THAT AWKWARD MOMENT
MILES TELLER (Daniel) is a young actor on the rise. He was
most recently seen in the critically acclaimed Sundance hit The Spectacular Now,
opposite Shailene Woodley. Teller had the distinct honor and privilege of making
his feature-film debut opposite Nicole Kidman in John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit
Hole, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play. In this tragic family drama,
Teller played a loner teen who escapes into a world of comic books and science
Teller's upcoming projects include Get a Job, opposite Bryan Cranston and
Anna Kendrick; Two Night Stand, with Analeigh Tipton and Kid Cudi; and
Divergent, a potential blockbuster based on the bestselling novel by Veronica
Roth that stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Kate Winslet.
Previous work includes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore's 21 And Over and Todd
Phillips' Project X.
Teller was born in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, and during those formative
years he developed a love of sports. He remains a die-hard Phillies and Eagles
fan. The family moved to Citrus County, Florida, when Teller was 12. During his
sophomore year Teller auditioned for the school production of "Footloose" and
was cast as Willard, best friend of the lead. As a result he was recruited to
attend a six-week performing-arts class at the New York School for Film and
Television in New York City.
Back in Florida Teller participated in the Florida State Thespian Festival.
His monologue was impressive enough to represent his district at the state
event. Ironically, soon thereafter Teller was cast once again as Willard, but
this time in the new remake of Footloose, which was released theatrically in
Teller graduated from high school summa cum laude and was accepted at New
York University. He now makes his home in Los Angeles.
