Inside the CW’s Upfront: Jared Leto in Hot Pants, a Sunday Shill and ‘Riverdale’ Fever

Inside the CW’s Upfront: Jared Leto in Hot Pants, a Sunday Shill and ‘Riverdale’ Fever:


The Star Power | Jared Leto and his brother Shannon, the pair behind Thirty Seconds to Mars, opened The CW show. “This is not rock and roll hours — at all,” he said of the 11 a.m. start time, adding: “Hitting those high notes is a bit of a stretch.”

And Jared Leto performed, while admitting it was hard to hit some of the notes in his song, due to it being only 11 AM which, he admonished, “is not rock and roll hours at all.”

Here is how it went, on ET time:

11:03 AM: CW presentation begins, per tradition, with a music performance. This year it’s Thirty Seconds to Mars.

“We’re the early morning breakfast band!” lead singer Jared Leto jokes after first number. “I’ll tell you, this not rock and roll hours at all… I hope you had your coffee and espresso and egg sandwich.”

Before his second song, Walk on Water, he tells the ad execs it’s okay “If you want to get a little crazy – but I know you got your suits on.”

Looks like he took them to church.

Jared Leto Forever

Jared Leto Forever:

You once described your house as the “poor man’s Playboy Mansion.” Do you have a good story about the mansion?

I don’t. I don’t know why I would have said that. Because my house is basically the most boring place—unless you love to work.

It’s a former military base. I heard the handyman quit because he saw a ghost.

Yeah, a few people have had an encounter with a ghost at the base. I don’t really pay attention to that stuff. I don’t believe in ghosts, but the place talks.

It talks?

It’s so big. It’s so windy. I’ve heard noises; I’ve heard whispering; I’ve heard people walking. I remember around Christmas, I was the only person around for a week or two. There was someone walking through the place one night. I was locked in my room. In the afternoon, my assistant came to me and said, “Do you have a guest in the guest bedroom?” I said, “No.” She said, “Oh my God, there’s somebody in there!” We had to call the police. The person was disturbed and confused. That’s happened three or four times just in the past year.
