We all know Shia LaBeouf is obsessed with himself. He had that whole livestream event where we all watched him as he watched every movie he’s ever been in, which has to be the most narcissistic thing ever.
But at the same time, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it. He’s a talented dude who is always on the edge of a breakdown, which makes him exciting to follow.
The 31-year-old actor is currently filming a biopic about his life titled Honey Boy. Shia will not be playing himself in the movie. Instead, he’ll be playing his father, and as you can see, he looks almost unrecognizable.

Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges will be playing Shia in the film, which was co-written by Shia. The story will follow the former Disney star attempting to repair his relationship with his alcohol-abusing father.
This will be Shia’s first film since his July 2017 arrest in Georgia for disorderly conduct, obstruction and public drunkenness. He has since apologized for his behavior during the arrest, calling it a mixture of “white privilege and desperation and disaster.”
No word on when this movie is expected to be released, but we will obviously keep you posted. This could either be a masterpiece or a disaster.
