And the show goes on!
Orphans new lead is Ben Foster!
Woohoo! That dude is delightfully
He stars next to the charmingly cranky Alec Baldwin and we sincerely hope there are no "creative differences" between them!!

Shia, for his part, took the news well.
He endorsed Ben wholeheartedly via Twitter, saying:
BEN FOSTER IS A BEAST. HE WILL KILL IT.

Orphans should open as planned on April 7.
