Shia LaBeouf's Broadway Twitter Meltdown

OK, truth be told--I've never liked Shia. I think he's talented, and had a hard childhood--but something about him (unfairly I guess) has always really rubbed me the wrong way.

Anyway, he was set to star in a revival on Broadway of Orphans, a really great play (and not so great movie) with Alec Baldwin. Alec is pretty notoriously hard to work with, as well, but Shia has been dropped--and has taken to bizarre rants on his official twitter--or more to the point posting his private emails on it... (Sulyboy is the email of the director)

Right after that he tweeted a NYTimes piece about Alec Baldwin's issues with Broadway star Jann Maxwell...



And from his fellow co-star

His audition piece he posted (who records and uploads their stage audition piece?) is actually not bad, I'm loathe to admit. But just the fact he'd post private messages to his twitter (including one where he seems to say he's ok with Baldwin--and then to post something right after about how he isn't...) Wasn't he let go of the Lars Trier film he was bragging about doing "porn" in?

i see a lot of actors auditions uploaded, actually. yes famous ones too, even for broadway. search youtube, they are easy to find. I think they are supposed to set them as private/password only to easily send to casting but dont or something, i know a lot of reality and tv shows do that.

hes very odd. he has a very sad, dark childhood and is just out there and not a people person it seems.

and yes, he was let go. then he did that porn music video.

I totally agree with bolded. For me, it started with my friend's description of him in that Ben Affleck Project Greenlight series. He sounded like a little [!@#$%^&*] to me, and I (unfairly?) just trusted her opinion and it stuck. He got older and demonstrated some more dislikeable behavior anyway, so...

Another person I feel similarly about is Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He gets props from critics and fans alike, and all I can think of are my friend's stories of him being a total prick when they did a movie together when they were young.

Fair and rational or not, I can be a very unforgiving fan/comsumer when I hear about the unsavory qualities of actors.

By the way, I think I blew an optic nerve trying to read the message from the co-star. Cliff's Notes, please?
