Viola Davis Reportedly Joins "Suicide Squad" As Amanda Waller
"How to Get Away with Murder" star, Viola Davis, has reportedly been cast as Amanda Waller in the upcoming "Suicide Squad" film!

It would seem that the Suicide Squad cast is rounding out quite nicely with Viola Davis reportedly landing the role of Amanda Waller.

According to The Latino Review, the How to Get Away with Murder star will be playing the conniving and headstrong leader of the Suicide Squad, opposite already-announced stars Jared Leto, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and more.

The only catch to Davis’ inclusion in the film is that the filmmakers have to be able to work around her TV schedule, which doesn’t sound like it’s going to be any small feat, especially considering how big a hit How to Get Away with Murder has ended up being.

Oprah Winfrey and Davis’ The Help co-star, Octavia Spencer, were reportedly also in consideration for the role.

Suicide Squad will open in theatres on August 5, 2016.
