Boston’s Ben Foster replacing Shia LaBeouf

Boston-born Ben Foster is replacing Shia LaBeouf in the Broadway production “Orphans,” which starts previews next month. Foster joined after LaBeouf confirmed that he had left the cast by tweeting e-mails between himself and his costars, Alec Baldwin and Tom Sturridge, about “creative differences” with Baldwin. Not long after the announcement of his replacement was made, LaBeouf tweeted, “BEN FOSTER IS A BEAST. HE WILL KILL IT.”
