After receiving a Golden Globe nomination Wednesday, Jared Leto‘s award buzz is growing with a Screen Actors Guild nod.

The Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman will compete in the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role category, thanks to his role in the film The Little Things. His performance is also up for the Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe.

The Little Things, which also stars Denzel Washington and Rami Malek, premiered last Friday in theaters and on HBO Max.

In addition to all the award nominations, Leto’s been making headlines this week after director Zack Snyder teased the actor/musician’s return as the Joker in the upcoming so-called “Snyder Cut” of the 2017 film Justice League. In an interview with Variety, Leto says he’s “sworn to secrecy” about the project.

“He’s an incredible filmmaker and I love his work,” Leto says of Snyder. “It was cool to have the opportunity to collaborate with him. He’s got a crazy, infectious energy. I love his passion and commitment to what he does.”

Leto previously played the Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League premieres March 18 on HBO Max.
