Ben Foster to Replace Shia LaBeouf on Broadway

Actor Ben Foster attends the Jen Kao fall 2013 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Skylight Studios at Moynihan Station on February 9, 2013 in New York City.

The 3:10 to Yuma and Messenger actor bravely joins Orphans only a day after Shia LaBeouf left the show in a mysterious, Esquire-plagiarizing huff. In other Orphans news: Shia's exit may have had something to do with his decision to punch through a door during rehearsals, and Alec Baldwin, LaBeouf's co-star and supposed nemesis, gave the following quote to the Times: "You realize in the process, theater is not for everyone." Yikes. Good luck, Ben Foster!
