The ‘Transformers’ star is surely taking his acting to the next level. Aside from having sex for real in a video for Icelandic band Sigur Ros, Shia LaBeouf is set to make his Broadway debut with Lyle Kessler’s 1983 drama about a pair of parentless siblings.
Producers of “Orphans” announced Tuesday that LaBeouf will join Alec Baldwin on stage in the spring. The 26-year-old actor will reportedly play Treat, a man who resorts to criminal behavior to supports his dim-witted brother Phillip.
“30 Rock” Emmy winner Baldwin will portray a wealthy older man Treat kidnaps.
“Orphans” marks Baldwin’s first Broadway role since 2004, when he acted up as a stage director in a revival of the 1932 comedy, “Twentieth Century.” The role of Phillip has not been cast, so it will be announced later.
Preview performances of “Orphans” are scheduled on March 19, then opens April 7 at the Schoenfeld Theatre.
