In this edition of Insights & Influences, Dave interviews actor Shia LaBeouf. As a teenager, LaBeouf starred in Disney TV’s Even Stevens (and the subsequent film of the same name) and the Disney feature film Holes. Since then he’s grown to roles in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, all three Transformer movies, and this summer’s gangster flick Lawless.
In spite of his humble beginnings, LaBeouf took the initiative himself as a budding actor to find an agent to represent him. As one of this decade’s most sought after actors, it’s no wonder why he was able to experience success from such a young age. In this podcast, Dave talks to the outspoken artist about his career and some of LaBeouf’s other opinions (of which he will tell you he has many.)
