As Charlie Hunnam gets cold feet about "Fifty Shades of Grey," and Focus is auditioning lesser known actors, it seems like Shia Labeouf is angling for the Christian Grey role. Why? Because one year after going full-frontal for a Sigur Ros video, the actor is up to his nude antics again by tweeting a naked picture of himself.

As Charlie Hunnam gets cold feet about "Fifty Shades of Grey," and Focus is auditioning lesser known actors, it's too bad Shia LaBeouf, who loves to let it all hang out, isn't angling for the Christian Grey role. Or is he? Because one year after going full-frontal for a Sigur Ros video, the actor is up to his nude antics again by tweeting a naked picture of himself.

The tweet is apparently to promote "Charlie Countryman," hitting theaters November 15. LaBeouf wrote: "Tune in, turn on, drop out. #CharlieCountryman 11/15." Okay then. The photo he tweeted cuts off right before his nether regions.

He's not the Adonis type, so he likely wouldn't be in the running for "Fifty Shades" in any case. Meanwhile, he's got Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac," which reportedly features LaBeouf in several graphic sex scenes (body doubles were used). Check out the NSFW posters for the film here, and "appetizer" clips herehere and here.
