FOOTLOOSE

Newcomer MILES TELLER had the distinct honor and privilege of making his feature screen debut opposite Nicole Kidman in the film based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play "Rabbit Hole”. In the tragic family drama, directed by John Cameron Mitchell, Miles played ‘Jason Willette', a bit of a loner teen who escapes into a world of comic books and science fiction.

Miles was born in Downingtown, Pennsylvania and during those formative years he developed a love of sports and has remained a die-hard Phillies and Eagles fan. The family moved to Citrus County, Florida when Miles was twelve. "Nice weather…we play baseball all year round.”

In high school Miles pursued his love of music; he and his buddies formed a popular local band "The Mutes” and they were surprisingly good. During his sophomore year he and his best friend auditioned for "Footloose” because "the Drama Club Counselor was really pretty.” His pal got the lead and Miles was cast as Willard, the best friend. As a result he was recruited to attend a six-week performing arts class in New York City at the New York School for Film and TV. Back in Florida he participated in the Florida State Thespian Festival. His monologue was impressive enough to represent his district at the state event. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from high school and auditioned for Julliard and New York University. After what he thought was a disastrous audition, Miles was thrilled that NYU did accept him. This young talent would next star in the hilarious new Todd Phillips ("The Hangover”) film "Project X” for Warner Bros.

Miles now makes his home in Los Angeles and continues making music with his new band "Miles Away From Roscoe”. He sings, plays guitar, piano, and drums, and his passion is 60's and 70's classic rock.
