Diversifying and embracing various genres, he took on slasher film Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, Steven Spielberg's historical drama Amistad and sci-fic flick Contact. He then shifted gears and started getting typecast in romantic comedies such as The Wedding Planner and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. In 2010, he made yet another move and decided it was time to tackle other types of roles. He’s since appeared in The Lincoln Lawyer, Magic Mike and his latest release, Dallas Buyers Club, is already earning him Oscar buzz.

Jared Leto is widely recognized as both a successful actor and talented musician. He first made a name for himself on 1994 teen drama My So-Called Life, then moved on to the big screen, starting with The Thin Red Line (1998) and Girl, Interrupted (1999). He’s since appeared in Fight Club, Panic Room and American Psycho. In 1998, he formed rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars for which he is the lead vocalist and main songwriter.
