It looks like Jared Leto is going to make a comeback on the small screen! Leto is set to star in a TV show for the first time since his 1994 show My So-Called Life. He’s starring in a New Apple Series WeCrashed, which is based on the popular podcast of the same name.
WeCrashed started off as a six-episode podcast, with David Brown as the host. It focused on the rise and fall of WeWork and its founders. With Lee Eisenberg and Drew Crevello as writers, WeCrashed will have Crazy, Stupid, Love heads John Requa and Glenn Ficarra as directors. Moreover, Eiseinberg and Crevello will also serve as Executive Producers. And here’s a chance that Jared Leto could be a part of the production as well.
What kind of role will Jared Leto play?
Leto will play the role of WeWork’s charismatic CEO Adam Neumann. He put the company on a trajectory of a meteoric rise towards a massive IPO. It had a value of around $47 billion before the company came tumbling down, with its valuation crashing. It left thousands of investors with their money gone overnight.
Neumann himself had a net worth of $750 million at the peak of the company’s valuation. However, he was later ousted and the company never truly reached the heights that he had envisioned. As a result, today millions of dollars worth of office space sits idle, without tenents. And Jared Leto might just be the perfect actor to play the role of the charismatic CEO.
We have seen Leto play ambitious and unconventional roles in the past. This includes his performance in American Psycho, even though he was not at the center of that film. Now, WeCrashed is not going to be a movie as crazy as American Psycho, but the role might just be what reestablishes Jared Leto’s talents as an actor.
Leto is also set to star in Sony’s Marvel movie Morbius and Warner Bros.’s The Little Things, which is a serial killer thriller. Furthermore, he’ll be working alongside fellow Oscar winner Denzel Washington and Rami Malek. Moreover, he is also going to be working on Ridley Scott’s Gucci, alongside Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, and Al Pacino. And if these projects weren’t enough, he may be set to star in the Tron: Legacy sequel as well. Things are looking up for Jared Leto!
