Shia LaBeouf revealed on Chelsea Lately last night that he landed the lead in Lars Von Trier's upcoming film Nymphomaniac by sending the director a sex tape. "I sent him videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that's how I got the job," LaBeouf told Chelsea Handler. 

Eyes are on Nymphomaniac after Von Trier said the sexually charged film would contain footage of real, unsimulated sex. Though he's a former child star, LaBeouf has taken some particularly adult turns lately, appearing naked in Sigur Rós' video for "Fjögur Píanó" and starring in the gritty Prohibition-era flick Lawless.
