In recent interview with NME, Jared Leto spoke of David Bowie, the man, not the music, as being a serious influence for his character.
The actor plays the character in the new Suicide Squad film, appearing alongside the likes of Margot Robbie and Will Smith.
Speaking to NME, Leto said: “I spoke to a writer and we discussed David Bowie a bit, not necessarily the music of David, but his class, his elegance, his timelessness.
“I don’t wanna say who the guy was, but he’s a famous writer in the world of DC [Comics]. Bowie was definitely one of the people we spoke about.”
He added: “I think David Bowie is probably an inspiration for almost anything you could do creatively.”
