Did Jared Leto take the picture? That seems to be the question everyone’s asking about this cast photo from the first Suicide Squad table read which was tweeted by director David Ayer (Training Day, Fury). Also missing from the picture are newcomers Scott Eastwood (who may be playing Wonder Woman’s love interest) and Ray Olubowale.
Meanwhile, three new cast members were present at the table read: Ike Barinholtz, Adam Beach, and Jim Parrack. We’ll get to who they may be playing in a moment. First, let’s break down who’s who in this photo.
Back row, from left to right: David Ayer, Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Jay Hernandez, Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Adam Beach, Jim Parrack, and Ike Barinholtz.
As for who the three new cast members will play, all we have at the moment is a rumor from Latino Review’s El Mayimbe, who says Jim Parrack is playing Deathstroke since negotiations fell through with Joe Manganiello, while Adam Beach may be playing Ravan and Ike Barinholtz is Dr. Hugo Strange. Barinholtz as Dr. Strange was totally unexpected, but then again, he does have medical experience.
