This coming March, Shia LaBeouf was scheduled to make his Broadway debut in the Dan Sullivan-directed “Orphans.” Unfortunately, the “Transformers” star had to leave due to “creative differences” and a “disagreeable situation” between him and another short-fused celebrity co-star, Alec Baldwin,

Although it sounded like a tragedy, the show must go on.

And it will, with HBO’s “Six Feet Under” actor Ben Foster replacing Shia in the play that will premiere in March 19, according to the New York Times.

Upon hearing about the casting news, Shia himself tweeted early Thursday:

BEN FOSTER IS A BEAST. HE WILL KILL IT.”
