The film in question, ‘The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman,’ which hit theaters on December 31, 2012.

“I remember sending Evan tapes. I remember trying to conjure this (drug-addicted character) and sending tapes and Evan being like, ‘Yeah, that’s good, but that’s not, but this is, but that ain’t (sic).’ Not like she’s the expert on set. I’m just saying you reach out to friends and you sort of gauge where you’re at. So I was sending tapes around,” Shia shared with MTV.

The actor also admitted that it took a few acid attempts to nail his performance, but he insists he was never “wasted” on set.

He adds, “You don’t show up wasted. You don’t show up completely tripping on acid. But you’re rooting for something (the feeling of being on drugs) and you’re pushing yourself toward it. Everyone’s got their own way.”
