Jared Leto’s Profession & Career

Leto relocated to Los Angeles in 1992 to seek a career in directing while also performing on the side. His first break came in 1994 when he was cast alongside Claire Danes as Jordan Catalano, her love interest, in the short-lived but well-received ABC adolescent drama My So-Called Life. Despite being canceled after one season, the show garnered a cult following for its portrayal of puberty. The same year, Leto made his television film debut in Cool and the Crazy, co-starring with Alicia Silverstone and scored his first feature part in the 1995 drama How to Make an American Quilt. He later co-starred in The Last of the High Kings (1996) with Christina Ricci and had a supporting role in Switchback (1997).

Leto played Olympic candidate Steve Prefontaine in the 1997 movie Prefontaine. Leto immersed himself in the life of a runner to prepare for the part, exercising for six weeks and meeting with members of his family and friends. He had a striking resemblance to the actual Prefontaine, including his voice and erect running technique.


His performance earned favorable reviews from critics and is widely regarded as his breakthrough role. “With captivating blue eyes and filthy blond hair, Leto embodies the rock-star image Prefontaine portrayed, and he appears natural in blazing performances on the track, as well as off, where Pre portrayed a rude, aggressive approach,” wrote Peter Stack of the San Francisco Chronicle.

After playing a British aristocracy in the 1998 drama Basil, Leto participated in the horror film Urban Legend. Most critics panned it, yet it was a financial success. Terrence Malick cast Leto in a supporting part in The Thin Red Line that year, starring Sean Penn and Adrien Brody. It received largely positive feedback and was a moderate success. It won numerous honors and nominations, including seven Academy Award nods; Leto and the rest of the cast shared a Satellite Award.
