THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON

SHIA LABEOUF (Tyler) is an actor whose extraordinary natural talent and raw energy have secured his place as one of Hollywood's leading men.

LaBeouf recently received rave reviews for his performance in Honey Boy, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film also marks his first feature-length film as a screenwriter and reunited him with director Alma Har'el, with whom he previously collaborated on the documentary LoveTrue, which she directed and he produced. In Honey Boy, LaBeouf portrays a law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father who tries to mend his tumultuous relationship with his son (played by Lucas Hedges and Noah Jupe). The film received a Special Jury Award for Vision and Craft at Sundance and was quickly picked up by Amazon. LaBeouf recently wrapped production on the crime drama The Tax Collector, which was written and directed by David Ayer.

In 2017, LaBeouf starred in the drama Borg vs. McEnroe, which chronicles the rivalry, friendship and personas of Björn Borg and John McEnroe and how they became international superstars of mainstream culture. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and received rave reviews as did LaBeouf's performance. The previous year he was seen in the critically acclaimed independent film American Honey, a coming-of-age drama about a gang of law-breaking teenagers chasing the American dream. His performance earned him a British Independent Film Award nomination for Best Actor, a London Critics Circle Film Award nomination for Supporting Actor of the Year, and an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Supporting Male.

LaBeouf's other recent credits include the post-apocalyptic thriller Man Down, alongside Gary Oldman, Jai Courtney and Kate Mara; the war drama Fury, directed by David Ayer, with Brad Pitt and Logan Lerman; Lars von Trier's drama Nymphomaniac, about a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who recounts her erotic experiences; and the suspense drama Charlie Countryman, opposite Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen and Melissa Leo.

LaBeouf starred in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which marked his third and final turn as the enterprising and heroic Sam Witwicky. From the original Transformers, released in 2007 (which earned over $700 million around the world in its theatrical release and became the highest-grossing DVD of the year) to the second installment in 2009, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (which garnered global receipts upwards of $836 million), LaBeouf's character found himself in a life-and-death struggle between warring robot legions on Earth.

Additional film credits include Robert Redford's The Company You Keep; Lawless, alongside Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Guy Pearce; Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, opposite Michael Douglas; the fourth installment of Steven Spielberg's Indiana Jones series, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, alongside Harrison Ford; D.J. Caruso's Eagle Eye; the Anthony Minghella-scripted segment of romantic anthology New York, I Love You; the thriller Disturbia; the Oscar-nominated animated film Surf's Up; A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, which won a Special Jury Prize for its ensemble at the Sundance Film Festival; Emilio Estevez's acclaimed drama Bobby; The Greatest Game Ever Played; I, Robot; Constantine; Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle; and HBO's "Project Greenlight," featuring The Battle of Shaker Heights, produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. He made his feature film debut in 2003 in the comedy Holes, based on the bestselling book by Louis Sachar.

In 2007, LaBeouf was named Star of Tomorrow by the ShoWest convention of the National Association of Theater Owners, and in February 2008 he was awarded the BAFTA Orange Rising Star Award, which was voted on by the British general public. In addition, he was nominated for four Teen Choice Awards for Transformers, winning the Breakout Male Award as well as the Teen Choice Award for Movie Actor in a Horror/Thriller for Disturbia. In 2004, he was nominated for the Young Artists Award for Leading Young Actor in a Feature Film and the Breakthrough Male Performance at the MTV Movie Awards for his performance in Holes.

On television, LaBeouf garnered critical praise for his portrayal of Louis Stevens on the Disney Channel's original series "Even Stevens." In 2003, he earned a Daytime Emmy award for Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series for his work on the highly rated family show.

In addition to his work in front of the camera, LaBeouf has also directed several projects including music videos for Kid Cudi and Marilyn Manson. He currently resides in California.
