Jared Leto is a well-known American actor and singer. After beginning his acting career in the mid-1990s, Jared Leto quickly progressed into roles in high fashion, TV, and films. Leto’s rise to stardom came as a result of a role in the acclaimed film, Invictus. While on this role, Jared Leto also appeared in the equally successful Apologize and World on TV shows. Following his massive success, Jared Leto then signed onto the hugely popular TV show, The Grey’s Anatomy.
A major part of this role was Jared Leto’s performance as a father. In the first season of Grey’s Anatomy, he playedfully portrayed a husband and father trying to balance his acting career and raising his young daughter, Alex. The character of Alex is quite different from other fathers seen on TV or in movies; this role required a lot of physical and emotional effort on the part of Jared Leto. It was also widely reported that after the first season of Grey’s Anatomy, executives at ABC felt that the character of Alex needed more development. After the character went through many changes throughout the show, it was then decided to give the audience what they wanted by casting him in the lead role of the next Grey’s Anatomy movie, which was to be titled American Gangster.

When American Gangster hit the scene, there was no way that anyone could touch Jared Leto. The character of Alex Cross was absolutely huge in buzz and reviews. Even after the role was expanded upon, it seemed that nothing could touch Jared Leto’s take on the role. He went on to receive an additional Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Leading Role, for his work in the film. This was quite a remarkable achievement for the young, up and coming actor, as he had never received an Academy Award before for any role in his life.
In the meantime, there were some other award-worthy performances by Leto that people should be aware of. Jared Leto also garnered an additional Oscar nomination for his contribution to the critically acclaimed movie, The Deerhunter. This film was very gripping and dramatic. Leto’s character was very complex and layered. He portrayed the loneliness and grief of a man who had lost his wife and young son in a car accident, while also battling an anger and lust for revenge after being fired from a high-paying job.
In the movie The Deerhunter, Jared Leto played a character that was so similar to Jim Carrey’s Jim Carrey character from the last three Harry Potter films: The Mask. In the movie, instead of being an insurance agent, Jared Leto was a recovering addict, going by the name “Jared.” While we are talking about Jim Carrey, did anyone tell you that Jared Leto was inspired by him in any way? People everywhere were sure that Leto was the real “voiced” character in the original The Mask, so this wasn’t a small thing to him either.
Jared Leto may very well have won his first Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, but what he did next will forever change his career. After winning the second Oscar for his work in the Dallas Buyers Club, Leto was so moved that he offered transvestites, and all same sex attracted men, a deal. Many of them took him up on it and gave him all of their money. Of course, this still begs the question: where will we see Jared Leto in the future? It is safe to say that he will continue to be a leading man role, but his role as a transgender woman in Hollywood will definitely be interesting.
