Aren’t the movies wonderful? You get attached to certain actors doing certain things, you get to really appreciate their work and feel as if you know them as people, and then they embark on a new project and present themselves in some entirely new light and it’s as if your mental landscape has somehow grown, like, an extra foot or something.

Take this trailer for Charlie Countryman, in which Shia LaBeouf takes an extremely eventful trip to Bucharest.

On the way, there’s a dead man on the plane (and on Shia), and this unpleasant event leads to a series of circumstances that include meeting a girl (Evan Rachel Wood), being chased by her astonishingly psychotic husband (Mads Mikkelsen), and partying with Ron Weasley from Harry Potter (yesyesyes, Rupert Grint) and Jay from The Inbetweeners (James Buckley). Because Bucharest is THAT sort of a place.

And what is Ron doing at this party? Magic potions, that’s what. Look:

That’s not even the main part of the film, but it’s definitely worth filing next to Hermione Granger: celebrity burglar, and Harry Potter in a bath with him out of Mad Men.
