Ike Barinholtz Talks Mysterious ‘Suicide Squad’ Role

Comedian/Actor Ike Barinholtz has been very quiet about his upcoming role in Suicide Squad. In an interview with Buzzfeed he described what it was like working with director, David Ayer and working on the set of the film. 

Going to Suicide Squad was a very different experience. I don’t want to say it was agro-male because Margot Robbie is tougher than any of the guys, but it was just a very raucous set. David Ayer is very dark. He chases that real darkness and says crazy things to you before a take to get your head spinning. He likes to psychologically get in there. He would tell us, ‘You know on Fury, right before a scene, I almost got Shia [LaBeouf] and [Jon] Bernthal into a fistfight.’ And [I’m] like, ‘I don’t want to do that!!’ But he gets great performances out of actors and [Suicide Squad] is so big in scope. When I think of some of those sets, it’s like, This is the size of Universal Studios. It was very, very, very different.

He also stated that keeping the details of his role secret has been really challenging for him.

I have David Ayer in my head being like, ‘I’m going to kill you if you say anything,’ I can say it’s probably not who you think it is. I can say that he’s definitely someone that people will not like, and he is someone who likes to really mess with people — likes to really hurt people and [frick] them up

Even though he may have been seen as a Prison Guard in the trailer for the film I expect that he will play a much more integral role in the film and have a much more important role. It will be interesting to see a normally comedic actor take on a ruthless and dark character.

What role do you think he will play? Let us know in the comments!
