Shia LaBeouf Auditions for the lead role in “Orphans”
Last year Shia Labeouf was one of the biggest actors in Hollywood. He was cast as one of the lead actors in the broadway play “Orphans” alongside Alec Baldwin.
Shia LaBeouf plays the role of a thief Treat, a young man who kidnaps Alec Baldwin’s character and holds him hostage.
But, things did not go so well for the “Transformers” actor. As The New York Times points out, LaBeouf was fired from the set after a disagreement with Alec Baldwin.
When rehearsals began in February, the divergent acting styles of Mr. LaBeouf and Mr. Baldwin quickly became apparent; the two actors proved “incompatible,” Mr. Sullivan wrote in an e-mail to Mr. LaBeouf that the actor posted on Twitter after his firing.
There are reports that during rehearsals, things would get so overwhelming for LaBeouf that he punched a hole through a door.
The play would open in April of 2013 and then close on May of 2013 following weak ticket sales. Regardless, this one hour audition illustrates how good of an actor Shia LaBeouf really is and despite his public outbursts, he is extremely talented.
