If you think you're special just remember, Mike Tyson has 74 pigeons -- and he can tell them all apart.
Miles Teller (born February 20th 1987) is an American actor best known for his appearance in 'The Spectacular Now'.
Childhood: Miles Teller was born in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. His parents are real estate agent Merry Teller and nuclear plant worker Mike Teller. Miles lived in various places growing up including Citrus County, Florida and Cape May, New Jersey. He attended Lecanto High School and learned to play the saxophone and the drums, even becoming the drummer for his local youth group's church band. He later attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts where he landed a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
Acting career: Miles Teller started out his acting career with several short films such as 'Moonlighters' (2004), 'A Very Specific Recipe' (2007), 'The Musicians' (2008) and 'The Track Meet' (2010). His first full-length movie was 'Rabbit Hole' in 2010 and the following year he appeared in the remake of 'Footloose', after already appearing in a stage version at school. After roles in 2012's 'Project X' and 2013's '21 & Over', he landed success as the lead in James Ponsoldt's 'The Spectacular Now' opposite Shailene Woodley for which he won a Dramatic Special Jury Award at Sundance. That year he was also cast in the music drama 'Whiplash' in which he uses his real life drumming skills.
In 2014, he appeared alongside Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan in the comedy 'That Awkward Moment' and worked with Woodley again on teen sci-fi movie 'Divergent'.
Personal life: Miles Teller is currently in a relationship with model Keleigh Sperry.
Both actors were originally set for the musical, but ended up being replaced by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.
La La Land is currently dominating awards season with stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling each picking up a Golden Globe award and an Oscar nomination for their lead roles. But while it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing Mia and Sebastian, originally it was meant to be Emma Watson and Miles Teller singing and dancing their way around Hollywood.
Now a report by Page Six has claimed that both Watson and Teller lost out on the roles for being ‘too demanding’ and the film’s award season success has left both stars at war with their agents.

This is such a ripping true story that it can't help but grab hold of the audience, even if the film never quite breaks through the surface. A story of tenacious triumph in the face of seemingly impossible odds, it also offers Miles Teller a terrific against-type role as a beefy young boxer who simply won't take no for an answer. And the entire cast is just as surprising, adding textures to a movie that's a bit too straightforward for its own good.
This is the story of Vinny Pazienza (Teller), a young boxer who wins two world championships in two weight classes with the help of his father Angelo (Ciaran Hinds) and his trainer Kevin (Aaron Eckhart). Then at the top of his game, he breaks his neck in a car crash and is told he may never walk again, let alone fight. But Vinny is determined to remain the champ, so he returns to training, even though an injury could leave him permanently disabled. Kevin reluctantly agrees to train him, pushing him up into yet another weight class. And seeing the publicity possibilities, father-and-son promoters (Ted Levine and Jordan Gelber) set up a massive Vegas comeback match.
Writer-director Ben Younger shoots this with a steady authenticity, charging inexorably through the story in a way that echoes Vinny's singleminded determination. Along the way, there are strained relationships, a variety of physical and emotional obstacles, intense boxing matches and, of course, a few emotive training montage sequences. The story is so strong that the film can't help but be engaging and even rousing, even if there are very few shadings along the way. Vinny never seems to doubt himself at all, his family only barely objects to his potentially life-threatening decisions, and his opponents are clearly going down for the count.

In his new movie Bleed For This, Miles Teller goes against type to play boxer Vinny Pazienza
Pazienza won world championships in three weight classes and kept fighting even after a crippling car accident, after which he wasn't supposed to even walk. "This comeback is the greatest comeback in sports history, and it's real," Miles Teller says. "It's not some phony, fictionalised movie based on a true story. This is real. This happened. And I just think that's so inspiring for anyone. It transcends boxing."

After building a career playing sensitive young men in films like The Spectacular Now and Whiplash, Teller knew he wasn't the logical choice for this role. "I was like, 'This part is going to be really great for someone else,'" he laughs. "I really wasn't thinking that a director would see me as anything other than a guy who's been in some independent films where he's played a high schooler and then he's done some post-college comedies or romantic comedies."

Based on a rather astounding true story, this comedy-drama centres on two stoners who landed a massive defence contract with the American government to sell arms for the War on Terror. The story is told with a heavy dose of macho swagger by The Hangover's Todd Phillips, which makes it entertaining even as it dodges the heavier themes the plot is raising. It's also set in a world where smugness is an asset and women are irrelevant.
It begins in 2005 Miami, where David (Miles Teller) is working as a masseur and living happily with his girlfriend Iz (Ana de Armas). Then he runs into his old school friend Efraim (Jonah Hill), who convinces him that there's money to be made selling weapons to the US military. Over the next few years, the business expands dramatically, bringing in a fortune as David and Efraim travel into Iraq to see their deals through. Then they land a massive new contract that involves working with a rather dodgy supplier (Bradley Cooper) and processing the arms in Albania. But as they start bending the law to maximise their profits, things start to fall apart.
Phillips tells this with a quick step and a twinkle in his eye, zipping through the events with masculine energy, filling scenes with black humour as the business gets murkier. Hill and Teller make a terrific team, using their impeccable comic timing to make every scene zing. They are also excellent at bringing out the contrasts between David and Efraim: David tries to do things right, Efraim has no moral compass. And their differing approaches to cross-cultural situations are telling as well. Many of their conflicts seem scripted for movie purposes, but they're so well-played that we don't mind too much. By comparison, the supporting cast kind of fades into the background. Cooper grabs attention in a seriously oddball role, while de Armas is completely sidelined as the only person with a conscience.

