You already know what it is—LaBeouf, after a Louis Sachar adaptation (Holes, 2003), some Michael Bay work (the Transformers flicks), gigs with Oliver Stone (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, 2010) and Steven Spielberg (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, 2008, is a legitimate actor now.
He's done with Hollywood, though, and appears only in Sigur Rós videos and Lars von Trier skinflicks.
