    Say you were the main lead in the TF movies, would you ever want to stop making them like Shia LeBeouf has?

    If I had been starring in the same franchise for almost half a decade I would, so I wouldn't end up typecast.

    depends on if you are a fan or an actor. Shia Labeouf is an actor and he is ready to move on. He is been in the most physically and mentally demanding roles in his career so it is about time for him to move on and evolve as an actor.

    For me, as a fan, I would be in them as long as I can, it is an honor.

    For me, I would just love to star in any Transformers movie period, so I probably would never stop.

    I think the guy really does love acting and he doesn't want to get typecast for the rest of his life until he ends up on things like the Sci Fi movie of the week because he can't get the roles he wants.

    Lets say for example that Tom Hanks just stuck with comedy, a lot of great roles he would have missed out on if he didn't say I want to more than just comedy.

    Really hard to say what an actor will mature into, but I wish the guy the best of luck with broadening himself as an actor.

    Not sure if serious.
    Are you really trying to say that these 3 films were mentally demanding for the actors?
    I can't imagine that you are over 18.

    i get why he dosent want to do them anymore... i mean hes made a shit tone of money etc etc but hasnt been cast in a wholelot of anything. it gives him a chance to branch out now not having all his time tied up with TF. though if i were him id wait and rejoin the franchise years down the road... thats just me though lol

    Depends on the work involved really...for us fans it's a dream come true but for a star it's just a job and they hate it as much as we hate goin to ours sometimes lol

    Depends on the 3 films.

    For Elijah Wood The Lord of the Rings might have been mentally demanding because his character has a lot of changes and growth over three films. The ring is eating away at the character so by the end he's not the same Hobbit we see back in the happy days of Shire.

    For Shia LaBeouf it's three films of run, run, run, no, no, no, no.

    it depends on several factors

    1) does the filming tie up my schedule where I wouldn't be able to do other projects?

    2) do I risk being typecast as the "transformers kid"?

    3) does my salary increase and do I get a merchandise cut?

    4) as someone mentioned before what if they start sucking? Then it looks like you can't get any other job because you've been starring in sucky transformers movies

    5) filming these films is very physical in nature, am I physically able to continue filming these movies? That's what almost happened to Tobey MaGuire after a back injury he sustained during filming the first movie (Spiderman) he decided he wasn't coming back for the second, he eventually did, and that's why after Peter falls off a building during the second movie and stands up and says "Ow my back!" it's kind of an inside joke.

    Heck no! No matter how bad I think the plot is, I'll make it a great plot 'cause that's just how I do it.
