Shia -- Transformed?

Shia LaBeouf was inside a Chicago courthouse Wednesday -- but reporters outside went wild for some random guy who they thought was him. Taking a page out of the Wesley Snipes Pap-Handling Manual?


The clearly confused kid was a good lookin' guy, but obviously not the slicked-hair, 5'10" star of "Transformers." Not even close. Someone call research!
