According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jared Leto will be playing Hugh Hefner in an upcoming biopic from Brett Ratner. In 2014, he won “Best Actor” for playing a transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club. When he heard that he got the role he said, “I want to play him. I want to understand him.”
Back in April, Ratner invited Leto to the Playboy Mansion for the premiere of Amazon’s docuseries: American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story. He hoped to introduce him to Hef but he was not doing so well health wise. Ratner isn’t worried because he feels that Leto will have more than enough footage/ information on Hef to get the job done.
And with all this, it looks like some fans are not too thrilled…
