Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf was set to star alongside Alec Baldwin and Tom Sturridge in the Broadway production Orphans, but pulled out at the last minute. Now, it has been confirmed that Ben Foster will take over from Shia LaBeouf in the show.
Ben Foster had initially auditioned for the role, which Shia LaBeouf ended up winning, and will be delighted to now be given the chance to prove himself in the role, after Shia decided to pull out, very late on, as he reportedly did not get along with his co-star Alec Baldwin.
While Shia LaBeouf was said to be disappointed to have to leave Orphans, he did wish his replacement, Ben Foster luck, stating that he is more than capable of pulling off the role. Shia took to his official Twitter account to say, "Ben Foster is a beast. He will kill it."
Ben Foster has previously appeared on the big screen in the movies The Laramie Project and 3:10 to Yuma and has built up a very positive reputation in recent years. He is set to appear alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan in the movie Kill Your Darlings,
