Jared Leto plays a transgendered woman in The Dallas Buyer's Club along side Matthew McConnaughey. I can't wait to see this film...Jared makes a beautiful woman. Here's how he got the part:

A Skype call between Vallee (the director) and Leto, who was in Berlin on tour, sealed the deal. When Vallee signed onto the call, Leto was already in characeter:

“He was dressed as a woman, as Rayon, with makeup, for this 20-30 minute call. I thought he was going to stop the masquerade after five minutes, but he didn’t. He was talking as Rayon and creating the character in front of me.”

Leto: “I remember connecting, and reaching out to pick up some lipstick. I put it on and I could kind of see his jaw drop. I undid this big winter jacket and had a pink furry sweater on and pulled it down over my shoulder.”

Vallee was stunned: “He was even hitting on me. He’d say, ‘Oh, Jean-Marc, I love your voice and your eyes; you’re so masculine!’ ” he says with a laugh. Vallee says he got off the call and told the producers and McConaughey, “I think we found the guy.”

He was interviewed about it on the daily show.

Does look like he's good in it.
