TRANSFORMERS

SHIA LABEOUF (Sam Witwicky) burst upon the scene and has quickly become one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors. His natural talent and raw energy are quickly earning him a reputation as one of the most promising young thespians. This year, LaBeouf starred in the DreamWorks thriller "Disturbia” for director D.J. Caruso, in which he played a teen living under house arrest who becomes convinced his neighbor is a serial killer. The film costarred David Morse, Carrie-Anne Moss and Sarah Roemer. He also lent his voice to the animated movie "Surf's Up.”

This past year the young actor was seen in "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints,” a coming-of-age drama set in the 1980s, co-starring Robert Downey Jr. and Rosario Dawson, as well as the critically lauded docudrama "Bobby,” opposite Demi Moore and Elijah Wood, for director Emilio Estevez. The film centered around 22 people who were at the Ambassador Hotel the night U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated. The film was nominated for multiple awards, including a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture along with nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Award and Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast, among many other nominations.

In 2005, LaBeouf captured the lead role as Francis Ouimet in "The Greatest Game Ever Played” for Walt Disney Pictures. Directed by Bill Paxton, the film was based on the best-selling book by Mark Frost, and told the true story of the legendary 1913 U.S. Open in which Ouimet, a 20-year-old golf amateur from Massachusetts, shocked the golf world by defeating the British champion, Harry Vardon, played by Stephen Dillane. Earlier that same year, LaBeouf also appeared in Warner Bros.' "Constantine” opposite Keanu Reeves.

Other credits include "I, Robot,” with Will Smith, HBO's "Project Greenlight,” "The Battle of Shaker Heights” and the hit action film "Charlie's Angels II: Full Throttle.” In 2003, LaBeouf made his big screen debut starring opposite Sigourney Weaver and Jon Voight in the family film "Holes,” based on Louis Sachar's popular novel.

On television, LaBeouf garnered much praise from critics everywhere for his portrayal of Louis Stevens on the Disney Channel's original series "Even Stevens.” In 2003, he earned a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series for his work on the highly rated family show.

A Los Angeles native, LaBeouf attended the Magnet School of Performing Arts at USC and began his career trying his hand at stand-up comedy in local neighborhood coffee houses. He still resides in California with his family.
