They become involved in a kidnapping of a rich older man, Harold, played by Alec Baldwin. The play is due to open in previews on March 19 and open officially on April 7.

Shia LaBeouf has a message for moviegoers out to see "Lawless" this weekend: There's more to it than just violence.

I mean, yes, it's blood and guts stuff and you've got that. There's stuff for the boys, but you've also got two really interesting love stories happening simultaneously of this."
Shia LaBeouf packed on about 40 pounds to play Jack Bondurant in the gangster film "Lawless," and the actor, who became a heartthrob thanks to his role in the "Transformers" franchise, says the process of his weight gain made him feel like "quite an ugly person" - on the inside.
