EXCLUSIVE: I’ve confirmed that Shia LaBeouf left WME on Friday. And that he’s going agentless, sticking with his manager John Crosby and his attorney Matt Saver. It’s a huge loss for the agency and Megan Silverman (who helped put the actor in everything big like Disturbia and Transformers and Indiana Jones 4 and Wall Street 2), since Shia is one of the biggest young stars with the brightest future. But it was all very amicable. The explanation I hear is that Shia has Leo has his role model and, since DiCaprio is famously agentless, Shia thinks he can go that route, too.
