Actor Jared Leto has slowly been growing a cult-like following for the last several years. What's his endgame? You know him from his films throughout the 90s, 2000s, leading up to today, as well as from his band 30 Seconds to Mars. Did you also know that, for the last several years, he's invited thousands of people to a large gathering that happens on a remote Island in some exotic area of the world? They started out as basically music festivals, but slowly they have morphed into something different. Leto dresses in flowing white robes and speaks to crowds of thousands, preaching nebulous philosophies about life and the universe. They've become less and less about music and more like...a literal cult? On this episode of Deep Cuts, we explore Jared Leto's Mars Island events and get to the bottom of whether or not he's trying to become a cult leader.
