14 Shia LaBeouf Fans Give Him A New 'Holes' Nickname

Stanley Yelnats is no longer the Caveman.

NEW YORK, New York — Since Tuesday afternoon (Nov. 10), Shia LaBeouf has been watching every ? single ? one of his movies in reverse chronological order at the Angelika Film Center in Soho. Fans were invited to sit and watch alongside him (free of charge!) as he ate, slept and did whatever else one does when they watch movies for three days straight.

As of Thursday morning, the line to get into the Angelika stretched down the block with an estimated wait time of anywhere from six to 10 hours. The day was particularly special to fans because two childhood favorites, "Holes" and Disney Channel's "The Even Stevens Movie," were scheduled to play.

MTV News was on the ground talking to fans while they waited it out in line. Many arrived in the early morning hours to see adult LaBeouf watch baby LaBeouf in 2003's "Holes," based on the novel by Louis Sachar. If you need a refresher on the movie, young Stanley Yelnats, LaBeouf's starring role, is sent to Camp Green Lake to dig holes as punishment for allegedly stealing a pair of shoes (he's innocent). It's there his fellow campmates give him the nickname Caveman. They even make this very important music video together:

Since it's been over a decade (!!) since "Holes" premiered, we asked LaBeouf fans at the theater to give him an updated camp nickname based on, well, whatever they wanted it to be based on. The results ranged from enlightening to silly to ~on fleek~ to just plain random:

    A true homage to LaBeouf's "Even Stevens" character.

    Appropriate given the quantity of onions he eats in "Holes."
