Confirmation from the other side: Shia lead candidate for Y: The Last Man

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

We already told you that Shia had admitted to talking D. J. Caruso about taking the lead role in Y: The Last Man.  Now, confirmation comes from Caruso about the same thing.  In an interview in USA Today, Caruso has confirmed that he wants Shia to play the part.  Nothing is in stone yet, but the Y movie looks like its turning into a trilogy.  That’s a lot of Shia to love.  And, really, in a world where all men but one have been killed off, who better to be left than Mr. LaBeouf?

The Vanity Fair Cover

Vanity Fair Indiana Jones issueThe cover story about the upcoming Indy movie was extremely light on Shia (two mentions, and one of those was in a picture caption!), but the good people who put together Vanity Fair know the story doesn’t sell the magazine–the cover does!  So who gets equal space on this month’s VF cover?  None other than our boy Shia, looking good in the retro biker jacket.  There’s also an online video about the photoshoot (you can find it here), where they wisely give Shia some facetime.

What? He’s not #1?

You didn’t need me to tell you this, but someone over at SaltyStix.com has jumped on the bandwagon and named Shia one of the top ten most promising actors.  He’s not listed at number one (the author clearly needs a little more time watching Shia), but he did come in well ahead of the rest of the pack.  Click here to read more.

Poll: Shia Not the Next Indy

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

According to a poll over at Vizuble, “the public” does not think Shia is going to get the role of Indiana Jones in films subsequent to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull . Wait a minute… they take polls on this kind of thing? Have they nothing better to do with their time? Obviously, the Vizuble people are not devoting enough of their time to watching Disturbia. Check out the article here.
