So I read somewhere that this is what Spielberg is calling this kid. That he's the every day guy for a new generation and is gonna be as big as Tom Hanks..
I personally like the guy. Loved Disturbia, liked Transformers and he was ok in Indy 4.

Any thoughts from the rewinders???

Blah no comparison at all to Tom Hanks. Maybe box office sales wise but definitely not talent wise. I don't think he's that great but to each his/her own..

Well that's what its all about my friend, glad to hear from you on it. To be honest I don't think there will ever be another Tom Hanks. He is one in a million for sure and I am a huge fan. But I do like this kid, there's something about him makes me wnna see his movies.. That x factor thing..

I never can see the huge appeal of Shi La Boeuf. I think people keep hiring him cuz they like saying "Shia La Boeuf". If his name was 'Fred Snerd' he'd never work again.
But the thing I find funny is this is the new 'insult' with my daughter and he friends "You're Shia La Boeuf!"

I don't think there's anything great about Shia Le Boeuf. I don't find him attractive in any way. I always thought Tom Hanks was so cute, back when he did Bossom Buddies, Splash and Bachelor Party. He always seemed like someone I would have known in high school. He was so goofy.

But...so far in anything that I have seen Shia in, he isn't funny or goofy. I thought Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was awful.
It stunk.

Shia's kinda hot, but that's all he has going for him, IMO.

Shia imitates John Cusack, no doubt about it. He's OK, kid had good comic timing in Transformers and Indy 4, not seen any of his others. As far as new young actors go, he's got a good shot simply becasue there aren't that many on the mainstream radar, personally, I'd hedge my bets on James Franco, I really liked his performances in the Spiderman films and he was good in Pineapple Express, not to mention the underrated Tristan & Isidore.

What I want to know is this...how do you go from Even Stevens, a Disney show, to movies like Disturbia and the Transformers??

He's got a way to go with regards to Hanks territory. He's a bad boy to boot, living in the fast lane and getting into accidents. Didn't he lose or almost lose a finger in a collision? He's going to need to calm down if he wants a solid body of work.

Speaking of Hanks, how old do I feel? His son Colin Hanks turned 30 today, and in another coincidence, Hank's 82 movie Mazes and Monsters is playing on the movie channel, which I am watching for the first time.

I think we'll see a lot more from him. He's getting better as he goes. Lets not forget that Tom Hanks started out with Bosom Buddies. Nobody could have guessed how far he would go.

great way of putting it J.

i think he's got potential. it's actually not about his looks anyway. it's kind of dumb to compare him to tom hanks at all, if you think about it. tom has 2 oscars.. has starred in great movies over the last couple of decades. where shia is just starting out after leaving disney movies.
time will tell.

Yes Ronnie but I think the comparison is for Tom when he was Shia's age. As Jd said, if Shia continues as he is, he may bag an oscar or two!! [Wink]

I like him. I'll be interested to see where his career goes...hopefully he continues to make some good choices. I dislike when someone starts to become popular, then they begin signing up for any ol movie when people first start to offer them some serious money. hopefully he slows down and takes his time. Seems like a good kid...so...best of luck. From a quirky teenager to a potential future "A lister"...I'm surprised that Screech from Saved By The Bell hasn't done well [Roll Eyes]

And on the taking every role thing, lets hope he doesn't do a Cuba Gooding Junior on it.. [Frown]

I never liked EVEN STEVENS and I never found him even remotely attractive. HOWEVER HOLES was pretty good and both TRANSFORMERS and DISTURBIA were entertaining movies (even though DISTURBIA was more of a "kiddie horror movie" than Im used to watching). I've not seen his INDIANA JONES movie yet (I NETFLIXed it this week) but from what I can guess the secret to his success is that he picks projects that can appeal to both kids AND adults, and I think that's a pretty good strategy. I agree with you guys, I hope he doesnt get lazy and start picking lesser projects or get fat-headed and wrongly assume everything he touches will turn to gold. As long as he picks good scripts that have that teenager AND adult appeal he should have a bright future.
