It’s 5pm on a Thursday. Two
colleagues are on coffee break. Someone brings up Jared Leto and a fierce debate ensues. Excerpts:
Honestly, what regular-people movies has he even done?
He isn’t trying to become JLaw or Brad Pitt, so regular people don’t *need* to know of him! And he was in
Wait. Who was he in
? That movie had only three people.
Shhh! You can’t talk about
. You’re breaking the first rule.

Better Joker in a DC-type film than in one where Ben Affleck plays Batman!
Celebs who try to do too many things never do well, where’s James Franco now?
Ummm, heard of this little Internet sensation of a film called
? This is never going to end. Can we please talk about The Mindy Project now?
And thus, peace is restored.
