Shia Getting LeBuff for "Indiana Jones 4"

by | April 24, 2007 | Comments

You know how that kid from "Holes" was cast in the next "Indiana Jones"? Well, you might not recognize him by the time the flick hits theaters next year.

The extremely likable Shia LaBeouf is saying all the right things where his role in "Indiana Jones 4" is concerned: "This is film history. I don’t just owe it to everybody involved in the franchise – I owe it to everybody who’s ever been a fan of Indiana Jones. I realize how important this is." OK, well said.

"The script has been in development for 15 years. It’s a huge project and you treat it that way," said the young actor — after he described a diet and exercise regiment that’ll put him into action-friendly shape. The formerly skinny kid star has put on 15 pounds to play an as-yet unnamed character, which he then hopes to shape into muscle. I’m beginning to see why Spielberg likes this kid so much. And between "Disturbia" and "Transformers," it looks like a whole the guy’s a star already.
