Shia LaBeouf to Play Karl Rove in 'College Republicans?'

Shia LaBeouf has shown interest in playing Karl Rove in the upcoming comedy-drama College Republicans, according to the L.A Times.

The pic follows a young Karl Rove as he vies for the position of chief college conservative with the help of his campaign manager, Lee Atwater.

If Shia takes the role in College Republicans, this would be his first lead role in a comedy feature film after getting his start in comedy on television.

The 24-year-old actor is also rumored to star in the legal thriller The Associate, based on John Grisham‘s book.

    I hope Toby Jones reprises his role as Karl Rove in this. He was excellent in W. (2008).

    This is what I love about Liberal Hollywood. When we have a movie that just hints at god a religion like “The Book of Eli”, liberals get their panties in a bunch. However, liberals will make movies left and right that spin their ideas to the public and try and make fun of conservatives. However, that’s fine because as we can tell the public isn’t buying into the liberal agenda anymore.

    I’m so sick of that no-talent s hithead appearing in films with actual potential. Cant he just go back to messing up sequels and sucking Steven’s S. d ick?

  • LoveLeo

    This is Shia’s best Leonardo DiCaprio facial expression.

  • He has a big nose

    God his nose is HUGE and his bloated face isn’t doing his ‘looks’ any favors.

    You all must have had a lousy day at work, coming home and bashing negatives things at the end of the day. Cheer up, it’s the weekend. I love Shia, he’s a great actor<3 <3

    He is far to good looking to play RepubliKKKan as*hole supreme Karl Rove. They need someone fat, pasty, balding, and immoral for the role.

    The RepubliKKKans destroyed our economy. Vote Democratic next month!!!!

    @Shell: @az:
    I was saying that this is so typical of Hollywood, to shove God out of the pic.
    I think that we will be seeing more of Shia doing these kind of flicks seeing how his lord and savior is Oliver Stone. Oliver stone is into this kind of rubbish.
    I read that Shia is an atheist because of his sour upbringing and how his life was not the greatest so he refused God, something like that.
    I am just sick and tired of Hollywood making God to be a horrible boring thing to discuss, this is why I am not a fan of Hollywood and now I am not a fan of someone like Shia since he wants to get God so far off of the screen and all.
    Good Lord I hope that Carey is strong enough to stay away from that rubbish.
    BTW this is a repost since the first I used such “colorful lango” to describe my discuss with the Hollywood system and Shia, I got this messsage.
