LaBeouf co-stars in the fantasy-horror film, Constantine, a movie based on Vertigo Comic’s Hellblazer comic book. The film portrays John Constantine, a cynic with the ability to communicate with half-angels and half-demons in their true form, who hopes to win favor back into Heaven. LaBeouf plays Chas Kramer, the quirky sidekick to Constantine who hopes to learn a few tricks of the trade along the way. The young actor describes what it was like playing Reeves’ sidekick:
Keanu’s great to perform with just because he’s so giving. What was cool was yes, my character looks up to him and I look up to him because he’s an American icon, so I got to pull a lot of that out of reality and put it into the film. It was a lot of fun to work on. Very easy.
