Angry Actor Shia LaBeouf Is Playing Angry Tennis Star John McEnroe

Game, set, expletive. Shia LaBeouf has signed on to star as the original tennis baddie John McEnroe in Borg/McEnroe, opposite Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason as his fiercest rival, Björn Borg. As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the biopic “will trace the long-running battle for supremacy in the tennis world in the 1970s and 1980s” between the ferocious McEnroe and the cool-as-a-cucumber Borg, who memorably faced each other in two consecutive Wimbledon finals in the early ’80s. We have a feeling the film won’t quite be like 7 Days in Hell.
