Shia LaBeouf has taken the film industry by a tumultuous storm. In the era of reboots, it was about time this question surfaced, would the Hollywood actor ever consider returning to TV and reprise the role that turned him into a household name?
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight to promote his new film The Peanut Butter Falcon with co-stars, Dakota Johnson and Zack Gottsagen, the actor shut down the thought of reviving the Disney series.
“Yeah, I mean, I loved doing it. It was a lot of fun. But no, I haven’t thought about that,” the actor said.
Even Stevens starred LaBeouf as an obnoxious seventh-grade troublemaker opposite Christy Carlson Romano.
While the actor has no plans to make it happen, his co-stars Johnson and Gottsagen says they love the show and even quipped about making the reboot happen.
“It’ll be me, my grandma… and it takes place on a cruise,” Johnson jokes.
The actor then discussed acting opposite Gottsagen who touched his vulnerable side.
“Yeah, he softened me. Yeah, coming in, I was quite twisted… I just remember when I first met him, feeling, like, extremely vigilant about protecting him …and then he was really vocal about not having me be that and then he was very protective over me. Yeah, I got quite vulnerable through the shoot.”
He also discussed a particular scene in his new indie film,
“There’s stuff, like me and him on a boat where he’s really my guardian and I don’t know if I would have allowed anybody else to get into my life that way,” he said. “I have never had anybody like that in my life, especially dudes. Like, I’m anti-alpha male. I have a real aversion to it. He is an alpha male, but his way is cotton-soft.”
