Jared Leto is a man that doesn't exist in this intriguing first trailer for Mr Nobody

1 min read


If there was ever anybody to give James Franco a run for his money for the title of Pretty Boy Who Does The Most Stuff, it would be Jared Leto. Not only a successful actor and producer, but also the insanely talented frontman to the popular rock group 30 Seconds to Mars, for whom he writes all the songs, designs all the album art and conceptualizes all their music videos.

This guy multitasks like a boss, as the kids say these days. Which actually makes him the perfect choice to play a man living through multiple timelines simultaneously.

A young boy stands on a station platform. The train is about to leave. Should he go with his mother or stay with his father? An infinity of possibilities rise from this decision. As long as he doesn’t choose, anything is possible. Every life deserves to be lived.

There’s a ton of Oscar buzz currently surrounding Leto’s performance as a transexual AIDS sufferer in Dallas Buyers Club opposite Matthew McConaughey, which is sort of a pity, as I have a feeling that that role may just overshadow this one a bit. And judging from the reports when Mr. Nobody did its film festival tour earlier in the year, as well as what can be seen in this trailer, this is not a performance to overlook at all.

Mr Nobody will be getting a limited release on November 1, 2013.
