Actor Who Played Joker in Birds of Prey Revealed

The actor who stood in for Jared Leto in Birds of Prey has been revealed. While Leto did not reprise his role for the film, which saw Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) deal with her breakup from the Clown Prince of Crime, there was a brief non-speaking cameo by the character. Rather than bring Leto back for a few barely-there scenes, a double was brought in and that turned out to be indie rocker Johnny Goth.

Goth told Earshot Media (per JoBlo), “I knew a few people working on the film and they had heard they needed someone to be the Joker and thought it would be sick if I did it. They needed someone with similar hands to Leto’s Joker and someone who would fit the costumes so I just came in and turned out to be the same sizes and they gave me the part. We filmed about a month after.
