Shia LaBeouf has revealed he wants to do grittier roles.
The Transformers star, whose dream part would be troubled teenager Holden Caulfield in Catcher In The Rye, told FHM: "I really like all that beatnik culture, I think it would be fun, just for my family, and the way that I was raised.
He added: "I don't know if I'm interested in the blockbuster whimsical stuff any more - I want to be a little ballsier; balls, blood and death, kind of thing... Not outrageously so, just something a little grittier, with a little more meat to chew on."
Shia, who next stars with girlfriend Carey Mulligan in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, also admitted he has given up boozing after getting into trouble with the police.
"I've been in a lot of trouble. I've been arrested a bunch of times. I f***ed around for a while, so now I don't drink any more," he said.
The 23-year-old added: "Drinking is s****y for me, I don't know how to compose myself... I don't know how to drink like a gentleman. When I drink, I get crazy. I have never had a beer because I like the taste of beer. I always had a beer to get f***ed up."
