Shia LaBeouf to make his Broadway debut opposite Alec Baldwin

By Gina DiFalco,

Shia LaBeouf will go from action franchise lead to indie film actor to making his Broadway debut.

The actor has landed his first Broadway show, starring opposite 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin in Lyle Kessler’s Orphans.

LaBeouf will play a thief who kidnaps Baldwin’s character with his sibling that he’s looking after, and the three form an unlikely bond.

The Wrap reports that the production will be directed by Tony-award winner Daniel Sullivan. It started out as a play in 1983 and in 1987, a film version was made by Alan J. Pakula, which starred Albert Finney, Matthew Modine and Kevin Anderson.

Orphans will start its performances on March 19, 2013 but its officially opening date at the Schoenfeld Theatre is April 7, 2013.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that LaBeouf’s latest film is Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac. He’s also been in the Transformers films, Lawless, The Company You Keep and The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.
