'The Company You Keep': Shia LaBeouf's reporter knows how to cultivate a source -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you paid attention only to the internet hub-bub generated by Shia LaBeouf’s tweets, quotes, and late-night bar brawls, you might forget that he’s still a darn good young actor who’s only beginning to tackle the mature adult roles that will eventually define his career. In The Company You Keep, he plays Ben Shepard, an Albany newspaper reporter who lucks into a huge national news story when a former member of the Weather Underground (Susan Sarandon) wanted for murder is captured in his backyard. Chasing down leads by hook or by crook, Ben follows all the clues back to Jim Grant, an upstate lawyer played by Robert Redford — appearing in his first starring role since 2005’s An Unfinished Life. It’s a clever conceit that fans of All the Presidents’ Men — Redford’s classic movie about the two real-life Beltway reporters who cracked the Watergate scandal — will appreciate. Redford certainly did — he directed this thriller.

In an exclusive video clip from the movie, Ben charms his way into some crucial information by visiting an old flame (Anna Kendrick) who now works in law enforcement. Watch it below: READ FULL STORY

Robert Redford comes up from the Underground in 'The Company You Keep' trailer -- VIDEO

Robert Redford still knows how to wrangle up a cast of A-listers. His recent projects have showcased Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, Matt Damon, Will Smith, and James McAvoy, and the living legend has lined up another impressive cast of actors for The Company You Keep. Out front and center is Redford himself — in his first major starring role since 2005’s An Unfinished Life — portraying a former Weather Underground radical who’s exposed by a journalist played by Shia LaBeouf. Toss in esteemed vets Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Chris Cooper, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Jenkins, Stanley Tucci, as well as Terrence Howard, Anna Kendrick, and Brit Marling, and the title takes on a whole new positive meaning.

The new trailer digs deeper into the thriller aspects of the story, which evolves into a manhunt after Redford’s left-wing suspect sets out to prove his innocence, Fugitive style. Throw in echoes of Sneakers and All the President’s Men, and you have Redford’s most promising box-office picture since The Horse Whisperer.

'The Company You Keep' trailer: Shia LaBeouf hunts Robert Redford

Somewhere in his busy schedule of drinking moonshine, taking acid, having real sex on camera, borrowing John Mayer’s hermit-period facial hair, and generally doing everything he can to freak out Mia Wasikowska, Hollywood renegade and three-time Transformers star Shia LaBeouf found time to star in The Company You Keep, a new thriller from Robert Redford.

Redford himself stars as a fugitive member of ’70s militant-left crew The Weather Underground, while LaBeouf plays a reporter with glasses. Oh, and the movie also stars everyone: Susan Sarandon, Terrence Howard, Stanley Tucci, Brendan Gleeson, Anna Kendrick… heck, at one point, Nick Nolte even walks onscreen and says something that could almost be construed as language! Anyhow, watch the trailer: READ FULL STORY
