THE COMPANY YOU KEEP

SHIA LABEOUF (Ben Shepard) has secured his place as one of the new generation of Hollywood leading men.

In addition to his participation in the all-star ensemble cast of Robert Redford's The Company You Keep, Shia can be seen in the crime drama Lawless for director John Hillcoat. The film, set against the backdrop of Depression-era bootlegging, also stars Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska, and debuted in Cannes to a standing ovation.

Shia most recently wrapped production in Romania on The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman opposite Evan Rachel Wood and Melissa Leo. The film focuses on Charlie and his romantic exploits with a girl who was previously claimed by a mob boss with a penchant for violence and a gang at his disposal.

In 2011, LaBeouf was seen in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which marked his third and final turn as Sam Witwicky. Also in 2011, he starred opposite Michael Douglas in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, directed by Oliver Stone. In 2008, he starred in the fourth installment of Steven Spielberg's "Indiana Jones" series, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull opposite Harrison Ford; teamed with director D.J. Caruso for a second time on the thriller Eagle Eye, co-starring Michelle Monaghan, Rosario Dawson and Michael Chiklis; and appeared with Julie Christie and John Hurt in the Anthony Minghella-scripted segment of New York I Love You, a romantic anthology.

Additional film credits include: Disturbia; the Oscar nominated animated film Surf's Up; A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints; Bobby; The Greatest Game Ever Played; I, Robot; Constantine; Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle; and HBO's Project Greenlight feature The Battle of Shaker Heights, produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. He made his feature film debut in the 2003 comedy Holes, based on the best-selling book by Louis Sachar.

In 2007 Shia was named the Star of Tomorrow by the ShoWest convention of the National Association of Theater Owners, and in February 2008, he was awarded the BAFTA Orange Rising Star Award, which was voted for by the British general public. In addition, he was nominated for four Teen Choice Awards for Transformers, winning the Breakout Male Award; the Teen Choice Award for Movie Actor in a Horror/Thriller for his performance in Disturbia, as well as a Scream Award. In 2004, he was nominated for the Young Artists Award for Leading Young Actor in a Feature Film and the Breakthrough Male Performance at the MTV Movie Awards for his performance in Holes.

On television, LaBeouf garnered much praise 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.

LaBeouf currently resides in California.
