"Suicide Squad" Adds "Twilight" Actor

The "Suicide Squad" news keeps coming: Days after director and screenwriter David Ayer revealed a new look at Jared Leto as a heavily tattooed Joker to a very vocal online response, Variety has word of a new casting addition. Alex Meraz, who played werewolf Paul Lahote in multiple "Twilight" movies, has joined Warner Bros.' upcoming DC Comics-based film in an as-yet unrevealed role.

Though "Suicide Squad" is currently in production in Toronto, cast news has continued to break, with last week bringing news that actor/rapper Common has joined the film, also in an unrevealed role.

Featuring a high-profile ensemble cast including Leto as the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, "Suicide Squad" is scheduled for release on Aug. 5, 2016.
