    • Was it fairly easy and understandable? Would you recommend an 18 year old to try it out or is it geared towards more of an older audience? Are they looking for any youthful extras? Not that I am implying I am young, I feel old for a young adult lol

  1. Shia LaBeouf would be just perfect as the very young Liberace if it could be worked out somehow.
    He would be a dead ringer as far as facial appearance but would have to have tons of humility to act as sensative and engaging as young Liberace. It certainly would be playing against character for Shia.
    Labeouf to stretch himself so far too.
