According to TheWrap, the Joker may have found a cell mate for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. The site reports that the Gang Related and Hostel alum Jay Hernandez may be the latest to join the expansive cast of the hotly-anticipated villain team-up and is currently in negotiations for a mystery role.
The only clue we’ve been given about Hernandez’s role is that he “could be playing an inmate on the same cell block as the Joker,” though there are “several other open roles” that he could be in contention for. Seeing as there are literally 10,000 characters in the DC Comics catalogue, who Hernandez may be playing (if he even is a character from the comics) is anyone’s guess.
If Hernandez does get cast, he’ll be joined by Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as the Joker, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. Quite the lineup, eh?
Suicide Squad is scheduled to hit theaters on August 5th, 2016. We’ll have more news about Hernandez’s mystery role as it becomes available, but for now, head on down to the comments and let us know who you think he’ll be playing.
