It looks like Transformers star Shia LaBeouf is getting a bonus for his next gig. The 26-year-old former child star has signed on to star in The Nymphomaniac. And as part of his new job, LaBeouf's very hands-on role calls for him to take part in real sex scenes. In an interview with MTV News, LaBeouf gave a blow-by-blow depiction as to how filming for the upcoming Lars von Trier film will go. The actor explains: "[The movie] is what you think it is. For instance, there's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we're doing it for real. Everything that is illegal, we'll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening." LaBeouf, a former Disney star, admits that he has his reservations about tackling such an intense role under von Trier's lead. He says: "[Von Trier] is very dangerous. He's the most dangerous dude that I've ever showed up for. I'm terrified. I'm so terrified, which is why I have to go. We'll see what happens." According to Us Magazine, there will be two versions of the flesh flick which will also star Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman and Charlotte Gainsbourg. LaBeouf likely isn't worried about any performance anxiety. He dropped his drawers recently in the music video "Fjogur Piano" by Sigur Ros.
