“Suicide Squad” star Jai Courtney chased director David Ayer in the nude on set during production, and Conan O’Brien showed his audience a photo to prove it.
“It might’ve happened,” the actor, who played Captain Boomerang in the film, said on “Conan” on Thursday night. “He used to pay visits to us in our trailers … he would just rock up uninvited … He came into my trailer one day and I must’ve not have any clothes on. I probably just took a shower because we had been under a rain tower. I’m sure there was a logical reason to … I get a lot of things done naked.”
He added, “He comes in and I’m an impulsive dude, so I went after him! Jay Hernandez, who plays Diablo in the movie, I could hear behind me saying, ‘Sic ‘em, boy.’ You gotta go with one of these things. The moment happened.”
O’Brien debuted a picture in which Courtney can be seen fully in the nude running after Ayer.
“I’m just wondering who I’ve got to kill now for dropping that,” Courtney joked.
Courtney wasn’t the only jokester on the set of “Suicide Squad,” which opened in August and grossed $325 million domestically. Jared Leto, who played The Joker in the film, gave his costars anal beads and used condoms to get into the role of the famous character.
“I did a lot of things to create a dynamic, to create an element of surprise, spontaneity,” Leto said. “If you really break down any kind of wall that may be there .. I mean, the Joker is somebody who doesn’t really respect things like personal space or boundaries.”
