To Top

Miles Teller is known for playing shallow party-boy types. You may remember him from 21 and Over, That Awkward Moment or Project X. But, recently the 28-year old Pennsylvania native was nominated for an Oscar for his outstanding performance in Whiplash, the dramatic film about a determined music student. Teller comes off as your average boy-next-door with a great sense of humor and a goofy smile, but he’s also a great actor with a bright future ahead of him. Here are nine reasons why we all want to be Miles Teller, Hollywood’s newest “it guy.”

1. You’ll Be Inspired by Why He Started Acting

When asked how he got into acting, Miles said, “I got into acting my junior year of high school. We got a new hot drama teacher and I was like ‘Alright, I’ll try drama.'” Let’s be honest we all joined random clubs in high school because the teacher was good looking. We’re just glad he chose drama.

2. He’s Got Some Moves

Miles starred in Footloose twice! He played Willard in his high school’s stage production of the classic film and went on to star as the same character in 2011 remake. The actor admits, “I always felt like I could dance. I’m the first one out on the dance floor. In college I had to take jazz, ballet and tap dancing, but, before that, it was just social.” Who wouldn’t love to tap dance next to that mischievous grin?
