These Songs Were Made With The Cemetery In Mind

8/28/2015 3:24pm EDT
10 Songs About Death And Burial
Death is an eerie thing – understatement to the nth degree. Still, it’s real-life and as uncomfortable a topic it may be, it must be discussed. In the context of this article, death is approached from the postmortem practice of burial. There are no references to embalming, mummification or cremation. Who in their right mind would write a song about those things anyways? Well maybe somebody, but it doesn’t happen here! Still, these joints have the cemetery in mind.

New 'Suicide Squad' Joker Photos Are Absolutely Terrifying

6/11/2015 4:30pm EDT
Jared Leto
New set photos from "Suicide Squad" have just hit the internet, and they make Jared Leto's Joker look even more terrifying than ever. In the photos, Leto's looking right into the camera- his smoldering stare, plus the eyeshadow, gold teeth, pale skin and menacing tattoos makes this Joker look positively revolting.

Leto was spotted wearing a heavy black cloak- clearly, the "Dallas Buyer's Club" Oscar winner was trying to hide his costume. But given the white collared shirt and purple bow tie, it looks like he's wearing a very comic-appropriate purple suit. Just like the Joker should.

Ben Affleck To Bring Batman To 'Suicide Squad,' Seen Filming Car
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice won't be the only DC Comics superhero film that Ben Affleck will star in as the Caped Crusader -- it appears that he'll be reprising the role for next summer's Suicide Squad.

The actor was spotted on the streets of Toronto last week and his stunt-double (who looks an awful lot like him) was filming a scene opposite Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and the stunt double for Jared Leto's Joker on Wednesday.

Some of the action was even caught on video and posted to YouTube, with the stars involved in a car chase that gives us a great look at the newly redesigned...

Jared Leto Knocks Out Margot Robbie On Set Of 'Suicide Squad' (See Pics)

Suicide Squad
Following weeks of filming scenes for next summer's Suicide Squad in Toronto, Canada, Jared Leto has finally made his presence on set as the Joker.

The actor and co-star Margot Robbie, who plays Dr. Harleen Quinzell and later becomes villainess and the Joker's love interest Harley Quinn, were spotted shooting a scene in which Mr. J (as Quinn called him in the popular "Batman: Arkham Asylum" video game) confronts Quinzell, who is apparently at the point of falling for him -- in more ways than one.

The Joker arrives on the scene in his pink hotrod -- with the license plate "HAHAHA" -- and s...

12 Of The Most Successful Actor-Musician Combos
They say that actors want to be musicians and that musicians want to be actors. For some who attempt to be the ‘double threat,’ they fail miserably. Only a select few have managed to find the balance or minimally success in both fields. How is such success measured? There are a number of indicators but for the 12 artists that make this list, most of the indicators of success lie in accolades with the crème de la crème being an Academy Award or a Grammy.

As demonstrated by "Dallas Buyers Club," Jared Leto has no problem altering his look for a film role, even if that means cutting off his gorgeous hair and shaving his beard.

The actor, who walked the Oscars red carpet in a pale blue tuxedo last month, stars as The Joker in the upcoming film "Suicide Squad" and is no longer sporting his signature, flowing locks look.

Director David Ayer posted a black and white image of the star on Twitter with the simple hashtag #SuicideSquard.

10 Gender Bending & Androgynous Celebrities
People who cross the line between male and female and are confused for being the opposite sex are referred to as androgynous. They embody sexual ambiguity. They display it in their fashion and/or in their sexual or gender identity.

Scottish actress Tilda Swinton is an ethereal, androgynous star who keeps her platinum blonde hair short and resembles a man at times.

She told the Daily Mail in 2014 she's often mistaken for being male "especially at airport security. I think I should probably wear more lipstick."

With winners such as Olivia Wilde, Woody Harrelson, and Carrie Underwood, winning PETA's sexiest vegetarian is no easy task. This year the animal rights group picked a pair of hot celebrities who stay healthy without meat.

