Miles Teller

“She said I wouldn’t graduate high school and that I would be a juvenile delinquent!” laughs Hollywood renaissance man Miles Teller, remembering the off-base prediction his second grade teacher made about his future prospects. Needless to say, the 27-year-old dodged juvey. The actor’s rare talent is to please all audiences, whether bros (frathouse comedies like Project X), arthouse patrons (Rabbit Hole) or multiplex crowds (as Mr Fantastic in Marvel’s forthcoming The Fantastic Four). 2015 looks to be even bigger, with an Oscar-tipped lead in music drama Whiplash, about an obsessive jazz drummer one mistake away from being thrashed by his strict teacher. “I had a good amount of bloody blisters,” he shrugs, “but at the end of the day, you live and die by the performances you’re giving. You keep doing the same thing and people stop watching.”
