Common Rocks Tats and Piercings for Suicide Squad

Common Rocks Tats and Piercings for Suicide Squad

The Oscar winner looks harder than ever for his new role.

Published June 13, 2015

We've seen Common rock hoodies, khakis from the Gap, and many, many newsboy caps, but we've never seem him look the way he does for his upcoming film Suicide Squad. The Oscar winner was spotted by TMZ in costume for the supervillain movie, covered in tattoos, a septum piercing and a red goatee.


While Common's role in the film is being kept tightly under wraps, speculation has it that he's playing the Green Lantern villain Abel Tarrant, also known as The Tattooed Man. Suicide Squad, in case you didn't know, is about a band of villains recruited by the government to administer covert operations that would cost them their lives.

Will Smith also stars in the ensemble action movie, playing the role of Floyd Lawton, AKA Deadshot, a highly-skilled mercenary who is a well-known enemy to Batman.

While Common and Smith certainly look like badasses for the film, we certainly look forward to seeing them return to their clean-cut selves. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
