Jared Leto (Requiem for a Dream, Fight Club) will play Hephaistion, the ranking general and lifelong companion of Alexander the Great (Colin Farrell), in Oliver Stone's Alexander, reports Variety. Leto's role will reportedly provide the film's most direct insight into Alexander's omnivorous sexual appetite. He joins Angelina Jolie (as Alexander's mother) and Anthony Hopkins (as Ptolemy) in the epic film's cast.
