WHAT: To celebrate the Los Angeles Premiere of Walt Disney Pictures' THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED.

From the studio that brought you "The Rookie" and "Miracle" and director Bill Paxton, comes a story of courage, passion and of the greatest American sports hero you have probably never heard of ...

An amateur player from a working class family, Francis Ouimet -- played by Shia LeBeouf ("Holes") -- shocked the golf world when at the 1913 U.S. Open, flanked by his 10-year-old caddie, he defeated his idol, the defending British champion Harry Vardon -- played by Stephen Dillane. An unlikely match-up -- "the ingenue versus the seasoned champ" -- theirs was the greatest match the sport had ever known.

Caught between a world of hardship and a beckoning life of privilege, Francis needed to prove his unfailing will and ability to make it to the tournament. Elias Koteas ("Traffic," "Ararat") plays Francis' tough, hardworking father. Newcomer Peyton List is Sarah Wallis, the beautiful young woman, who catches Francis' heart. Josh Flitter is Eddie Lowery, the pint sized caddie who helps Francis find his way through the troublesome fairways to victory.
