According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shia LaBeouf is in talks to take a role in Lars von Trier’s next film, “Nymphomaniac. Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgard are already set to star.
Here’s the description of the plot:
Nymphomaniac” is the wild and poetic story of a woman’s erotic journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe.
On a cold winter’s evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman, finds Joe beaten up in an alleyway. He brings her home to his flat where he tends to her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushly branched-out and multi faceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.
Did the phrase “from Milan to Msink” cross anyone else’s mind while reading that?
LaBeouf has “Lawless” and Robert Redford’s “The Company You Keep” coming out this fall, and recently finished filming “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.”
There are many things I don’t understand in life, and one of them is Shia LaBeouf. I honestly don’t get the appeal. He doesn’t seem particularly good looking, he doesn’t have dazzling charisma, and as an actor I’d rate him as average and professional, as in he’s been in the business long enough to know how to say his lines and hit his mark. Obviously I’m missing something, because he keeps on working. I need a very detailed and thoughtful infographic that will explain to me why Shia LaBeouf keeps getting cast in reasonably high quality movies.
