... and I don't have a problem with that.

Now, I know what you're thinking. "Starman, how can you possibly approve of Shia LeBeouf being connected to yet another geeky franchise? Do you not despise The Beef like all other folk of good virtue? Does your soul not weep that the likes of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are determined to turn this simpering idiot man-child into the next great action hero?"
Of course I do. And that is why I want to see him play Arseface. Because...
1. If he has two pounds of make-up on his face, I probably won't have the urge to punch his stupid face the whole time he's on screen.
2. If his mouth is obscured, I won't be able to hear his whiny "no, no, no" spiel as he runs about helplessly while all the other characters are being awesome.
3. There's a fair chance that if they were to make a Preacher movie that was allowed to include Arseface, they'd have to show the incident in which he became Arseface. And I am highly in favor of letting Shia LeBeouf be in a movie so long as he is shot in the face at point-blank range at some point during said movie.
