Shia LaBeouf Channels His Dad in New, Unrecognizable Set Pics Album

With long, shaggy hair, a bald spot and wire-rim glasses, Shia LaBeouf is barely recognizable in photos released from the set of his upcoming movie, “Honey Boy.”

The “Transformers” star is playing a character based on his own “tough as nails” father. In 2015, he told reporter Christy Lemire that his childhood was “dramatic” — “My dad was on drugs, heroin and all kinds of wild [stuff] and he was in a rehab facility.” He also said that his dad used to grow pot in the brush along various L.A. freeways.

LaBeouf says that getting cast on the Disney Channel series “Even Stevens” when he was 13 “saved his life.”

“Manchester by the Sea” Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges stars as the child actor who is trying to mend his relationship with his “law-breaking, alcohol-abusing” father.

The film, which is being directed by Alma Har’el (“Bombay Beach“), doesn’t yet have a release date. It costars Maika Monroe (“It Follows”), Natasha Lyonne, Clifton Collins Jr., and Laura San Giacomo.
