Less than a week since Hugh Hefner’s death it has been announced that Jared Leto will star as the Playboy founder in Brett Ratner’s planned project!
Ratner opened up and said that “Jared is an old friend” and when he heard that Brett got the rights to Hef’s story, he Leto said, “I want to play him. I want to understand him.”
Unfortunately, Leto didn’t meet Hefner before his death on September 27th, but there is apparently enough footage on Hef out there that Jared will be able to get as much information as he wants!
Brett has said that “Hugh Hefner started a sexual revolution from behind the walls of his legendary mansion by using the pages of Playboy magazine and his own infamous lifestyle to build a global empire that included publishing, clubs, casinos and television networks”… Hopefully he does a good job portraying this in the upcoming biopic!
