Jared Leto Is Ready To Play Dana White On Screen
“WeCrashed” has brought the spotlight to the rollercoaster adventure of WeWork, which once had a value of $47 million.
In the limited series, Jared Leto plays the role of the founder of WeWork Adam Neumann. Alongside him, Anne Hathaway is starring as his wife, Rebekah Neumann.
It feels like Leto knows how to be the box office star consistently. Now the American actor wants to morph roles to take on the plans of a UFC movie.
In an interview with Extra’s Jenn Lahmars, the 50-year-old stated: “You never know, I may play the role of UFC president Dana White”.
“If I was younger, I would like to play Connor McGregor. I got a beard pretty similar to his. The way Conor has represented himself down the years is simply incredible. Maybe I am too old for his role, but you never know,” Leto explained.
“We may have some plans related to CGI.”
Leto is a “big” UFC fan, according to White who previously spoke about his friendship with the actor. He has been spotted at numerous UFC events, including sitting next to UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Neither McGregor nor White has yet responded to Leto’s comments.
The Irishman is spending days training after recently recovering from the leg injury that forced him to concede a loss via doctor’s stoppage to Dustin Poirier in their trilogy showdown.
