Shia LaBeouf might mess with his own life, but he’s not fooling around with its depiction on the big screen. Ocsar-nominated actor Lucas Hedges has been hand-selected to play a younger version of Shia in the Disney alum’s upcoming biopic “Honey Boy,” as The Hollywood Reporter points out.

Shia LaBeouf took a look at the man in the mirror after his 2017 arrest and he’s pointing fingers Kanye West. In an interview with Esquire, the troubled actor claims that the rapper raided his closet and took everything.
Shia LaBeouf sat down for his first interview since his 2017 arrest and he has done some self-reflecting. The “Transformers” lead has taken a long, hard look at his recent “failures” and is giving credit to his life change to one man.
Shia LaBeouf has learned of his fate after pleading guilty to obstruction on Thursday. The actor also pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct in a Georgia courtroom where he faced a judge to learn of his fate after going on a racist tirade during a June arrest. A third charge of public drunkenness was thrown out.
While they were there, a live link to a museum in the Finnish capital city, Helsinki, gave museum patrons a chance to ask questions and interact with the secluded artists. A new interview from the museum gives the artists a chance to remember their best and worst moments from their time there.
“Some people would come in there like, ‘Show me the art,'” an intense Shia complained in the interview. “They didn’t realize they were a part of it. They were looking at it objectively instead of being involved.”
Shia LaBeouf was arrested for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness in Savannah, Georgia over the weekend. Bodycam footage from the officers who made the arrest surfaced, documenting the profanity-laced tirade Shia went on after he was cuffed and detained in the back of a police cruiser. The actor threatened and belittled the cops who arrested him.
Two more videos from his arrest surfaced late on Wednesday. In one, Shia is getting booked when he tells an African American cop that he’s “going to hell” because he’s a Black man. The comments have been called racist by many, including Piers Morgan, Donald Trump, Jr. and others eager to attack him for protesting President Donald Trump. Shia has now apologized on Twitter for his drunken remarks.
“I am deeply ashamed of my of my behavior and make no excuses for it,” he wrote in a statement. “The severity of my behavior is not lost on me.” Shia went on to call the incident a “new low” for him personally.
“A low I hope is a bottom,” he continued. “I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.”
Another video of Shia taunting a white officer by claiming the cop’s wife loves “Black dick” was posted by TMZ, as well. The intensely uncomfortable interaction was documented on police station security cameras that were obtained by the gossip site.
