Shia LaBoeuf seems like a little punk, and we all know by now that Alec Baldwin has some rage issues. So when the two were cast in the same Broadway play, “Orphan,” things were bound to get explosive.

But after just one week after rehearsals, LaBoeuf reportedly punched a wall and quit the play because of a ”disagreeable situation” with Baldwin.

Representatives for the production said in a statement to the New York Times Wednesday, “Due to creative differences, the producers of ‘Orphans’ and Shia LaBeouf will be parting ways and he will not be continuing with the production.”

LaBeouf posted a series of cryptic tweets and emails between himself, Baldwin and the play’s director Daniel Sullivan.

Sullivan wrote in an email to LaBeouf, “I’m too old for disagreeable situations. You’re one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. You are who you are. You two are incompatible. I should have known it.”

He continued, “This one will haunt me. You tried to warn me. You said you were a different breed. I didn’t get it.” 

Although LaBeouf allegedly put his hand through a wall because he was so enraged with Baldwin, LaBeouf posted an email he received from from Baldwin that shows that there are no hard feelings between the two hot heads.

Baldwin wrote nonsensically, “When the change comes, how do we handle it, whether it be good or bad? What do we learn? I don’t have an unkind word to say about you. You have my word.”
