Jared Leto: 'I road-tested my character to get a little judgment, some meanness, a little condemnation'
The rock star and actor deserves a best supporting actor Oscar for Rayon, his transgender character in Dallas Buyers Club, another exercise in total immersion

I'd say Leto looks pretty good. And the experience related in the article is exactly how I felt the first time I strutted my stuff in Manchester Piccadilly although I didn't experience any adverse reactions. The rest of the article goes on about the film plot, which isn't about transgender matters at all - but AIDS in the eighties. Leto's character is a supporting role.

More on this from the Indy. Why can't they use trans actors to play trans characters? Maybe because there aren't enough of them to choose from? It's not something that bothers me, though.

Following on form this, Leto got a hard time recently.

It seems some are annoyed that trans parts aren't played by trans actors. I have to say, I'm with Leto on this one - the matter is; can they play the part, not their orientation. Otherwise gay actors could never play straight roles and so on. That would be getting silly. I haven't yet seen this film, so can't comment on how well Leto portrays his role, so will reserve judgement, but the whole "must be played by a trans actor" isn't a meme I can go along with and reflects badly on us.

Even the mountain biking community are talking about him.
