Shia LaBeouf is a Motorcycle Man
Shia LaBeouf takes his cafe-racer style ‘Triumph Thruxton 900′ motorcycle for a spin around Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon.
Earlier this month, Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci, the writers of Eagle Eye and Transformers talked to ComingSoon.net about the 22-year-old actor’s role in Eagle Eye. Here’s one question answered by Kurtzman:
This is your second movie writing for Shia, so were you able to tailor the dialogue more to what he could do as a character or did you want him to do something different than he has in other movies? Yeah, certainly we had a great experience with him on Transformers and his voice is very very specific. It actually helped us quite a bit in conceiving his character in Eagle Eye and that in turn helped us in the conceiving of his character in Transformers 2 so we’re now on Movie #3 with Shia, so I think more than any other actor out there, we have his voice in our heads…. The other thing that’s exciting about it, too, is that this is really Shia’s first adult role. Transformers and Disturbia were both playing seventeen to let’s say nineteen years old, and this is first truly adult role. With that comes a whole new set of requirements, and I think people are going to be really happily, I wouldn’t say surprised, but it’s funny, especially with D.J. He created a breakthrough role for Shia when he did Disturbia but I think this is the next evolution of that. It just shows how much range Shia has.
