Ike Barinholtz Teases his Suicide Squad Character is a Troubled Human Being


Ike Barinholtz who plays an undisclosed character in Suicide Squad, during an interview with Zap2it, spoke a bit on what type of character he’s playing in the film.

“I can tell you my character in that movie is someone you would not want at your house for dinner. He’s a very troubled human being,”

Barinholtz talking on the tone of the film that director David Ayer is going with for the film, along with how funny each of the actors are:

“The trailer is very serious, but [director] David Ayer is a psychopath. As as much as he loves the dark and exploring the disturbed side of society, it’s not like you’re telling jokes, but if you can just kind of in the moment try to play things a little honestly and react to these giant, huge superhero things that are happening, funny stuff can kind of happen and there can be laughs from it,” Barinholtz explains.

“With that said, who knows; when the cut the movie it might be very serious. But Will Smith is a very funny guy, Jai Courtney is actually a very funny guy, Margot Robbie is actually funny, so I think there is going to be some moments in that that actually make people laugh.”

Barinholtz also talks about being a comic book fan as a child, reading the Dirty Dozen, saying that Suicide Squad is a lot like that series. He talks on his cast mate Cara Delevigne being a pretty big fan of the of the television series he’s on, The Mindy Project and that a machismo guy like Jai Courtney, admits to also being a fan of the series.
