Jared Leto To Play The Late Hugh Hefner In New Biopic!

Oh, this is going to be pretty epic!

Jared Leto is reportedly all set to play American icon and Playboy founder, the late Hugh Hefner in the Brett Ratner planned project.

“Jared is an old friend,” Brett told THR. “When he heard I got the rights to Hef‘s story, he told me, ‘I want to play him. I want to understand him.’ And I really believe Jared can do it. He’s one of the great actors of today.”

Indeed.

Ratner had hoped to introduce Leto to Hefner before his recent passing, but Hefner was in failing health and not greeting guests that day. “There’s enough footage on Hef out there that Jared will be able to get as much information as he wants,” Ratner says.

So Dancers, are we excited about seeing the Oscar winner’s portrayal of Hefner???
