    No mention of that Disney show he starred in eh?

    Anyway, I don't really mind this. No idea what others will think.

    He was Constantine's sidekick in Constantine... But if you didn't see that, I guess the next prominent role would be the Charlie's Angels one...

    I remember him from Project Greenlight though...

    Was he any good in all those things he's been in?
    I've only seen Constantine, techically I've seen Charlies Angles:FT but i wasn't really following it too closely if you know what I mean.

    For me, he is great for this role and I don't mind him being casted at all.


    Oh, and he also had a small role in I Robot as a punk kid.

    I don't think he's a bad choice at all... The kid's been pretty decent in all the films I've seen him in... :thumbs2:

    Don't forget Holes. That was a pretty good movie. Decent story for a Disney movie. He was funny in Even Stevens as well.

    They seem to be filling roles with actors that fit the parts rather than going out for big named stars. I like that and hope it continues.

    I agree with Hiro Prime that at least it isn't some giant star just for the sake of having a giant star, though this guy is pretty much "on the rise"

    I always remember him from Constatine and Irobot... interesting, so our Sam will highly likely be a smartass...

    I've liked Shia LaBeouf in everything I've seen him in. And him being in the movie might be enough to get my siblings who like him to go see it. I think this can only be a good thing.

    I was hoping Steve Carell would play Spike. :D 

    I haven't seen Shia in much of anything aside from his TV stuff. Since I don't know anything about the "Sam" character, I can't really say. If Sam does equal Spike, he could fit the look.
