I've been struggling and struggling to come up with something to say about Shia Labeouf's paper bag look at the Berlinale over the weekend. Thought it seems ready made for a meme -- think of all the has-beens that could be mocked! -- you wouldn't be able to tell who was being mocked once you'd photoshopped the bag over the head. 

I know only two things about this. First, that James Franco exploded when he saw it, both sexually aroused and furious that he hadn't thought of it first. Second, that at least one cinephile in each top film market will do this look for Halloween and not enough people will get the joke.

Well, at least it's more entertaining and creative than sticking your tongue out and twerking.

Sad man:

Excuse me? Let's see what you can come up with?!

Well, his last few movies flopped and he was caught plagiarizing a graphic novel, but there's no need to get all mopey about it. He's still at least on the B-list.

Is this where the word asshat comes from?

February 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDave in Alamitos Beach

LOL He is keeping himself in the conversation when he should be a "Who?"

February 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

I'm really sorry he's going crazy. I liked him in A Guide to Recognize Your Saints.

February 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

Oy! This all feels so calculated. He is clearly dealing with issues involving desperately wanting to be Joaquin Phoenix.

February 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCory Rivard

He smells of this desperate childish need to be noticed. And its working.

February 10, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterjohn

he was good in The Company You Keep, which no one saw unfortunately.

W.J.: Yeah, but that plaigiarism charge means that, if Fury flops, "LaBeef" is DONE. WELL-DONE, if you will.

February 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

I hope he gets help

That extremely homely man has never looked better.

Dave in Alamitos Beach FTW, although I believe the technical term is douche-bag.
