EAGLE EYE

SHIA LaBEOUF (Jerry) most recently starred in the blockbuster hit "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” opposite Harrison Ford, Karen Allen and Cate Blanchett and directed by Steven Spielberg.

Last year, LaBeouf took international audiences by storm when he starred in D.J. Caruso's popular thriller "Disturbia” and again as Sam Witwicky in Michael Bay's blockbuster "TRANSFORMERS” executive-produced by Spielberg. He also lent his voice to the character of a young penguin, Cody Maverick, in the Oscar®-nominated animated film "Surf's Up” alongside Jeff Bridges, James Woods and Zooey Deschanel.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, LaBeouf began acting as a way to entertain his mother and father at the tender age of three. He later attended the Magnet School of Performing Arts at USC before beginning his career as an actor by hiring an agent at the age of 11.

LaBeouf made his debut in the TV film "Breakfast with Einstein” (1998) before being cast in the award-winning Disney series "Even Stevens.” Over the next four years, LaBeouf's performance in the popular series earned him a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Performer in a Daytime TV Series (2003) and a nomination for the Young Artist Award as Leading as Young Actor in a TV Comedy Series three years running (2000-2002).

In 2003, LaBeouf made his feature film debut opposite Sigourney Weaver and Jon Voight in the comedy "Holes,” based on the best-selling book by Louis Sachar. For this performance, LaBeouf was nominated for the Young Artist Award in 2004 for Leading Young Actor in a Feature Film and the Breakthrough Male Performance at the MTV Movie Awards. That same year, he was cast as Bosley's protégé in "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle” and starred in HBO's "Project Greenlight” feature "The Battle of Shaker Heights” produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

Since his early work as a young actor, he has begun to take on more challenging roles, like that of the young Robert Downey Jr. in "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints” (2006), which won Best Ensemble Cast at the Sundance Film Festival, and as part of the ensemble in Emilio Estevez's acclaimed drama "Bobby” (2006).

In 2005, LaBeouf played amateur golfer Francis Ouimet in "The Greatest Game Ever Played” (2005) directed by Bill Paxton and based on Mark Frost's best-selling book. He starred alongside Will Smith in "I, Robot” in 2004, followed by a supporting role the same year in "Constantine,” the sci-fi thriller based on the comic book Hellblazer, opposite Keanu Reeves.

On the heels of his performances in "Disturbia” and "TRANSFORMERS,” LaBeouf was given the 2007 ShoWest Award for Male Star of Tomorrow and was nominated for four Teen Choice Awards for "TRANSFORMERS,” winning the Breakout Male Award. He also won the Teen Choice Award for Movie Actor in a Horror/Thriller for his performance in "Disturbia,” and also won a Scream Award.

He recently finished shooting the anthology film "New York, I Love You.”
