Jared Leto Makes Jack Nicholson Cry

Jared Leto’s Joker Photo Gets Tearful Reaction From Jack Nicholson [VIDEO]

Jared Leto’s Joker photo for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie triggered a wide range of emotions from fans and critics alike. But there’s only one person who cried about it and that’s Jack Nicholson…maybe.

In a genius smashup of the last scene in About Schmidt and Leto’s depiction of The Joker, Youtuber Toniemcee shows us the only reaction Nicholson could have had on seeing the photo.

Nicholson famously played The Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989. His version of the maniacal clown prince was iconic and raised the bar for comic book villain performances on screen forever. Only Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker has topped it, many critics say.

Though it’s not exactly real, the video sums up the negative reviews Jared Leto’s joker photo has gotten from the public. Lots of people have a problem with the grill and the tattoos, which are a huge deviation from the comic-book version of the character.

Luckily for the people who hate the tattoos, Jared Leto’s joker won’t be sporting them in the Suicide Squad movie. According to Movie Pilot the photo, originally tweeted by director David Ayers, was actually released to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the creation of the character. If you take the time to read the David Ayers tweet, then you’ll see the hashtag #joker75 which is an indication of the photo’s true intent.

On-set photos also show a tatooless Jared Leto in character as The Joker.
