Jared Leto? You've got to be 'joking': SUICIDE SQUAD CASTING REVEALED

JARED LETO will play the JOKER..
TOM HARDY is Rick Flagg..

All of this casting will occur for the film SUICIDE SQUAD, expected to begin filming during the spring of 2015..

WARNER BROS announced the news today with fanfare, saying that the comic book film will center  around the vaudevillians and their chance of redemption in the eyes of the government that denounced them..

The movie is planned for a release August 2016..

There are more casting rumors saying that Lex Luther will be played by Jesse Eisenberg..

However, it's not all rosy news for the press release naming the big stars to the cast..
Some DC Comics fans are concerned about the use of character actors to play lead roles--in this regard there is concern as well that none of the female leads are strong actresses ..  User comments on various stories in relation to this press release seem lukewarm to the cast. While some are able to live with names like Will Smith, others are exceptionally concerned about the way Leto will play the clown prince of crime--

DC COMICS fans know the SUICIDE SQUAD well. They are the people who, in the comic, have redeemed themselves in the eyes of the United States government and have now become assets of UNCLE SAM..

There is undoubtedly a strong political message throughout the comic--it's most likely the same theme will be present in the film adaptation. It just also so happens to come at the same time the 2016 presidential election will be wrapping up, some wonder if the film will try to assert some sort of statement in the political world..





New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
