Pete Davidson reveals he wore a 'big, uncomfortable costume' on 'The Suicide Squad' set (exclusive)
Pete Davidson has revealed that he wore "a big, uncomfortable costume" for his role in the upcoming comic film The Suicide Squad.
The comedian and Saturday Night Live actor has his first leading role in a film with this week's Judd Apatow comedy The King of Staten Island.
He has also completed filming James Gunn's superhero film - a gentle restart that ties in with David Ayer's divisive suicide squad in 2016.

"I was in a big, uncomfortable costume," he told Yahoo Movies UK when asked what the main differences between his two most recent film projects were.
"I think that would make a big difference. I have to hold glocks and the like. "

Despite the very different scope of the two film projects, Davidson said they were actually "very similar" when it came to how much he enjoyed being on the set.
The 26-year-old star said: “It was really fun to work with both of them, everyone was very open and honest and the cast and crew were just so much fun.
"To be honest, I was very lucky to have had great experiences with both films."

They join recurring actors, including Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg.

In The King of Staten Island, Davidson plays a 20-year-old lazy-head who, years after his firefighter's death, is in arrested development with his mother (Marisa Tomei).
The film, which he wrote together with Apatow and Dave Sirus, has had a personal response for the star, since he lost his own firefighter on September 11th.
