Right after the producers of the Broadway play Orphans flushed down the turd from their lives by firing Shia LaDouche for being Shia LaDouche, he tweeted screen shots of a bunch of e-mails between him and the cast and crew including one where he plagiarized an Esquire article. Alec Baldwin isn’t the one to keep his lips shut about fuckery like this, so pulled off his leather gloves finger by finger and slapped Shia’s face back and forth for being a know-it-all theater bitch. Here’s what Alec said about Shia to Vulture yesterday:
“I can tell you that, in all honesty, I don’t think he’s in a good position to be giving interpretations of what the theater is and what the theater isn’t. I mean, he was never in the theater. He came into a rehearsal room for six or seven days and, uh — you know, sometimes film actors — I mean, there are people who are film actors who have a great legacy in the theater. Some of the greatest movie stars had really serious theater careers and still do. And many film actors, though, who are purely film actors, they’re kind of like celebrity chefs, you know what I mean? You hand them the ingredients, and they whip it up, and they cook it, and they put it on a plate, and they want a round of applause. In the theater, we don’t just cook the food and serve it. You go out in the garden and you plant the seeds and you grow it. You know, it’s a really very, very long, slow, deliberate — it’s the opposite of film acting. It’s a much more intensive and kind of thoughtful process. And there are people who that’s just not their thing. So for those people who I think it’s not their thing, I’m not really interested in their opinion of it. But thanks.”
With that, Shia should’ve taken his bow, exited stage left and continued on with his Lean Cuisine of a movie career, but since his nipples get hard from screwing with Alec Baldwin, he’s keeping the foolery going. This morning, Shia tweeted screen shots of e-mails between him and the play’s director Daniel Sullivan as well as e-mails between him and Alec. Here’s one that Daniel Sullivan supposedly sent to Shia on February 10th:
“Don’t be too surprised if Alec doesn’t look up from his script much for the first few days. I suspect he’s not nearly as prepared as you are. Not unusual at all when actors have a good long rehearsal time like we have. I just don’t want it to throw you. I did a reading of another play once with Alec and about 10 minutes in I thought, ‘Oh, I guess he’s just going to read it.'”
And here’s an exchange between Shia, Alec and Daniel:
Alec – That was supposed to read: We start Monday. But I’m so fucking tired.
Shia – I’m a hustler. I don’t get tired. I’m 26, chief.
Alec – Listen, boy. I’m not your fuckin’ chief. You got that? Ha. Hahahahaha. Let’s go.
Shia – Yes, sir.
Daniel – I think he’s nervous.
Fuck that Orphans shit. They should turn these e-mails into a Broadway play, because this is where the real theatrical drama is at. They can call it “I’m Not Your Fuckin’ Chief.” And “I’m a hustler, I don’t get tired” sounds like a lyric from the rap song that Justin Bieber will eventually release.
Even though this is the most entertaining thing that Shia has ever been a part of, he should still squash his beef with Alec Baldwin the way all grown men squash beefs (Side note: Not that it has to do with anything, but “Beef Squasher” is John Travolta’s Scientology bath house nickname): with a game of Words with Friends. Take it to the WWF board, chief!
And here’s LaDouche leaving a gym in NYC the other day.
