Shia LaBeouf Confirmed As Indy's Sidekick
After a lot of confusion, obfuscation, and denial from everyone involved, it looks like the rumor we reported here is true. USA Today confirmed that Shia LaBeouf will be in Indiana Jones 4 to co-star as Harrison Fordís sidekick. Shia LaBeouf is the new Short Round!
The weird thing is that Shia still insists even two weeks ago he knew nothing about being in the movie. Now though heís a lock. Donítí worry though, the whole Short Round thing was just my idea of a joke. LaBeouf says, ďIt's not going to be Short Round, all grown up.Ē
As for who Shia is playing in the movie, heís not saying. Early speculation was that heíd be cast to play Indiana Jonesí son, with an eye to having him take over the franchise from Harrison down the road. But right now, all we know for sure is that heíll be Indyís sidekick.
Whatever his place in the movie, heís a good choice. I wasnít thrilled with Shiaís new movie Disturbia, but the kidís got a lot of talent and charm. Itís easy to see him as a younger, wise-cracking version of Indiana Jones. Kentucky Jones anyone?
