On Saturday Shia LaBeouf tried to enter a United States Air Force recruiter's office in Los Angeles, and the 28-year-old actor looked a bit defeated when he realized they were closed. He can't seriously be thinking of joining the armed forces, can he?

As it turns out, he's currently researching for an upcoming film role, according to TMZ. The site reports that Shia hasn't signed on for the gig just yet, but that he wants to learn more about the enlisting process.

Shia has been going to therapy every day for his alcohol abuse, and last week he appeared in a Manhattan courtroom for his disorderly conduct case. On June 26 he was arrested during a performance of Cabaret at Studio 54 after he yelled and allegedly struck fellow patrons at the theater. His lawyer is close to reaching a deal with prosecution, and Shia will be due back in court on September 10.

Shia will also be gearing up to promote his upcoming flick Fury, so it sounds like he's got quite a bit on his plate.
