I kept thinking Leto was in Tron, too. Your answer to the problem seems plausible. He looked like a Tron character in Blade Runner and his part in Blade Runner could be confused with Cillian Murphy's character in Tron: Legacy.

Speaking of Cillian Murphy, his cameo in Legacy was to set him up as the villain of Ascension. Is it safe to assume that will not happen in Ares?

I enjoyed Tron: Legacy a great deal too. It had a dream like quality to it. Not expecting anything from the director of Maleficent and one of those abhorrent Pirates movies though.

Why is Leto on so many shitlists? He's not an actor I seek out, but he was really good in Dallas Buyers Club, Requiem for a Dream, Mr. Nobody and Prefontaine. Morbius and his Joker weren't that great and I don't like his music, but that doesn't make him a turn off to me.

for me it's just that he has such a punchable face.

I'm in for the spectacle alone, which has always been my favorite thing about the first two, but I am fully prepared to be disappointed by the soundtrack.

I keep seeing people say that Leto has a thing for underage girls and want him held to account for that.

I'm not much of a fan of Leto, either. The roles I can recall range from "did fine" to "hated it", nothing has really made me think he was something worth seeking out. I'll watch any Tron movie, but my interest is lessened with Leto as a primary role.

I think Leto is fine as an actor, but more as a secondary character, like the creep in The Little Things.
