The more publicity Shia LaBeouf does, the more I like him. He was featured in a Los Angeles Times piece over the weekend, and appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman last night in New York City. Transformer 3: Dark Of The Moon opens tomorrow night, and LaBeouf is taking his liberties with behind-the-scenes tales. One in particular he shared with David Letterman, which involved an Ipod and a very “aggressive” Michael Bay.
LaBeouf explained that one scene in Transformers called for Sam to be very emotional after the death of his best friend. In order to get to that intense place of sadness, LaBeouf played “Brandy Alexander” by Feist on his Ipod. Bay didn’t think it was the appropriate song to play in a room full of NASA and Military personnel (they were shooting under on a shuttle launchpad at Cape Canaveral, Florida), so he switched out LaBeouf’s choice for The Dark Knight score. The actor and his director had words over which song was more appropriate (LaBeouf described Bay as “an aggressive guy, hard to work for, demanding”), with LaBeouf emerging victorious.
