Shia LaBeouf’s Reportedly Had Talks With Marvel About A Role

4 seconds ago


Earlier this year, Dakota Johnson said her The Peanut Butter Falcon co-star Shia LaBeouf might be the greatest actor of his generation. Even if he isn’t, then it can’t be denied that the 34 year-old is one of the most dedicated and committed talents in the business, one that’s gained a reputation for immersing himself deeper into his roles than the majority of his contemporaries.

After all, there aren’t a lot of names out there that would go to the same lengths as LaBeouf does for virtually every one of his movies. The former child star repeatedly cut his own face, had a tooth pulled out and converted to Christianity during filming for David Ayer’s World War II drama Fury, wrote and starred in the semi-autobiographical Honey Boy where he played a fictionalized version of his father, and even got his entire chest tattooed when he re-teamed with Ayer for crime thriller The Tax Collector.

Even when he’s not on set, Shia LaBeouf recently went viral for going all-in when it came to playing Jeff Spicolli in an online reading of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, much to the amusement and bemusement of the rest of the ensemble. We recently revealed that Marvel Studios were interested in having the Transformers alum end his self-imposed exile from big budget movies to play Iceman in their X-Men reboot, and insider Daniel Richtman is claiming that the two sides have held talks.

Although no further details are available, we heard from our own reliable sources that X-Men was the project in question, although so many actors meet with Marvel Studios that it could realistically be any number of roles, or even something as innocuous as a friendly chat.
