Shia LaBeouf scores role with sex tape

Los Angeles - Shia LaBeouf sent sex tapes to director Lars von Trier to get his role in Nymphomaniac.

The 26-year-old actor claims he showcased a different aspect of his talents to the filmmaker by sending Von Trier intimate footage of himself and his girlfriend in order to land a role in the forthcoming movie, which is expected to include scenes of real sex.

According to Huffington Post, Shia appeared on the popular E! talk show Chelsea Lately and said: "I don't know what it's gonna be until I get out there.

He will make the cast do everything

"I know he's a very dangerous director, I know we're trying to do something different. It's not your typical film. It's about what it's about. I sent him videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that's how I got the job."

Shia has previously said Lars will make the cast do everything "for real" in the movie, and anything too explicit will be "blurred".

"[The movie] is what you think it is. It is Lars von Trier, making a movie about what he's making. 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," Shia said.

Two versions of the film, with one more explicit than the other, will be released.
