Miles Teller (born February 20th 1987) is an American actor best known for his appearance in 'The Spectacular Now'.
Childhood: Miles Teller was born in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. His parents are real estate agent Merry Teller and nuclear plant worker Mike Teller. Miles lived in various places growing up including Citrus County, Florida and Cape May, New Jersey. He attended Lecanto High School and learned to play the saxophone and the drums, even becoming the drummer for his local youth group's church band. He later attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts where he landed a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
Acting career: Miles Teller started out his acting career with several short films such as 'Moonlighters' (2004), 'A Very Specific Recipe' (2007), 'The Musicians' (2008) and 'The Track Meet' (2010). His first full-length movie was 'Rabbit Hole' in 2010 and the following year he appeared in the remake of 'Footloose', after already appearing in a stage version at school. After roles in 2012's 'Project X' and 2013's '21 & Over', he landed success as the lead in James Ponsoldt's 'The Spectacular Now' opposite Shailene Woodley for which he won a Dramatic Special Jury Award at Sundance. That year he was also cast in the music drama 'Whiplash' in which he uses his real life drumming skills.
In 2014, he appeared alongside Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan in the comedy 'That Awkward Moment' and worked with Woodley again on teen sci-fi movie 'Divergent'.
Personal life: Miles Teller is currently in a relationship with model Keleigh Sperry.
In his new movie Bleed For This, Miles Teller goes against type to play boxer Vinny Pazienza
Pazienza won world championships in three weight classes and kept fighting even after a crippling car accident, after which he wasn't supposed to even walk. "This comeback is the greatest comeback in sports history, and it's real," Miles Teller says. "It's not some phony, fictionalised movie based on a true story. This is real. This happened. And I just think that's so inspiring for anyone. It transcends boxing."

After building a career playing sensitive young men in films like The Spectacular Now and Whiplash, Teller knew he wasn't the logical choice for this role. "I was like, 'This part is going to be really great for someone else,'" he laughs. "I really wasn't thinking that a director would see me as anything other than a guy who's been in some independent films where he's played a high schooler and then he's done some post-college comedies or romantic comedies."

The actor is just taking in all the negativity.
Just as Fantastic Four hits cinemas, its leading man Miles Teller has found himself engulfed in a social media scandal due to his habit of answering interview questions with an uncanny frankness.
Miles Teller plays Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four reboot
After the 28-year-old was described as "kind of a d**k" by Esquire writer Anna Peele, Teller's Fantastic Four director and cast mates immediately leapt to his defence, while Teller himself tweeted that the tone of the article was "very misrepresenting".

The Marvel Comics adaptation has opened to extremely poor critical notices.
Director Josh Trank has taken action to distance himself from the critically derided reboot of Fantastic Four, appearing to claim that the studio, 20th Century Fox, was at fault for interfering with his “fantastic” vision of the movie.
The movie, which is the third such attempt to launch a big screen franchise out of the Marvel Comics tale, has been roundly panned by reviewers in the last couple of days since its August 4th premiere. Starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan and Toby Kebbell, it currently holds a 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the worst reviewed superhero movie of 2015 thusfar.
Toby Kebbell stars as the villain in the new 'Fantastic Four' movie
Until the special effects take over in the final act, this is an unusually gritty, grounded superhero thriller, with characters who are so believable that the wacky science almost seems to make sense. This is Marvel's very first franchise, and the filmmakers are unable to resist the pressure to indulge in an overblown finale, and the digital mayhem they give into is oddly unexciting. So as an origin story, this film is more involving than most, but the superhero action itself feels rather limp.
It opens as an exploration of the school friendship between the misunderstood genius Reed (Miles Teller) and junkyard bully Ben (Jamie Bell), whose teleportation science experiment gets them in trouble. But Dr Storm (Reg R. Cathey) sees that their work solves a problem he has encountered in his own experiments, so he brings Reed to New York to join his well-funded, high-tech team. Working with Victor (Toby Kebbell) and Storm's children Sue and Johnny (Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan), Reed builds a full-size teleporter that succeeds in crossing over to another dimension. And Ben joins the crew for an illicit first voyage that goes spectacularly wrong, leaving Victor on the other side, while Reed, Ben, Sue and Johnny emerge with superpowers caused by altered DNA. The big boss (Tim Blake Nelson) immediately starts training them for military action, but Reed remains determined to make things right.
A strong cast helps all of this play out with remarkable introspection, letting each character develop an organic back-story that brings them together as an uneasy team. The inter-relationships are complex and engaging, veering from rivalry to camaraderie. Teller anchors the film with a layered performance as a smart, troubled guy who struggles to maintain friendships as he focusses on his work. Mara and Johnson add some feisty attitude, but it's Bell and Kebbell who provide the spark of personality that makes this crew so engaging. Then both of them become animated characters (Bell as The Thing and Kebbell as Dr Doom) without even a hint of the actors visible underneath. And the movie never quite recovers its momentum.

After years of work and millions of dollars in funding, Dr. Storm has come up with nothing to show for all his work into interdimensional travel. That is, until the arrival of Reed Richards (Miles Teller), who demonstrates such an understanding of the science they are studying, that the project is finished shortly afterwards. Now Reed, Storm's children Susan (Kate Mara) and Johnny (Michael B. Jordan) and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) are sent to test the machine. But something goes wrong - having successfully travelled to another dimension, the four children are changed forever, in ways they never could have imagined.
