Leto told Extratv while promoting his limited series ‘We Worked’, “Well, I am a huge UFC fan and I’m a huge Dana White fan. I hope he is a huge Jared Leto fan too. Maybe I could play Dana White. That would be great. If we do the UFC movie, if I was younger, I’d play Conor McGregor. I got the beard. What Conor does and what these guys and gals do is just extraordinary…. I’m too old to do Conor, probably, but you never know. We could maybe use some CGI.”

The ‘Notorious’ one was permissive of the idea, and responded to it on his Twitter by saying,

“Jared Leto, I invite you to come and practice the part with me!”

Jared Leto has finally responded to the invite by saying,

Let’s do it


Leto would be the right guy to play the ‘Notoriou’ one owing to his shape-shifting abilities as an actor, and his deep love for the sport.
