Shia LeBeouf — of Transformers fame — is out to prove he’s a serious actor. And his methods are making headlines.
His choice was inspired by the work of Sean Penn, who supposedly sat in the electric chair when filming Dead Man Walking.
So acting like you are on acid isn’t a choice for a serious actor? You actually take acid instead?
Where’s the acting in that?
Contrast that decision to the recent experience of Isla Fisher, who stars in the movie Bachelorette, which opens next Friday.
She — and all the actresses in the film — would spin in place until right before action was caused. When the camera began to roll, they were dizzy and off balance, which simulated the feeling of being high.
Wow — it was like they were acting like drunks…instead of simply getting trashed during filming. Someone should tell Shia.
Although…there goes his excuse to drop acid.
