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.
Should producers be looking to cast a new Tris if ‘Ascendant’ moves to the small screen?
Actress Shailene Woodley doesn't seem too keen on the idea of moving the Divergent series to television for its final instalment, Ascendant. While no final plans have been announced, it has been reported that the series is set to end on the small screen, after the disappointing box office performance of the latest movie.
Shailene Woodley may not take part in a Divergent TV series
Speaking about the proposed television series to E! News, Woodley said: "From what I know, they want to proceed with a television show, which is not something that I signed up to do. Out of respect to the whole scenario, there could be things that have changed, but I didn't sign up to do a TV show.”
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."

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.

After the more thrilling Insurgent, this saga reverts to the talky style of the original Divergent movie, constantly explaining this post-apocalyptic world's convoluted mythology before indulging in whizzy action that has little to do with the story or characters. It's a strange step back for a franchise that has such a strong cast and high production values. And this movie also feels frustratingly incomplete, because it's only based on the first half of Veronica Roth's third and final novel (a fourth film, Ascendant, is due next year).
When we last saw our hero Tris (Shailene Woodley), she and her hunky boyfriend Four (Theo James) had overthrown the nasty Erudite leaders to create a "factionless" society in Chicago under new leader Evelyn (Naomi Watts), Four's mother. But Evelyn's willingness to indulge in military excesses causes a rift with the more peace-loving leader Johanna (Octavia Spencer), sparking a civil war. Bored with this, Tris and Four free Tris' brother Caleb (Ansel Elgort) from death row and escape over the walls out of Chicago along with cohorts Peter and Christina (Miles Teller and Zoe Kravitz). Fleeing into the fringe, they encounter a peaceful, futuristic community called the Bureau of Genetic Welfare, run by David (Jeff Daniels). There they learn new facts about their past, but they're unable to ignore the unravelling situation in Chicago.
As in the first film, this script is over-packed with long conversations about the society's complicated set-up, and the Bureau has its own set of issues. Some of this information provides welcome context to the earlier films, but the screenwriters also hold back a lot of key details for next time, so this episode is oddly inconclusive. And that also makes it feel dull and contrived, especially since it leaves the characters' motivations so badly muddled. There's also the problem that these movies continually steal ideas and imagery from other films (this time it's Mad Max and The Truman Show).

The upcoming Han Solo origin story is reportedly close to casting its lead actor.
After the success of The Force Awakens, focus is now being turned to the upcoming Star Wars spin-off movies, which begin with Rogue One’s release in December. But also in the pipeline is a Han Solo origin story, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, which is reportedly close to casting the young smuggler.
Is Dave Franco a good fit for a young Han Solo?
According to Variety, after seeing thousands of actors, executives have narrowed the names down to a shortlist over around a dozen actors. Included on the list are, 21 Jump Street’s Dave Franco, Whiplash’s Miles Teller and The Fault in Our Stars' lead Ansel Elgort.
In the third instalment of the Divergent series Allegiant, Tris and Four find themselves plunged into a new world and facing far more dangers than ever before.
In the aftermath of the earth-shattering revelations of Insurgent, Tris and Four must go beyond the wall enclosing Chicago and venture into the unknown, leaving the only city and family they have ever known as they fight to survive.
Outside of their home the pair realise that they have spent their lives being monitored and are already known to the rest of the world. But it soon becomes clear that everything is not as it seems and old discoveries are now meaningless thanks to shocking new revelations.
