Among the comments on his Instagram feed: “I'm so sad for you haircut but so happy for your new movie. Enjoy the Joker.” Many entertainment outlets were seriously mourning the loss.

Leto’s hirsute look apparently is not the only thing he has to do for the role. According to this report from IGN.com, Leto also has to gain a lot of weight.

But there’s still room for jokes.
