Shia LaBeouf disputes Orphans creative differences

Feb 21 2013, 5:36am CST | by

Shia LaBeouf has departed the cast of 'Orphans' due to "creative differences" - a claim he appears to dispute.

The 26-year-old actor was due to make his Broadway debut alongside Alec Baldwin in the production - which tells the tale of two orphaned brothers who grow to regard a gangster they attempt to kidnap as a father figure - but producers say he has parted ways with the show after a week of rehearsals.

However, in an apparent attempt to deny he had been involved in any such "differences", Shia took to Twitter to post a series of emails exchanged between himself, Alec and the production's director Dan Sullivan.

The message from Dan read: "I'm too old for disagreeable situations. You're one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. You are who you are. You two are incompatible. I should have known it. This one will haunt me. You tried to warn me. You said you were a different breed. I didn't get it."

The 'Transformers' star then posted the email he sent Alec, which was entitled "apology" and read: "A man can tell you he was wrong ... He can apologies, even if sometimes its just to put an end to the bickering. Alec, I'm sorry for my part of a disagreeable situation."

Alec's response read: "I've been through this before. It's been a while. And perhaps some of the particulars are different. But it comes down to the fact that what we all do now is critical. Perhaps especially for you."

"I don't have an unkind word to say about you. You have my word."

The email was accompanied by Shia's return message: "Same. be well. good luck on the play. you'll be great. (sic)"

And it seems other cast members are confused by the situation.

Tweeting several hours later, Shia wrote: "Depth of friendship does not depend on length of acquaintance. Tom = good dude - good actor. (sic)"

It was accompanied by a message from Tom Sturridge which read: "I don't really know what to write. I went in this afternoon and they were all there ... producers, etc. I said my piece but they didn't really listen. I don't understand what has happened here. Maybe you have had a more enlightening conversation with someone by now.

"All I can say is that it truly was an honour to work with you even if it was only for a few days. I was stunned by the work you were doing, the performance you were giving. I think you lifted the play to a place higher than maybe it even deserved to be ... Hope you're ok brother. (sic)"
