You may have been keeping track of my updates on Jared Leto's changing hairstyle. In preparation for taking on the iconic role of the Joker, Leto first cut off his flowing locks seen above, then dyed his hair platinum blonde. Meanwhile, I've been there every step of the way to tell you about it. This has become my Watergate. I'm just following the money (into hairdressers' pockets). Here are the photos:

Now, for his final transformation, Leto has dyed his hair the traditional shocking Joker green, as seen in this leaked Snapchat photo:

Some red lipstick and a pouty expression help to give more of an idea of how Leto will eventually look as the classic villain, but he still doesn't have the Joker's pallid complexion. We also still don't know if the character in Suicide Squad will sport scars like Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight. Only time will tell, but when it does, I'll be there on the front lines to bring you all the gory details. Because I'm a journalist*.
