Social Media is the bane of most directors' existence nowadays. Unless they are using it themselves to help sell their product. Case in point, Suicide Squad. Director David Ayer has used his Twitter account to post behind-the-scenes teases, and he even revealed his entire cast in costume. But he's in control. When someone else leaks out a bit of information, that's a whole different story. And actress Corina Calderon is probably getting an earful this morning, as she finally revealed one of the characters in the movie who, up until this point, had not been announced.
Fans have long speculated who Jim Parrack is playing in Suicide Squad. Now, thanks to Corina Calderon, we know! He will play The Joker's Henchman Jonny Frost. The character was created specifically for the 2008 graphic novel simply titled 'Joker'. The book was written by Brian Azzarello and illustrated by Lee Bermejo. This may not be news to some of you, as The Warp's Jeff Sneider first reported on this a few months ago during an episode of his 'Meet the Press' podcast. Now it is confirmed.
Corina Calderon only has a small part in Suicide Squad, and her character has not been mentioned by name. She previously worked with David Ayer on his cop thriller End of Watch, and the pair obviously have a good working relationship. If she doesn't show up in his next movie, we'll know that her acts of treason against the DC Movie may be to blame. She has since had to delete her Instagram revealing Jim Parrack's character. But she had this to say, which comes courtesy of Batman News:
"All #HappyCamper on my way to set again, going earlier than my #CallTime just to be there and watch my boy Jim Parrack playing #JonnyFrost do his Thang #SuicideSquad"
The photo, which you can view here, doesn't show Jim Parrack in character. And it's unclear if the actress herself is in costume. It certainly doesn't look to be the case. If you watch the trailer closely, you will catch a glimpse of Jonny Frost, as he leads The Joker down a hallway. We've included both the photo and the trailer so you can watch it all over again in it's glory. With so many characters in Suicide Squad, it's doubtful that Frost will get much screen time. And his character will probably serve as set dressing for Jared Leto's Joker more than anything else.
In Suicide Squad, supervillains accept a secret government mission that will likely result in their deaths. The cast also includes Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang and Will Smith as Deadshot. In the 'Joker' graphic novel, Jonny Frost is a low-level thug sent to Arkham Asylum to pick up the Joker. The Joker immediately takes a liking to Frost and uses him as a chauffeur. In the movie, Frost clearly has a hand in helping the Joker storm an as yet unidentified building at gunpoint. What do you think? Do you like Jim Parrack as The Joker's righthand man?
