Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto is gaining weight for the role in the DC super-villain movie Suicide Squad.

The 43-year-old actor is preparing himself to play Joker in the film, reported Ace Showbiz.

The 30 Seconds to Mars lead vocalist who appears on the cover of Billboard's latest edition mentions in an interview to the magazine that he has been trying to gain weight for the role in the DC super-villain movie.

"Do you mind if I eat a little?" he asks. "I'm trying to gain a lot of weight. It means I have to eat every couple of hours - and I'm terrible at eating a lot." In addition to the Oscar-winning actor, Suicide Squad features Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne who will play Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Boomerang and Enchantress respectively.

Robocop star Joel Kinnaman is reported to be the frontman for the Rick Flag role.

Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad will start production in April for August 5, 2016 release.
