Shia LaBeouf (most commonly known as the guy from Transformers and Eagle Eye) usually plays a comedic actor who delivers the script like no other. Born in June of 1986, the twenty-three year old actually got his break on Even Stevens, a show from the Disney Channel and also starred in 2003 in the film called Holes as a teenager named Stanley who seeks family treasure while at a camp for minor teenage offenders. From Disturbia to the two Transformers films, he has shown grown potential since his early years.
He’s actually been some what of a “tough guy” in his personal life believe it or not. At Age 19, a neighbor insulted his mom and rear-ended her car so he bought a knife and upon confrontation he was jumped by six neighbors (according to GQ magazine). From rumors of dating Rhianna to the media making him appear as a child star gone bad, he has openly stated “The news went everywhere, like I was on a crime spree. And it killed me. It broke my heart, because I really try not to be that guy”- Shia LaBeouf (GQ Magazine)
Oliver Stone’s first sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps expected for release in September 24th 2010 stars Jake Moore (Shia LaBeouf) as he plays young man engaged to Winnie Gekko (Carey Mulligan). He agrees to help Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) repair a broken relationship with his daughter if he would assist in avenging the death of his own mentor.
The young, charismatic actor is said to be an mixture of “Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman and Gene Wilder” (Director of Holes Andrew Davis). and his talents will undoubtedly be present in this film with the impressive Michael Douglas. Next year we can look forward to seeing him star in Transformers 3, a far cry from the serious Shia in the Wall Street movie poster.
In local Miami theaters September 24th.
