Would it surprise you to know that working with Shia LaBeouf is sometimes a strange and surreal experience?
...I know, right? Who would have called it?
Suicide Squad star Jai Courtney, who appeared in the film Man Down alongside LaBeouf, told Conan O'Brien about an off-putting -- but ultimately fun and harmless -- bonding experience he had with his co-star.
"He's an immersive individual, as you might have guessed. We met on a gun range, doing military training here in LA. The film was shot in New Orleans....He's like, 'So we're playing best friends, we should get to know each other.' I'm like, 'yeah,' he's like, 'I'll pick you up Monday.' I'm like, 'Where are we going?' He's like, 'New Orleans.'"
The pair jumped in a car, slept in El Paso along the way, and drove for about thirty hours to get to the set of the film.
You can hear a bit more about LaBeouf's strange and fearless approach to costar bonding in the video above.
