After numerous unique roles, such as The Joker in Suicide Squad and a transgender hooker in Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto can now add becoming a Japanese Yakuza crime gangster to his resume. The story is, however, a bit more complicated. In Netflix’s upcoming original film ‘The Outsider‘, an American soldier who was imprisoned during the postwar in Japan enters the dark world of Yakuza as payback for his freedom. For those not familiar with the Yakuza, this is a notorious Japanese crime gang known for their brutality, tattoos and illegal activities. So you can expect loads of thrilling action.
The Outsider hits Netflix on 9 March.
