GR Gets A Random Shout Out In Shia LaBeouf Movie
Shia LaBeouf's fictional take on his life as a child star, 'Honey Boy' featured a moment when the father in the film, played by LaBeouf gives a GR college team some mad hoops props.
LaBeouf, playing James Lort, a fictional take on his own dad, suddenly blurts out the following line, 'Calvin, in Grand Rapids...got a good basketball program'.
I haven't seen the film, so I don't know the context, and a clip of the line has been removed from Instagram for copyright reasons, but my one friend who has seen the movie, Dave, says it totally comes out of nowhere at random.
I can't see where anyone in the cast or crew has any link to Grand Rapids, so Calvin and GR will just have to take it as a great compliment.
