Viola Davis at the 87th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsFinally, the Oscars red carpet was good for more than finding out what everyone's wearing. One enterprising red carpet reporter for eTalk asked Viola Davis about the rumors she's joining "Suicide Squad" as Amanda Waller, and the "How to Get Away with Murder" star confirmed it. (For the record, she also looked absolutely stunning in her Oscar frock.)

Davis will be joiningMargot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Jai Courtney as Boomerang. WB is still looking to cast Rick Flagg after Tom Hardy dropped out of the role in January. WB hasn't confirmed Davis's statement, but we trust "The Wall," don't you?

"Suicide Squad" is slated for release on August 5, 2016. David Ayer ("Fury," "End of Watch") is directing. [Via EW]
