Anton Yelchin is the New Shia LaBeouf?

Anton Yelchin is the New Shia LaBeouf?

Wearing his sleeveless sweatshirt half-on, Shia LaBeouf arrives for his weekly exercise training course in Los Angeles on Tuesday (April 6).

Rising star Anton Yelchin (pictured below) just might get his big break in Fright Night, DreamWorks’ remake of the cult 1985 vampire flick.

THR reports “Fright” is on a similar path as the 2007 hit Disturbia, which provided a breakout role for Shia. Anton already has scored rave reviews for his 2009 roles in Star Trek and Terminator Salvation.

DO YOU THINK Anton Yelchin will score big with Fright Nights?

    He doesn’t need to be considered the new Shia, he’s his own person and really talented on his own. Loved him since Fierce People.

    I really like Anton. I don’t think he’s the next Shia, because he’s his own person.
    He’s just so adorable and I was really shocked his Russian accent wasn’t real after I saw Star Trek. He’s a talented actor.

    It’s “Fright Night” not “Fright Nights” and I take it he’s playing Charlie Brewster.

    i’m pretty sure that sweatshirt isn’t sleeveless. he just tucked the sleeves into the hoodie pocket.
    i guess shia has learned how to evade the papparazzi pretty well. seems the only pictures we get of him are going/coming to the gym. maybe its the only place they can find him?

    Jokergurl Says:

    I don’t think I would compare these two, I don’t think Anton has the intensity that Shia has (watch A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints if you don’t buy this) Anton in Charlie Bartlett could not hold the screen with Robert Downey Jr as well as Shia LaBeouf would be able to. I haven’t seen Anton (Star Trek was blockbuster but it sold itself) in anything that is a real stretch for him yet. Shia on the other hand can open a movie (Disturbia before he even did Transformers, then Eagle Eye after Transformers did well too) They have two very different acting styles too.

    pfft, anton’s already scored big.
    wish Shia can exercise his acting skills a bit more though, by getting roles where the characters are not so similar to his previous characters.
