Miles Teller        

Actor Known for His Roles in"The Spectacular Now," "Whiplash" & "Fantastic Four"

Miles Alexander Teller is an American actor. For his performance in the film, "The Spectacular Now," he won the Dramatic Special Jury Award for Acting at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. He has appeared in the films "Rabbit Hole" (2010), "Project X" (2012), "That Awkward Moment" (2014), and "Divergent" (2014).

Teller was born in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, the son of Merry, a real estate agent, and Mike Teller, a nuclear plant engineer. His parents are from Carneys Point, New Jersey. He has two older sisters. He lived in several places as a child, because of his father’s career, spending time in Citrus County, Florida, after moving from Cape May, New Jersey. In high school, Teller played the saxophone, was a drummer for a church youth-group band, and was president of the drama club. He graduated from Lecanto High School in 2005. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.

Before making his feature film debut, Teller appeared in many short films. He made his debut in 2010’s "Rabbit Hole." Teller appeared in the stage musical, "Footloose" in high school. Years later, he was cast in the film remake of "Footloose," starring Kenny Wormald, in which he played the same character as in his high school musical.

In 2013, he starred in "21 & Over," written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. That year, he began reaching critical success after starring in the James Ponsoldt film, "The Spectacular Now," for which he won the Dramatic Special Jury Award for Acting at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, with co-star Shailene Woodley.

In 2013, he appeared in an in-depth interview and photo shoot in Hero magazine. Teller returned for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival with the premiere of "Whiplash." Early in 2014, he starred in "That Awkward Moment," alongside Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan, and appeared in "Divergent," opposite Woodley.

In January 2014, Teller was cast to portray Dan Aykroyd in Steve Conrad’s untitled John Belushi biopic. In February 2014, he was cast in "Fantastic Four" as Mister Fantastic.
