It seems like every young actor who stars on the Disney Channel… tries very hard to stray away from that image. Miley Cyrus has done it, so has Vanessa Hudgens.
Now Shia LaBeouf continues to try to do the very same thing. After Shia starred on Even Stevens when he was a young teen, he has since starred in films like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Transformers, but his next film will be as far from the Disney image as one can go. Shia is in talks to star in an erotic film!
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Shia is interested in starring in Lars von Trier's drama Nymphomaniac. This movie will star Charlotte Gainsbourg as we follow her adventures from youngster to age 50. The story will be told by her husband, played by Stellan Skarsgård. Could Shia be interested in playing one of her lovers?
Shia may have been readying himself for this type of production when he appeared in the Sigur Rós music video completely naked. But how much will we end up seeing of Shia if he joins the Nymphomaniac cast? The Wrap reports that the director plans on releasing two versions: one that is graphic… and the other not so much.
The film is set to start production in September! Would you like to see Shia sign on?
