Jared Leto is currently on tour with his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, and appears to be taking the opportunity to test out his Joker voice in public.
Of course, the audience at a 30 Seconds to Mars gig may not be the most critical of him. It’s likely that they’d cheer anything he said, a trick that bands make good use of frequentlyjust by saying the name of the city they’re playing. Thankfully, some of the audience recorded a line or two, so you can make your own mind up.
He seems to be dropping his voice into a gravelly pitch. Unfortunately, we don’t get to hear the Joker’s distinctive laugh. That makes up quite a significant amount of what makes the Joker...Well, the Joker.
Jared Leto will play the Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad film. Also set to appear in the film are Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis and Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg.
