Shia LaBeouf appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman on April 1 to talk about why he was fired from the Broadway production of Orphans in February. LaBeouf addressed the tension that erupted between him and his former co-star Alec Baldwin during rehearsals. "I'm pretty passionate and impulsive, and he's a very passionate individual as well and I think that impulsiveness and passion make for some fireworks," he said. LaBeouf was dismissed from the production a week into rehearsals for what the Orphans PR team described as "creative differences," and he was replaced by Ben Foster. LaBeouf explained why he recently attended the show and sat in the front row, and if he would consider working with Baldwin in the future. Orphans opens on April 18 at the Schoenfeld Theatre.
