Jake Gyllenhaal and Margot Robbie Talk Playing Wild Characters in 'Okja,' 'Suicide Squad'

Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays the zany Dr. Johnny in “Okja,” and Margot Robbie, who plays the popular villain Harley Quinn in “Suicide Squad,” shared thoughts on character acting during Variety‘s “Actors on Actors.”

“It’s so weird when people want to know about you because you’re like, wait, my whole job is not being me. Me? I don’t know, I’m boring. But, like, these characters are amazing, ask about them,” she said. “Harley’s one of those insane characters and people do seem to really like her, so I hope I get to keep playing her.”

The seventh season of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors,” presented by Google Home, will air from Jan. 2 to Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. on PBS SoCal KOCE.
