Even Cameron Crowe, who wrote 1982's "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," was impressed with Shia LaBeouf's performance as stoner Jeff Spicoli in the recent virtual, all-star charity reading of the script. In the reading, put together to benefit Sean Penn's COVID charity, LaBeouf had Penn, the original Spicoli, are in stitches. Crowe called his performance "wild and brave" in an interview in Variety, adding that the actor "Tore up the room, too. It just brought everybody to a place of giddiness, that made the whole thing work, for me."

Now LaBouef is likely to go viral again with his latest project — a video collaboration with actress/singer Rainey Qualley and her actress-sister Margaret.

The 10-minute short film (seen below) features Shia and Margaret in a sexy, "pas de deux" that depicts a relationship described by the title of Rainey's latest song, "Love Me Like You Hate Me."

"The split-screen video shows Margaret, 26, and Shia, 34, embroiled in an intense relationship featuring some particularly raw sex scenes," writes The Daily Mail.

The split-screen follows the couple repeating similar scenarios — one by day, one by night, that reflect the couple, first having sex, followed by a falling out that sends Shia into the street to bang his hands against a neighboring garage. It ends like it begins, with the couple stripping down and getting on the bed again, suggesting the cycle will continue. The action, which features elegant, stylized choreography by LA-based JA Collective, plays against Rainey Qualley's plaintiff, synthesized vocal.

Rainey's captioned a social media posting by noting the range of emotions the art piece explores and how close to her heart it is.

"Please watch it. It's filled with love and pain and tenderness and rage and real pieces of my heart," she wrote.

But what will likely bring viewers back multiple times will be to play a game of "Find Shia's Peen." Throughout the sex sequences, the film's creator Luke Turner and cinematographer Natasha Braier artfully conceal LaBeouf; but there is a second-or-two 55 seconds in that you catch a shadowy glimpse.

The video must have been made prior to LaBeouf's recent arm injury, which the paparazzi caught in a recent run,reported the Daily Mail.


"On Wednesday the 34-year-old went for a shirtless jog around his neighborhood in Los Angeles as he flashed his massive 'Creeper' torso tattoo and braced right hand," writes the Daily Mail

"The method actor put his chiseled physique on display showcasing his toned arms and six pack while working up a sweat."

The reason for his the cast on his arm have not been revealed, but it hasn't kept the actor from hitting the streets in Pasadena with photographers in tow.
