Jared Leto Gets Pumped for ‘Suicide Squad’ Role

Jared Leto Selfie The Joker

Yeah, that’s the same Jared Leto who won an oscar for his role as Rayon, an emaciated, HIV-positive transgender woman in Dallas Buyer’s Club. It’s no wonder that comic fans were caught off guard when hearing that Leto would be introduced as the classic Batman villain The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad.

Clearly, the Acadamy Award winner goes to the extreme to get into character for each new role — evidenced by this selfie he recently shared on his Instagram page. As if The Joker wasn’t frightening enough; look at the pipes on this guy. No doubt Leto spent a lot of time in the gym bulking up his upper body with chest routines and arm workouts like this.

He’s not the only comic book character to get big and ripped. Here’s the workout Chris Hemsworth used to build the intimidating physique of Thor, and Henry Cavill’s routine to become the Man of Steel.

From ‘druidical erection’ to Spinal Tap: a history of Stonehenge as tourist site

New ‘Stonehengiana’ exhibition created by archeologist Julian Richards displays souvenirs and other ephemera charting history of site as tourist attraction since the 19th century

It has been a place of pilgrimage for many centuries and a tourist attraction probably since Roman times.

But a new exhibition opening at Stonehenge on Friday tells the fascinating story of how the monument developed from a crumbling curiosity in Victorian times to one of the world’s most visited sites, drawing in more than 1 million people a year.

Samsung’s Mobile Business Sees Major Profit Drop Following iPhone 6 Launch

During its Wednesday earnings call, Apple rival Samsung Electronics reported net profit of 4.63 trillion won ($4.35 billion) for the January to March quarter, a 39% drop from its net profit of 7.49 trillion won in the year ago quarter. A sizable portion of the lost profit came from Samsung’s mobile division, which brought in 2.74 trillion won ($2.5 billion) in the first quarter of 2015, vs. 6.43 trillion won in the first quarter of 2014.

Despite the year over year profit loss, Samsung’s earnings release highlighted its quarter over quarter improvement and pointed towards increased sales of middle-end smartphones including the Galaxy A series. Samsung doesn’t divulge its smartphone sales, but analysts believe the company sold 83.2 million smartphones during the quarter, compared to Apple’s 61.2 million.

The high number of sales let Samsung regain its title of the worlds largest smartphone maker, but many of those sales were for lower-priced phones and not flagship devices, causing it to lose profit year over year. Much of Samsung’s profit loss can be attributed to the introduction of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, letting Apple devices compete with Samsung devices on screen size for the first time.

Ahead of the launch of the two larger-screened iPhones, big screens were a feature that set Samsung devices apart from iPhones and drew customers for the South Korean company, but with the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus, Samsung has lost some of its grasp on customers seeking devices with bigger displays.

Samsung expects its profits to increase during the second quarter following the global launch of the company’s new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge and on the strength of its semiconductor business. According to Samsung, demand for its curved S6 Edge has been high, but limited supplies have restricted sales.

Paramore to Set Sail Again on Parahoy! Festival at Sea in 2016

Paramore will once again lift anchors when they embark on their second Parahoy! Festival at Sea next year. The floating concert will take place March 5th – 9th and travel round-trip from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico. Paramore will perform twice during the fest, which has yet to announce the rest of its lineup.

The festival, which will take place on a boat called the Norwegian Pearl, will also feature meet and greets, a Q&A and “Paraoke” with the band and other activities which have yet to be announced. It will also include DJ sets, theme nights, sets by stand-up comedians and “much, much more,” according to the fest’s website. The fest is currently running a presale that includes a photo with the group and a Parahoy sailor’s cap.

The group will hand-pick the artists who perform on the fest. Last year’s Parahoy festival featured sets by Tegan and Sara and New Found Glory.

But before the festival, Paramore still have plenty of tour dates to play this year. Earlier this year, frontwoman Hayley Williams told Rolling Stone that she viewed the tour as a victory lap, since the group recently won the Best Rock Song Grammy for their Paramore tune “Ain’t It Fun,” an LP that hit Number One.

“We never in a million years thought we would win a Grammy, or any of the other crazy things that happened along the way,” she said. “So we’re thinking of each show as an event, as a way to celebrate our relationship with fans, to celebrate the album and to celebrate the past two years of this band.”

Terry Crews Remarks on His ‘Legendary’ Cheat Days

terry crews february 2015

You know what they say: work hard, play hard. In Terry Crews’ case, “playing” means downing some serious calories. 

Crews was in stellar shape as he graced our February cover this year, but the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” actor told a Flint Journal reader that the shoot triggered a cheat day for the ages. 

“I decided, when it was done, it was on,” Crews said. “I remember ribs, mac and cheese, beans, potato salad. Everything you can imagine. I’m a big, big barbecue guy. I can have barbecue any day, every day. I had it laid out, then with skillet cornbread. Then I had sweet potato pie, peach cobbler.”

If we pretended to believe Crews only ate a single serving of the mentioned foods, he would have taken in anywhere from 2000 – 2500 calories in the meal. It was likely a lot more, but we’re not casting stones! Today’s lesson is that even someone with one of the 16 greatest physiques of all time falls off the horse sometimes. What matters is how you respond. 

“I hurt myself that day,” Crews said. “It was pretty wrong I ain’t gonna lie. I earned it though.”
