Why we love miles teller
Considering he only made his proper big screen debut a mere four years ago, Miles Teller’s had quite the rise. A small but noticeable role alongside Nicole Kidman in grief porn Rabbit Hole led to meh-some turns in a series of raunchy teen comedies – let’s just forget Project X and 21 and Over happened, shall we? But Whiplash marks the turning point for an actor about to go stratospheric with a mixture of potentially great blockbuster fare (Insurgent and The Fantastic Four), quality comedy (Get a Job alongside Anna Kendrick and Alison Brie), method awardschasing biopics (Bleed For This) and a re-teaming with Whiplash writer/ director Damien Chazelle for old school song-and- dance number La La Land. Teller may be overshadowed by JK Simmons’ stunning performance come Academy-nominating time for Whiplash, but we guarantee you it’s only a matter of time ‘til he’s back on their radar. An Oscar awaits.
