Shia LaBeouf Walks Off Broadway, Leaving 'Orphans' Citing 'Creative Differences'

Oft-troubled actor Shia LaBeouf normally finds himself in trouble at bars, where he notoriously and frequently finds himself in a brawl. This time around though, his problem was in a Broadway theatre, and as revealed by screen shots of emails between the actor and Alec Baldwin, Tom Sturridge and others working on the show, Orphans', he will no longer be appearing in the play.

Apparently, some of LaBeouf's acting choices were disagreeable to the producers, and there also seems to have been some kind of altercation with Baldwin. The emails are revealing, but confusing. Director Daniel Sullivan expressed his own regret about the way things turned out, saying: "I'm too old for disagreeable situations. you're one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. you are who you are. you two are incompatible. i should have known it. this one will haunt me. you tried to warn me. you said you were a different breed. i didn't get it." 

LaBeouf will be replaced by the actor Ben Foster, and the show will continue as planned and to date. Previews are set to begin on March 19th, with it opening to the public on April 7th. Orphans is a Lyle Kessler play about two brothers who kidnap a wealthy man.
