WATCH Shia's Creepy Character In 'Nymphomaniac'

Here's the first look at Shia LaBeouf's acting chops, accent and all, in Lars von Trier's sexually charged, non-simulated film, Nymphomaniac -- and just in this one-minute clip, LaBeouf's character Jerome is creeping out the ladies.
Titled "Chapter 2: Jerome" (there are nine chapters in the movie), we see a corporate-casual Jerome showing a female, the younger Joe (Stacy Martin), around the office. When the two are alone in the elevator, the smarmy Jerome hits the emergency button and pretends that the elevator is broken.
This isn't the only snippet revealed for Nymphomaniac this week. A NSFW (Not Safe For Work) photo of young Joe and Jerome engaging in sexual activity was also released. The older Joe is played by Charlotte Gainsbourg, who also starred in Von Trier's 2011 film Melancholia.
The NC-17 movie is told through the voice of a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her erotic experiences to the man who saved her after a beating. The film has yet to nail down a U.S. release date but looks to be hitting theaters internationally in late December.