Their relationship kind of reflected that of Efraim and David.
In the new comedy-drama War Dogs, Jonah Hill and Miles Teller play childhood friends who meet up again in their late 20s and go into business as arms dealers. Since it's based on a true story, both actors were keen to dive into the roles.
Jonah Hill and Miles Teller star in War Dogs
Hill says he was aware of the story from a Rolling Stone article, but found out that The Hangover director Todd Phillips had already bought the rights. "So I reached out to him," Hill says. "And I said, 'If you ever make a movie out of this, I'd love to talk about playing Efraim because he is one bizarre, messed-up character.' I was just really attracted to how insane the story was and that the characters were people my age doing these insane things."
Teller agrees that the characters' age was a key factor in his interest in the role. "I think that these guys' youth kind of gave them a certain feeling that maybe they didn't have as much to lose," he says. "It's rare to get a script for guys in their 20s that are actually doing things with big responsibility or a more mature tone. And I was excited to play the straight guy who actually has more of a moral compass. Those aren't always the parts you're getting."
Watch the trailer for 'War Dogs' here:
Vinny Paz always had the passion and drive to be the best boxer in which ever division he turned his hand to, he trained rigorously and his whole life revolved around winning the next title. Cheeky in nature Vinny immediately caught the attention of the sporting press earning himself the nickname 'The Pazmanian Devil' for his speed and ability to run circles around his competition in.

The actor is just taking in all the negativity.
Just as Fantastic Four hits cinemas, its leading man Miles Teller has found himself engulfed in a social media scandal due to his habit of answering interview questions with an uncanny frankness.
Miles Teller plays Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four reboot
After the 28-year-old was described as "kind of a d**k" by Esquire writer Anna Peele, Teller's Fantastic Four director and cast mates immediately leapt to his defence, while Teller himself tweeted that the tone of the article was "very misrepresenting".

The Marvel Comics adaptation has opened to extremely poor critical notices.
Director Josh Trank has taken action to distance himself from the critically derided reboot of Fantastic Four, appearing to claim that the studio, 20th Century Fox, was at fault for interfering with his “fantastic” vision of the movie.
The movie, which is the third such attempt to launch a big screen franchise out of the Marvel Comics tale, has been roundly panned by reviewers in the last couple of days since its August 4th premiere. Starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan and Toby Kebbell, it currently holds a 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the worst reviewed superhero movie of 2015 thusfar.
Toby Kebbell stars as the villain in the new 'Fantastic Four' movie
Until the special effects take over in the final act, this is an unusually gritty, grounded superhero thriller, with characters who are so believable that the wacky science almost seems to make sense. This is Marvel's very first franchise, and the filmmakers are unable to resist the pressure to indulge in an overblown finale, and the digital mayhem they give into is oddly unexciting. So as an origin story, this film is more involving than most, but the superhero action itself feels rather limp.
It opens as an exploration of the school friendship between the misunderstood genius Reed (Miles Teller) and junkyard bully Ben (Jamie Bell), whose teleportation science experiment gets them in trouble. But Dr Storm (Reg R. Cathey) sees that their work solves a problem he has encountered in his own experiments, so he brings Reed to New York to join his well-funded, high-tech team. Working with Victor (Toby Kebbell) and Storm's children Sue and Johnny (Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan), Reed builds a full-size teleporter that succeeds in crossing over to another dimension. And Ben joins the crew for an illicit first voyage that goes spectacularly wrong, leaving Victor on the other side, while Reed, Ben, Sue and Johnny emerge with superpowers caused by altered DNA. The big boss (Tim Blake Nelson) immediately starts training them for military action, but Reed remains determined to make things right.
A strong cast helps all of this play out with remarkable introspection, letting each character develop an organic back-story that brings them together as an uneasy team. The inter-relationships are complex and engaging, veering from rivalry to camaraderie. Teller anchors the film with a layered performance as a smart, troubled guy who struggles to maintain friendships as he focusses on his work. Mara and Johnson add some feisty attitude, but it's Bell and Kebbell who provide the spark of personality that makes this crew so engaging. Then both of them become animated characters (Bell as The Thing and Kebbell as Dr Doom) without even a hint of the actors visible underneath. And the movie never quite recovers its momentum.
