Jared Leto Set to Star in Hugh Hefner Biopic.

October 3, 2017
 
 
Last week, the world had lost one of the great pioneers of adult entertainment or American Entertainment in general, Hugh Hefner. Well in light of his death, we have a new update that may be acceptable to many fans and people who knew the late great icon the same. It was revealed that actor Jared Leto will be in the biopic for the late great Playboy founder that will be helmed by director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand). 
 
The film is being set up by Ratner's very own RatPac Entertainment after rights to Hefner's life became a free for all after the death of producer Jerry Weintraub. Ratner has been reportedly eyeing a Hefner biopic since back in 2007, which is about the same time Iron Man himself Robert Downey Jr. was rumored to be attached, and now he settled on Jared Leto as the right man for the job to portray Hefner. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ratner spoke about why he chose Jared to play the icon:
 
“Jared is an old friend. When he heard I got the rights to Hef’s story, he told me, ‘I want to play him. I want to understand him.’ And I really believe Jared can do it. He’s one of the great actors of today.”
 
Leto has already shown how he can immerse himself in other roles like when he did it for his role as the Joker in 'Suicide Squad' and like he will in 'Suicide Squad 2' and he has done in 'Blade Runner 2049'. Leto playing Hefner should be easy work even though the late great icon is much more than that.
