MILES TELLER (Andrew) 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 this 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
weatherâ€¦we play baseball all year round." 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 â€˜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.
Ironically Miles was cast once again as Willard, but this time in the new
Paramount film Footloose, which was released in October 2011. He was most
recently seen in Relativity's 21 And Over, Todd Phillips Project X, The
Spectacular Now with Shailene Woodley and recently wrapped production on Get A
Job opposite Bryan Cranston and Anna Kendrick, Two Night Stand with Analeigh
Tipton and Kid Cudi and That Awkward Moment with Zac Efron and Michael B.
He is currently filming Divergent, based on the best-selling novel by
Veronica Roth, which has been compared to similar young adult books such as The
