John Cleese can be considered a founding father of modern comedy, and he brought his very fitting style to the part of Mr. Munday in “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.”
The role had him act as a doting dad to Alex Munday, played by actress Lucy Liu. He remains unaware of Alex’s involvement in international espionage until Alex’s boyfriend, Jason Gibbons, played by Matt LeBlanc, spills the beans to a flabbergasted Mr. Munday. The actor did not have significant screen time in the film.
Shia LaBeouf Then
The 2003 rehash of the franchise brought a very adolescent Shia LaBeouf to the big screen as Max Petroni, an orphan who shared residence with the villain Thin Man. At the time, LaBeouf was instantly recognizable to children worldwide as Louis Stevens from the Disney Channel show, "Even Stevens".
His role in "Charlie’s Angels" would give the budding young actor room to flex his big-budget appeal, and he went on to star in his true breakthrough film, "Holes".
Shia LaBeouf Now
Shia LaBeouf never left the public eye since his explosion onto our small and big screens. The actor has often courted controversy and is known for his public outbursts as well as his groundbreaking characters.
LaBeouf played Sean Carson in the Netflix-produced "Pieces of a Woman." Unfortunately, allegations against the actor by previous girlfriends would see Netflix scratch his name off the list. LaBeouf made a statement acknowledging his problematic nature and publicly apologized, only to retract the statement a short while afterward.
John Cleese Now
John Cleese, now well into his eighties, remains an active performer, and his influence on the world of comedy and acting persists. Cleese has spent the last few years touring and being very vocal about political affairs. The comedy actor emigrated to the Caribbean island of Nevis in 2018, stating that his voting power was “worthless” in England.
Cleese’s highly publicized divorces kept gossip columns busy for years, and the actor spared no punches as he described his less-than-ideal love life.
Robert Patrick Then
90s action baddie Robert Patrick played the part of corrupt United States Marshall Ray Carter in the 2003 installment. The Angels rescue Carter only to find out that he’s working for the rogue Angel and archnemesis of Charlie, Madison Lee.
At the time of shooting "Charlie’s Angels" film, Patrick was starring in smaller films, and his part as the dishonorable marshal seemed to revive his acting profile; he went on to have major roles in "Ladder 49", "Walk the Line", and "Flags of Our Fathers."
