LaBeouf Partly Blames Himself for Indiana Jones 4
Actor Shia LaBeouf told the Los Angeles Times that he is sharing parts of the blame on why the latest Indiana Jones film did not live up much to the expectations of the viewers.
The movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008 earned a staggering 787 million US dollars worldwide. LaBeouf played the role of Henry “Mutt Williams” Jones III, son of Indiana Jones.
“I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished,” LaBeouf said to Los Angeles Times while in Cannes. He is currently filming another sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
However, he was quick to also put part of the blame to the monkeys whom he needed to swing with through a jungle sequence in the film.
“You get to monkey-swinging and things like that and you can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on [director] Steven [Spielberg]. But the actor’s job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn’t do it. So that’s my fault. Simple.”
The young actor, 23, will also star in the third installment of the film franchise Transformers.
