New 'Nymphomaniac' Clip Features Shia LaBeouf Far Removed From The 'Transformers' World

Posted: Updated:

Will Shia LaBeouf actually blow us all away with his performance in the Lars von Trier sex movie "Nymphomaniac"? A short new clip from the film sort of makes it feel that way. The actor seems to have been transported into a persona unlike any we've seen him take on before -- a young David Brent? -- even if that's not especially hard with a résumé that centers on "Transformers" and "Indiana Jones" sequels.

LaBeouf dons slicked-back hair, a soft accent and '70s-friendly office garb in the new clip, from the film's second chapter, named after his character Jerome. The scene also features Stacy Martin, who portrays a younger version of Charlotte Gainsbourg's title character. We now know LaBeouf and Martin will also engage in a steamy sex scene during the "Jerome" portion of the movie.

This marks the second clip we've seen from "Nymphomaniac," the first having been an uncomfortably creepy look at a sexual seduction. The new teaser lacks the overt sexuality, but its undertones are striking nonetheless. LaBeouf does a superb job at fostering a wordless sleaziness.

"Nymphomaniac" also stars Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe, Stellan Skarsgård, Christian Slater and Connie Nielsen. Its U.S. release date has yet to be officialized.
