Jared Leto Oscar's

Jared Leto, notorious for being selective in his roles, signed up to be the star in an upcoming movie “The Outsider.” The movie is about an American man locked away in a Japanese prison during World War II. He’s aided to escape by a fellow prisoner who happens to be a member of the Yakuza. Once Jared’s character is released, he spends time trying to repay the favor while navigating the criminal underworld. Shooting for the movie is expected to start this fall.
