When you think of an alt band, the last thing you'd equate with the hard-hitting drummer known as "Shanimal" is that he'd have his own blend of coffee, but that's exactly what Shannon Leto of Thirty Seconds to Mars has done with his Black Fuel Trading Co.
Why coffee? "I grew up around it," he said. His grandfather, who was Spanish and helped raise Leto and his younger brother Oscar-winner Jared Leto in Louisiana, was a very intense man who was very serious about his coffee.
"I would watch him make it, it was his morning ritual and he wouldn't let anyone mess with it because it had to be made exactly the way he wanted," Leto said. "He had a chicory blend which I will try to recreate in his honor."

Drake and Jared Leto go under the microscope on today's episode of Ellen when they play "Never Have I Ever" with the host -- and the results are super revealing. Like, has either one of them ever hooked up with a fan on tour? Have they ever sent a naked selfie or waxed something on their body? The answers might, or might not, surprise you.

Jared Leto is not just an actor. When he immerses himself in his characters, he is also a writer, a detective, a psychiatrist. His creative process is built on asking questions. The kernel of truth that will ultimately lead him to a character could be anywhere, behind any face or within any memory. Jared believes that questions underlie the life of any creator, and finding the answers is not enough; you have to fight for the right to own them.

Hope springs eternal in the Great Plains
It’s springtime in the Great Plains. Heavy snow and harsh winter temperatures give way to returning songbirds and wildflowers. But one creature in this great American landscape is supremely adapted to its extremes. Through centuries of ice, snow and freezing cold, the mighty bison have survived in this environment of extremes.
Few other animals have shaped an environment so fully. Bison numbering in the tens of millions roamed widely across North America for generations, sharing this landscape with prehistoric beasts like mammoths.

The Academy Award winner takes method to another level in the upcoming summer release
It’s no easy feat to take on a comic book character that’s been immortalized in cinema by the likes of Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger with performances so riveting, Ledger’s turn landed him a posthumous Oscar. So it was only with a deep commitment that Jared Leto, himself an Oscar winner for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, would take on the Joker part in Warner Bros.’ upcoming summer release Suicide Squad, a part he and director David Ayer redefined for today’s audience.
“The Joker has a lot of different looks, sort of built from the looks throughout the history of DC Comics but with a new sort of flair and flavor on him so he does feel like a modern-day gangster, because… he’s always been a gangster,” says Ayer.

In between Batman v Superman’s dreary vibe and reports (later denied) that Suicide Squad was undergoing reshoots to add more humor, the tone of the upcoming DC Comics antihero assemblage has become a hot topic. Will Squad be that much lighter than BvS? Is it as funny as the first trailers suggest?
“It’s definitely concentrated on a certain amount of levity set into a serious, harsh reality,” star Will Smith, who plays marksman Deadshot, told Yahoo Movies on the Warner Bros. press line at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. “So what [director] David Ayer did that was really good is he didn’t allow us to be in a comic-book movie. You’re playing this character, but this character has real ideas, has real feelings. So he set us firmly into this authentic world, but then allowed for the comedy.
