Jared Leto goes behind the scenes of ‘WeCrashed’

The WeCrashed star talks about diving into the world of Adam Neumann and the challenges he still wants to take on.

Jared Leto’s prolific journey culminated in April with the latest episode of WeCrashed, the Apple TV+ limited series. The series traces the dramatic rise and fall of WeWork co-founder Adam Neumann, portrayed by an unrecognizable Leto beneath his prosthetics and brown contact lenses.

It seems that to prepare for the role of Adam Newman, you wanted to play this character even when the cameras weren’t rolling. What did this exercise teach you about the character?

I like to do a lot of research and I like to be really prepared, over-prepared. When you walk onto a film set and there are a few hundred professionals, it’s your job to rise to the occasion no matter what. If it’s five in the morning and you’ve had very little sleep and you’re supposed to be walking on your toes and having an emotional breakdown when you haven’t even had a cup of coffee, that’s your job. and you have to be up to it. So I prefer to prepare in advance. it is during these rehearsals that I draw threads that will guide my work. And of course, when you get up on D-Day, everything can change. But I always try to arrive with some ammunition so as not to find myself empty-handed.

Wecrashed was filmed during the pandemic. How has this changed your approach?

It was crazy because we were in New York and the city was ghostly at the time. I had a dream the other night where I was going on tour with 30 Seconds to Mars and I had to get up and do the first show. I haven’t sung for two years, and I was hoping my voice would be there. And those kinds of dreams can come true when you’re an actor. Adam Neumann gave a lot of speeches, words were his super power. And in this series, the dialogue is in a way the action.

Adam Neumann has often been described as a guru. Is this also your feeling?

I think he had a personality cult. He had enormous power within his company. People were in awe of this immigrant who came to America to build a $47 billion empire from scratch. And he was really charismatic in a world of start-ups where a lot of engineers become CEOs. Charisma is not always… They are introverted people, often people who have spent a lot of time alone coding and working. Not all CEOs have his charisma. I’ve spoken to CEOs of some of the biggest companies in the world who’ve met Adam, had meetings with him, or knew him, and they’ve said, after all that’s been said and done, that he was one of the most compelling, charismatic and confident people they had ever met.
