Jordan Catalano, is that you?

Jared Leto donned drag for his part in "The Dallas Buyers Club" Thursday, sporting a fur coat, black miniskirt and purple tights. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman and onetime "My So-Called Life" heartthrob plays a cross-dresser battling AIDS, his first major role since playing Mark David Chapman in "Chapter 27" in 2007.

Leto's not the only one who's undergone a striking transformation for the film. Star Matthew McConaughey has reportedly dropped roughly 30 pounds to play AIDS activist Ron Woodruff.

"I'm playing a guy who was sick and would have loved to have been healthier but wasn't. For me, it's more of a mental thing than a physical thing," McConaughey told Us Weekly in August. "I'll get down to the weight I need to get to. I'm on my way, and it's what I need to do for the job."
