The Shia LaBeouf Bio

The Shia LaBeouf Review –

by Nate Lee

Best Film:


The role that made him famous to fans older than teens. Through the twists and turns of its serendipitous plot, and through his spot-on performance, "Holes" most ably showcases Shia's innocent adaptability.

Great Performances You May Not Have Seen:
The Battle of Shaker Heights
The Greatest Game Ever Played (golf prodigy)
Disturbia (the boy next door… to a killer)
Bobby (a waiter)
The Guide to Recognizing Your Saints
Eagle Eye (opposite Michelle Monaghan)
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Indy's son)
Holes (Stanley Yelnats, a mistakenly imprisoned boy)
Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle
I, Robot
Constantine (Keanu Reeves's chauffeur)
The Real Shia LaBeouf:
The Battle of Shaker Heights

LaBeouf often gives the sense of having grown up too soon, the offspring of a heroin-addicted father and a mother who barely scraped by. This little-known role is close in a lot of ways.
Acting Style:
So far, he's the self-reliant kid, displaying orphan-like moxie in a world of unreliable adults – yet still, at the core, an innocent.
Bits and Quirks:
Lets down that guard to remind us, with clumsiness or stuttering, that he's still a kid. Open-mouthed surprise moving into outrage. Nerdy slouch. Quick spurts of dialogue, often displaying a quick temper.
Great Scenes:

> Stealing the truck and driving it into a hole
> In the hole with the poisonous lizards
> Rescuing his friend Zero and carrying him up the mountain
> The satchel at the end


> Tripping out on LSD
> Playing tennis
> The assassination scene


> Copping an attitude with Reeves in the beginning and the guy dropping on his car

Eagle Eye

> The poker game
> The crane crashing into the FBI building
> In the crate with Michelle Monaghan
> The luggage machine at the airport


> The robots visiting his house
> Meeting the "autobots"
> The car lot, finding the yellow Camaro
