    The film — which was also written by LaBeouf — follows the rocky relationship between a child actor named Otis (Noah Jupe) and his father.

    And LaBeouf — who is taking on the father role here — is darn near unrecognizable in this whole get up.

    The film is set to focus on a fictionalized version of LaBeouf's rise to fame, while also documenting his transition into adulthood, rehab, and recovery.

    And you can definitely see some references to his time on shows like Even Stevens:

    As well as blockbuster action movies, like Transformers:

    And frankly it's a little creepy how much Lucas Hedges (who is appearing as the adult version of Otis) SOUNDS like LaBeouf in this, what??? A+ casting job here.
