After which he wrote an apologetic email to Orphans play writer Lyle Kessler. However the real reason for his removal was that he was arguing with his co star Alec Baldwin. He mentioned in his apologetic email to the writer of the play that Alec Baldwin hadn’t memorized the script which made him lose his temper.
During a recent magazine cover interview Alec Baldwin said that LaBeouf tries to put on a jailhouse mentality wherever he goes. Baldwin admits that he didn’t memorize the whole script during the rehearsal which had upset LaBeouf so he attacked him in front of the entire crew. So Baldwin said to director that one of them has to leave the play and it had to be decided by Sullivan and ultimately Sullivan decided to fire LaBeouf. His character was replaced by Ben Foster.
