Watch: Scott Eastwood Does Own Stunts in "Suicide Squad"

We've all seen Jared Leto as The Joker with his green hair and ghoulish makeup from the upcoming Suicide Squad.

It is quite the scary sight.

Scott Eastwood, who plays a military man in the film, hints that the Oscar winner may have gone all method for his work in the superhero villain flick.

"I was sort of afraid to approach him because I didn't want to mess with his thing going on," Eastwood told E! News exclusively yesterday at the Maui Film Festival, where he was honored with the Rising Star Award. "But I knew him before. I met him before he was The Joker. I just met him as Jared Leto. So I didn't know if I wanted to mess up his thing."

While details surrounding the film are slowly being revealed, Eastwood promised that director David Ayer "is doing something the world will be really surprised about."


And everyone is doing a lot of their own stunt work.

"[It's] really physical," Eastwood said. "David is a very physical film maker. He wants everyone doing their own stuff and he doesn't hire guys who aren't willing to do that."

And yup, there have been some bumps and bruises, but nothing too serious yet.

"I think active guys are always living with injuries," Eastwood said. "You're always dealing with an injury. That's part of it. It's like sports. There's always something."

We, of course, wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't ask Scott about his hot body. Tune into E! News tonight at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. to hear what he had to say about maintaining his killer abs and more.