This year Oscar winner Jared Leto and Academy Award nominee Ellen Page topped the list of the group's sexiest vegetarians for 2014.

Leto has been outspoken about his vegetarian lifestyle, once refuting a rumor he was eating cheeseburgers to gain weight for Chapter 27 by saying, "I did not gain weight for this role by casually eating burgers and fries. Besides the fact t...

Jared Leto wonders if her clumsiness isn't entirely an accident. He told Access Hollywood: "You know, I'm starting to wonder if this is a bit of an act."

He also recalled how Lawrence went off script as she came onto the stage because she saw him and his family laughing.

Sexy Male Stars At The 86th Annual Academy Awards
It's usually all about the ladies and who they're wearing on the Oscars red carpet. But there are plenty of guys that look really incredible too.

Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "American Hustle," wore a Tom Ford tuxedo to the event. He was accompanied by his British model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

Jared Leto easily stole the coveted Oscar from Cooper for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club." But we don't think he won the red carpet competition.

Leto's tux was an unusual combination of black and white with a red bow tie. We can forgive him his style choice b...

Oscar Predictions: Does 'Gravity' Carry Enough Weight?
For the most part, the major categories at the Oscars are fairly easy to predict. But some years there are upset winners (‘Shakespeare in Love,’ Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Binoche, Adrien Brody, to name a few) that remind us that anything can happen.

This year is a little different. Who remembers a year where the race for Best Picture is down to three films, two of which are so close that they tied at the Producers’ Guild? It seems like there are some definite locks this year (Hello, Cate Blanchett) but you read it here: Nothing is guaranteed. Nothing.

Jared Leto was struck down with gout after gaining nearly 70 pounds for a movie role.

The 30 Seconds To Mars frontman piled on the pounds to play John Lennon's killer Mark Chapman in Chapter 27, but the excessive weight gain caused a number of health problems.

Leto battled gout, which involves painful bouts of inflammatory arthritis, and raised cholesterol, which prompted doctors to put him on medication.

He tells The Guardian, "Really, it's a stupid thing to do (gaining weight). I got gout, and my cholesterol went up so fast in such a short time that my doctors wanted to put me on Li...

Movie Review: 'Dallas Buyers Club'

Dallas Buyers Club
I will admit, as of the time I’m writing this review, I haven’t quite seen every film of 2013. But as of this moment, I’ve seen 71 films, and Dallas Buyers Club is the best. Hands down. It’s such a beautiful character arc for McConaughey that you can’t ignore it, and the film itself is just heart wrenching enough, and inspirational enough, to make you stand up and cheer.

 McConaughey is tasked with playing Ron Woodruff, a real-life cowboy, who contracts the HIV virus during the peak of the AIDS crisis, and when men like Ron Woodruff thought only gays could get HIV. Ron turns from being a l...

12 Years a Slave
Some people were surprised by The Butler’s presence here, but I don’t see any surprises from them. Movies like Gravity and Her (which are frontrunners for a Best Picture nomination) aren’t large cast films, and wouldn’t get the Ensemble nomination over The Butler. The big surprise is Dallas Buyers Club, which is a relatively small cast, and did manage an Ensemble nomination. That could go a long way in getting DBC to a Best Picture nomination. Also, Daniel Bruhl is back in the race with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rush.

First thing I must say is that, Matthew McConaughey has become one hell of an actor. From ‘Killer Joe’ to ‘Paper Boy’ followed by ‘Mud’ and now ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ he gives nothing less than stellar performances.

‘Dallas Buyers Club' is based on true events and is the story of one man’s determination to survive, against all odds.

The year is 1985, the place Dallas Texas. McConaughey plays Ron Woodroof, a 35 year old electrician and rodeo cowboy.  He lives a life filled with unprotected sex, booze, drugs and hanging out with his homophobic friends.
