I first saw Shia LaBeouf in Project Greenlight on HBO back in 2003. Almost instantly it was clear this kid was amazing. Project Greenlight was a behind-the-scenes documentary of the making of a movie by a couple new directors. The on-set drama was crazy, and the directors were idiots, but Shia held his own.
This past weekend I went to see Disturbia. The movie has a C-grade plot and is very predictable, but Shia (as the lead Kale) was worth the admission price. I hope he gets material worthy of his talents.
Shia is also in Transformers, which opens later this summer … Transformers looks absolutely amazing, can’t wait.
