Get ready for another double shot of Shia LaBeouf and DJ Caruso in EAGLE EYE!!!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I think Shia LaBeouf has kind of gotten the shit-end of the stick in recent times. I don't think he gets the credit he deserves from a lot of people. There's not many of his generation that has the charisma and immediate likability on top of actually being able to act. I think DISTURBIA's success can be laid at his feet and if TRANSFORMERS works at all when the giant robots aren't blowing each other up, it'll be because the audience can connect with LaBeouf. That said, I think there is a danger of overexposure. He was on the radar and then with INDIANA JONES 4 he's been everywhere and will continue to be everywhere. I think he and Caruso work well together, so I'm looking forward to this new project at Dreamworks called EAGLE EYE. It's based on a story by Steven Spielberg and produced by Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci (TRANSFORMERS and STAR TREK). The story is about a young adult and his single mother who are framed as terrorists. Somehow they end up with a group plotting a political assassination. I want to hear more. The one-liner doesn't really get me excited, but I'm a fan of the team behind the project. Thoughts?

To be honest, he hasn't really done a whole lot.

Ha! If no one likes him, how can this be so? He gives backhanded compliments to other actors, and predicts he'll win an academy award before he's 25. This is not immediate likeability. This is a douchebag.

Leave him some time to get to the "Parasite in 3D" remake. For you numbnuts out there, Parasite was Demi Moore's first movie role back in 1982. It was the first futuristic horro fil for God's sake!!!

I also want to hear more. Shia gets me hard.

Only with a mother and a son instead of two friends.

Can't this Shia person please stop molesting animals? I don't want to watch a movie involving endangered eagles being skull-fucked. <p> Lock up your pets, people. Shia is to animals as congressmen are to children. <p> And shame on you, Steven Spielberg for producing this filth. From making a film about an endearing turd-shaped alien to a film about bestiality, you, sir, have degenerated into one sick fuck. I was expecting this from a hack like Eli Roth, but not from the man who gave us 'Hook'.

he loves him.

So I guess that live Shai to hang out at Tom Hanks house. Then they will work together on the Jaws remake. Shai is going to be Chief Brody. Tom Hanks will be Quint, but they will the computer animated version of him from the Polar Express. When the CGI shark eats him, the whole scene will be CGi!!! Even the boat Orca and the water and the blood! Can't wait!!
June 26, 2007, 12:43 p.m. CST
I guess he's the new chosen one. I've always wondered how they choose the chosen ones. Like when they chose Tom Cruise all those years ago. I never got it. This kid seems okay. I think I only saw him in that golf movie, but he was pretty good in it.

Did anybody see the pic of the brand new Transformers cartoon, where Optimus looks like a ugly monkey? THIS is worth complaining! Not the flames! http://tinyurl.com/2p8otz

He is still great on Degrassi: The Next Generation, and was great on "Boy Meets Crank" Anybody have any good good photos of that Topanga whore?

Shia LaBarf will star in the remake of the 80s horror classic "fright night". Mandy Moore will play his girlfriend, Dustin Diamond will play the vampire, and Jason Biggs is doing the motion capture acting for the character of Evil Ed, who will be done all in CGI. Directed by Tim Story. FEAR MOVES NEXT DOOR ON JULY 4, 2008!!!

...is already committed to the EASY RIDER update, in which he does triple-duty in Fonda's, Hopper's and Nicholson's roles, and everybody rides nitrous-charged minibikes.

... killed himself after murdering his wife and children. I don't think there's much worth eulogizing there, but that's me personally. If you really feel like you have to talk about him to the extent that you're spamming every talkback about him, go to a wrestling message board, where I'm sure you'll find plenty of people to engage in that conversation.

a murdering, white-trash meathead wrestler is the day that I never come back to this site. Amen, Mori.

I agree that Benoit would be over the line...<p>accomplishments: working out, taking steroids, learning some acrobatics, murder/suicide.<p>Larry "Bud" Melman did all that WITHOUT the murder/suicide...he deservedly got his obit on here...

doesn't live in their parent's basement either has no opinion of him or actually likes him. He's a good actor, dating back to even stevens. Just because a bunch of dorky fanboys on aintitcool.com don't like him, that means nothing.

Shia's sort of good yet kind of average, in my opinion. He carries roles pretty well but he never really grabs my attention. He's just sort of there... unobtrusive, doing his thing, but never breaking down my doors. Maybe that's just me. I've seen several young actors with far better chops than Shia, but I guess Steven Spielberg doesn't love them like his own son.<p> Shia seems like a good guy and a fairly talented actor, but the over the top acclaim he's suddenly receiving isn't really warranted.<p> Maybe he'll surprise me in his next film.
June 27, 2007, 9:53 a.m. CST
Boy Toy doesn't even BEGIN to go into what Shia has done for The Berg.

Oh, blow it out your ass, Quint. I'd fuck a cat to have half the lifestyle this pretentious little prick undeservingly enjoys.

Problem solved, sigh...

The kid grew up with nothing yet seems to have a fairly in-check ego and work ethic, despite some less than stellar parents for role models.
June 27, 2007, 8:59 p.m. CST
he tried to get someone who gave him advice fired and he did it in one of the whiniest ways possible. He'll probably be a huge star but frankly can go eff himself.

what like he was in I, Robot? or Constantine?- the little shit was the most instantaneously dis-likeable thing I have seen in front of camera in fucking yonks. <p>Including Haydn Dickheadssen.
