Shia LaBeouf is making headlines these days because of his appearance in the new music video for the band Sigur Ros. What makes this video so noteworthy is that the "Transformers" star is missing something that would seem very important to most of the rest of us if we were going to be on film, and that something is clothes. In the video for the band's new single "Fjogur Piano," Shia and another actress are playing a couple that is not quite functional, and there are scenes that involve full-frontal nudity for both LaBeouf and his counterpart.
We're sure Shia's more than happy to be in the headlines for going naked in a music video, considering over the last few months its been his bar brawls and street fights that have gotten him into the tabloids. What does the band think about so much skin in their new video? The band said in a recent interview, "Icelandic people are not prudish about people being naked."
So other than stripping down in the nine-minute short film for an Icelandic pop band, what's Shia been up to, and what's he got going on?
He's Going To Be "Lawless" - Starring in big Summer films is sort of Shia's thing. He's been in blockbuster Summer films with robots and Indiana Jones, after all. This August, he's starring in "Lawless," a film set in the Depression era with a story that revolves around bootlegging alcohol during the days of Prohibition. Also starring with LaBeouf are Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy and Guy Pearce.
He's Going Underground - Later this year, LaBeouf will star in a thriller called "The Company You Keep." The story centers around The Weather Underground, a radical Left Wing organization that engaged in acts of domestic terrorism in an effort to halt the Vietnam War. The film is directed by and stars the iconic Robert Redford and was written by Lem Dobbs ("Dark City") and Neil Gordon.
He's Filming His Necessary Death - It's not just thrillers and dramas that suit Shia's acting chops; he can also do comedy. He's currently filming "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman," in which he plays the titular role. The film also stars Aubrey Plaza of "Parks and Recreation" and Evan Rachel Wood. "Harry Potter" alum Rupert Grint, who played Harry's best friend Ron for eight films in that franchise also has a role in this film.
