Suicide Squad actor Jared Leto has been cast to play famed pop artist Andy Warhol in an upcoming biopic called Warhol. He will also be producing the film alongside director Michael De Luca, who as you might already know, has a talent for adapting real-life stories and characters for the big screen (see The Social Network and Captain Phillips).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the biopic will be based off Victor Bockris's Warhol: The Biography and Terrence Winter (who wrote The Wolf of Wall Street) will write its screenplay.

We have no doubt that Jared will be able to pull off the eccentric artist's personality on-screen. His background in art and photography should give him a leg up for the film, and we haven't even counted his penchant for method acting.
