THE 22-YEAR-OLD WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN AC­TOR IS ALL GROWN UP, AND GO­ING PLACES – FAST.

GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE GQ -

Man of the mo­ment Ezra Miller; Tame Im­pala talk weed, gin and their new al­bum; co­me­di­ans who owe Jon Stewart big time; a side of classy porn.

Like a favourite song com­ing over the ra­dio, or dis­cov­er­ing $20 in your pocket, watch­ing Miller on screen is an un­ex­pected thrill. He cap­tures at­ten­tion, rather than de­mands it – he’s cool but un­con­ven­tion­ally so, se­lec­tive in his roles but suc­cess­ful, too. Need proof? 2012’s The Perks of Be­ing a Wall­flower won over crit­ics, then nearly tripled its bud­get. And there’s plenty more where that came from. This month, he’s in Amy Schumer’s com­edy Train­wreck, and when not busy tour­ing with his band (Sons of an Il­lus­tri­ous Fa­ther) or ap­pear­ing in op­eras (com­poser Philip Glass’ White Raven), he’s also comic-book su­per­hero The Flash in the up­com­ing block­buster Bat­man v Su­per­man: Dawn of Jus­tice, with a stand-alone spin-off due 2018. In short, we’ll be see­ing much more of Miller in the fu­ture. For fans of his work, that’s ex­cel­lent news. For those slow on the up­take, at least there’s time to catch up on things. En­joy. Train­wreck is in cine­mas July 30
