Jared Leto is exploring movie roles following the success of 'Dallas Buyers Club'.
The 42-year-old actor - who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of transsexual AIDS victim Rayon - took a six-year break from Hollywood to work on his music career with band 30 Seconds To Mars and is planning to make a comeback following the success of the biographical drama.
Talking to the Associated Press, he explained: "I'm looking at scripts and reading scripts. Which is interesting because I didn't read scripts for years before 'Dallas Buyers Club'.
"But now you have opportunities to work with people that you really respect or admire, people whose work has been inspiring and influential."
Leto is also contemplating helming a film when he has the "right" story to tell.
He enthused: "I think that would be really great. And when I have the right story to tell I'll certainly do that."
