Actor discusses his upcoming films.

Jared Leto has completed photography on Lord of War with Nicolas Cage and is currently filming Awake, the debut directorial effort from Joby Harold. He's acting his like a madman (figuratively speaking) and he couldn't be happier. Says Leto, "I'm really excited about the way things are going."

When it comes to choosing potential film projects, a process he's most passionate about, Leto narrows his decision down to the essentials. "I look for three things," he says. "I look for a great script, a great director and a great part. I would say the movie I just did, Alexander, it definitely falls into that category. Oliver Stone is an amazing writer, director, and I love the character of Hephaistion [Alexander's closest friend and confidant]. So everything kind of clicked. I'm really grateful for that and the opportunity."

About Lord of War's story Leto says, "It's a really, really beautiful; something that's never been on screen before. It's about an arms dealer. It's about this sale of weapons across the world and the consequences about that. It's part character piece, part social commentary, part political film. It's a really, really cool movie and a very important film in a weird way. I play Nic's brother, Vitali. We're Russian immigrants but we grew up in America. He starts selling weapons and then I get in on it and obsessed about it. We go around the world together selling weapons and I get distracted by other things. Drugs and stuff."

At the other end of the financial totem pole is the low-budget, psychological thriller Awake, written and directed by Joby Harold and costarring Fisher Stevens (Hackers, Short Circuit). The film is currently in production, shooting in New York. In it Leto plays an heir to a family fortune who develops a heart condition. It sounds like a simple drama, but the film's main premise is effectively nightmarish: can you imagine being on an operating table and your anesthetic wears off?

"It's about a young guy that goes into a hospital to get a heart transplant," says Leto. "He gets put under anesthesia, and when he goes under he realizes he can hear and feel everything, but he can't move. The doctors are ripping his heart open and pulling it out of his chest. And then, well, some other things happen but I can't talk about it. But my character in the movie, he has to go through his memories to try and figure out what's going on."

Leto admits that after appearing in so many heavily dramatic films it might be time to consider a comedy. "It might be nice to try. So far in my career, this is kind of like more masochism. What is up with that? Maybe I need a spanking."

What a naughty boy! Yes, he must have a spanking. (Where is that drooling emoticon anyway - I seem to require one of those quite often).

So, how many spankings has he been promised by this board? I guess one of us will have to rub his bottom afterward to help the sting wear off. OK, twist my arm - I'll take that job!

I liked what he said about his role in Alexander too.

Catherine - I guess the English equivalent of bottom is bum (you know, his butt!).

Yes Catherine - we could rub that too! You naughty wench.

Funny, when I read that you didn't know what I meant by bottom (at least I thought you didn't); I was thinking, well what could she have thought I meant, his feet?

I KNEW I should have put a smiley after 'rub his what?' Razz [the lust smiley] Actually we could just give him an all over massage and have done with it, then move on to Colin.

Darn you both, Adriv and Catherine!! You have both beaten me. I guess I will have to play unfair and seeing how I am here in Texas which is closer to California (where I assume they are) then both Maryland and England I shall rush out there and claim them both for myself before you can arrive. So there (sticking my tongue out at you both).
