Common Grabs a Spot in Suicide Squad

Common, like everyone and their mother, has inked a deal for a part in Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad, The Hollywood Reporter writes. The movie, which already has the likes of Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, and Will Smith attached, is in production in Toronto, but that apparently means nothing casting-wise. Unfortunately, it’s unclear which side of the law Common will be on or whom he’ll play. It’s also unclear if Common will be featured on the movie’s soundtrack — he’s into music, you know — because Warner Bros. and David Ayer tease at their own pace, thank you very much. (Which are you more curious about now, though?) If you’re not excited by this news, THR adds that Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor and Ben Affleck’s Batman might make appearances in SS, too. Speculate away.
