Thespian-Cum-Trading Guru 0-For-2 On Bar Brawls

Prior to his turn as an investment banker/research analyst/junior trader/private wealth manager/PE guy in Money Never Sleeps, Shia Labeouf spent a lot of time on the Street, learning the tricks of the trade. At the Encino Charles Schwab office, he learned how to turn $20,000 into $489,000 in less than three months. A Citi, he learned how to program Bloomberg into his speed dial. At John Thomas Financial, he learned how to trade on his flip-phone. And at a diner in Lower Manhattan, after hesitating on American or Cheddar, he learned the hard way how one does and doesn’t get a job at Goldman Sachs. Unfortunately, one bit of wisdom Shia’s guru’s never thought to instill in him was how to go head to head with Marilyn Manson or take a punch from a shirtless guy in Canada.

Actor Shia LaBeouf was knocked to the ground and repeatedly punched in the head during a wild brawl outside a nightclub in Vancouver, British Columbia. Video footage shows a disheveled LaBeouf being attacked by an unidentified shirtless man outside a bar called Cinema Public House. The “Transformers” star gets to his feet and attempts to hit back but is restrained by a friend who can be heard saying, “You gotta lay low right now!” LaBeouf, 25, and the other man began arguing inside the bar. After security kicked them out, the attacker ripped off his shirt and began throwing punches at LaBeouf.

    The fight winner must have lost his shirt as an IOC long on LeBeef's tip, hence the argument.

    Beating up the worst Wall Street character in movie history is NKI…

    He needs to find another outlet for his anger, like raising pigeons.

    If you're going to pick a bar brawl in a hockey town, best make sure you're not a skinny thespian pussy first

    Nothing's worse than a violent beating from an unremarkable person. Fighting is too much like fucking. Too much id involved.

    No, now I'm in to something…darker.

    "Your man couldn't cut it
    Got his fake ass gutted
    He muttered something monotoned
    Under his breath
    Now he's out first round
    With his hand on his chest
    Must have been a cardiac
    Now he's searching for his Pontiac
    To get back to a bar attack
    To brush up on his battle rap…"

    The beat-up Giants hat and facial hair say laid back, the shirt that's short enough to reveal his navel if he put his arms up says I've done unspeakable things for movie roles…

    "Is" as in "AIG Psychiatrist's subtlety is usually lost on the casual reader."
