Shia LeBeouf, is that you under all that ink?
Director David Ayer (“Suicide Squad”) has tweeted the first look at LeBeouf in character for the indie crime thriller “The Tax Collector,” and he is barely recognizable under all the tattoos.
Plot details are bring kept under wraps, but the word “Creeper” is displayed across LeBeouf’s stomach possibly, revealing the name of his character.
