So there's actually an actor called "Shia LaBeouf"

I wasn't sure if it was a pseudonym, like in the case of my fellow NYU dropout alumnus Lady Ga Ga, but it looks to be the legit name of a young man. The thing is that I'm very, very, certain that something extremely similar to "Shia LaBeouf" was the name of one of Frank Zappa's gag characters, a female one. A groupie. But he appears to be a teeny bopper actor, with hippy parents. Maybe there's a connection there.

*on edit: what I'm thinking of is a selection from the soundtrack to "Uncle Meat", where the main woman is talking to the person playing the monster about how their names would change if they got married, with her saying that it would be "Shia de Biff".
