was:
Monty sort of took over the Joker's criminal empire while he was in Arkham Asylum, and he, well.. sort of let it go down the drain. When Joker got out, he wasn't too pleased with how his business was run, so he skinned him.
A particular scene leads me to believe that Ike Barinholtz is in fact...Monty!
As you can see from the above image, that looks a lot like Ike Barinholtz. If you don't think so, take a look at his goatee, hair, and possibly the suit. Two very important details I'd like to point out to you.
1. How the Joker, "Can't wait to show him his toys!" Could then lead to him being skinned.
2. Look at the background! Meat...hanging meat! So that must mean that they're in a meat locker, or Crocs lair! And given that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje a.k.a. Killer Croc just so happens to be in the Suicide Squad also, this just furthers the theory even more!
So that must mean that Ike could be playing...Monty!
We've Also Seen Berinholtz Throughout The Trailers, As Well As In The Above Image:
And that could mean that he (Ike) is a crooked guard, who helps all the team escape, or the man himself:
This image looks similar to when Joker leaves Arkham Asylum in the same graphic novel, Joker:
