    LeGoof arrested again. Let's hope this is the end of this no-talent's career. :)

    He was in Indiana Jones and Transformers. He's quite possibly the most annoying actor since Ben Affleck. Like I said, hopefully this will be the nail in the coffin of his career.

    I don't really have a problem with him. I think he reminds me a lot of myself. :D

    Most actors are dumbasses in real life though.

    I don't really care how they are in real life. But when they show up to annoy me in films I want to see, it becomes a problem. ;)

    It is exaggeration, but he's one of the worst I've seen in some time. It makes me ill when guys like this get great roles that other, better actors would kill for. And clearly this dope doesn't appreciate what he's been given. If he were really good, it would be one thing. But he's average to bad.

    I don't have a problem with Shia -- I think he's been fortunate to be cast in such big blockbusters so early in his career (Transformers, Indiana Jones, Disturbia).

    I thought he did a pretty good job in those movies, but I admit, he seems to be in EVERY movie now.

    I don't pity anybody who drinks and drives, whether they are celebrities, strangers, friends, or family and I'm not about to now -- if true, he's a dumb***

    I seem to recall there's a youtube clip of him going "no no no no no no no" in a lot of scenes that he did in order to display emotions of desperation.

    EDIT: found it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IXCK1EyP4s

    Also, leekohler, love & hate is only a thin line apart. :D :D

    I find it abhorrent that Shia LaBeouf and so many others in Hollywood (Matthew Perry, Lindsay Lohan) seem to face such lenient penalties for driving while intoxicated. Instead of there being any kind of outrage, it almost seems like it's a joke, and that it's OK; it's just those silly actors.

    spoken well. it is a joke. if you or i tried that, we'b be in the slammer faster than a fat kid on smarties.

    it's such a double standard. look at leonard little....the dude killed a lady while drunk driving and he's still playing. in fact, was it last year or the year before, but i think he got another DD conviction! just brutal.

    i think lebeouf's been ok in the movies i've seen with him, but i don't hate him. no actor or actress really annoys me. I just don't understand how something/someone on screen could annoy oneself.

    looking forward to transformer 2 next year ! :)

    Cheers,
    keebler

    Well at least he didn't hurt anybody...... on that note, I think this thread is funny...........

    He doesn't bother me to much... no real love or hate for him. Just sort of blah.

    You say again, I take it he has been picked up before? Hmm very interesting.

    Agreed. He's not a bad actor, and he's not a great actor. He's certainly not bad enough to sicken me more than the others.

    Shia is okay. Nothing to get too excited over, but not horrible. Defintely lucky to be where he is, and lucky to be alive today, too.

    That's an argument that is used too often. Actually, if ever used it is used too often. Sure, the penalties should be greater when someone is hurt, but the fact that he (allegedly) did something that was careless and clearly risky to others' well being, he should be penalized as such.

    ... and the above almost applies as well to his acting as it does his drunk driving. :D

    Does anyone else find themselves wondering why this was posted?

    Doesn't this happen to other pathetic actors like every day?
