Don’t know why I giggle like a schoolgirl every time I read something about the upcoming Transformers movie, but I do. Dark Horizons has word on a few actors being cast/sought after and Shia LaBeouf has made the list. Not the biggest name actor, but I’ve liked Shia since I first saw him in Disney’s Holes.
He did a decent job of carrying what was essentially a kids family movie, but after seeing him go from that to sharing the screen with Keanu in Constantine and Will Smith in I, Robot, I think he could easily pull it off. Not an overpowering actor, but he’s probably about as “Spike-ish” as there is in Hollywood.
Although he won’t be the reason I’ll be going to see the movie. Hopefully they don’t go with the Pokemon-y versions that are running these days and instead go back to the ‘Formers of old. Would be great if they can get some of the original cast to cover the voices, but that may be asking too much. If they pull it off, maybe we’ll see a GI Joe chaser in a few years.
