13 years ago the beloved Disney film Holes hit our screens. The movie, based on the book of the same name by Louis Sachar, starred some of the promising stars of the early 2000s as well as some familiar faces. Some of those diggers have gone on to do big things and others have gone on to do some very strange things. Everybody sure has changed a lot since the film came out in 2003, but what have they been up to?
Shia "Stanley" LaBeouf
Poor Shia, recent years have not been kind to him. As a teenager, Shia had everything going for him. He starred in the hit television show Even Stevens and played the role of Stanley in Holes. However, after years of hate from so-called "fans" for his role in the Transformers movies and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Shia has been reduced to the butt of many bad jokes. He's currently a self-titled "Performance Artist" pulling stunts such as his "I am Not Famous," #IAMSORRY (in which he created an art installment to apologize for the aforementioned films), and most recently forcing himself to watch every single one of his movies without stopping, an act which reduced the disgraced actor to tears.
Even though Shia LaBeouf is no longer a star in the film industry, he continues to be recognized for his performance art. The majority of his stunts have garnered him internet fame as pictures and videos have gone viral. One of his most recent videos is this uh..."motivational" speech:
Sigourney "The Warden" Weaver
Sigourney Weaver was a huge star long before she played The Warden. Starring in film franchises Alien and Ghostbusters, Weaver was a well known actress in the later part of the 20th century. Since Holes, Sigourney has continued to play roles here and there, perhaps most notably her role in James Cameron's epic Avatar. In the coming years, Sigourney will reprise her role of Dr. Grace in Cameron's upcoming Avatar 2, Avatar 3, Avatar 4, and Avatar 5 (yes, James Cameron confirmed that the 2009 box office phenomenon will be getting 4 sequels).
Khleo "Zero" Thomas
After starring as the lovable Zero in the film, Khleo pretty much left the acting scene and went on to do other things. Most recently he's been in the music world as an upcoming rapper/singer. He released his debut mixtape Just a Cartoon in 2010, and has released a couple of singles since then. One of those singles, So Many Girls, reached #10 on the BET's 106&Park. He's currently working on his debut album which will be out sometime this year.
Despite not having very many credits to his name, Khleo has done pretty well for himself, opening for acts like Snoop Dog and Ice Cube as well as working alongside rapper Bow Wow on several albums. Check out his hit single:
Dulé "Sam" Hill
Prior to Holes, Dulé Hill was an upcoming star. He was coming hot of the heels of a recent Emmy nomination (for his role as Larry on The West Wing) when he secured the role of Sam the Onion Man in Holes. He continued to play Larry until 2006 when he made the transition from political drama to the hit crime comedy Psych. Nowadays, Hill is perhaps most well known for his role as Gus. Making up half of the crime fighting duo, Dulé starred on the show from 2006 until its finale in 2014. Dulé is also an exceptional tap dancer, as those who are familiar with Psych have seen, and has appeared on Broadway several times. Most recently Dulé has had a recurring role on the Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's television show Ballers.
