About the nominee
Miles Teller had the distinct honour 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 at the age of 11 moved to Citrus County, Florida.
Miles was cast in Paramount’s film Footloose in 2010 which was released in October 2011. He also appeared in Todd Phillips' Project X that year.
In 2013, he starred in 21 & Over, written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. That year, he began reaching critical success after starring in the James Ponsoldt film, The Spectacular Now, for which he won the Dramatic Special Jury Award for Acting at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, with co-star Shailene Woodley.
In 2014, he co-starred in the comedy That Awkward Moment, alongside Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan, appeared in the science fiction film Divergent opposite Shailene Woodley, and also appeared in Sony Pictures Classics critically acclaimed drama Whiplash, which received the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at Sundance and the Deauville Film Festival and also landed Miles a Best Actor nomination for the 2014 Gotham Awards.
Miles recently wrapped Fox’s The Fantastic Four with Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, which will be released in August 2015, and he is currently in production for the Martin Scorsese produced film Bleed For This, which reunited him with his Rabbit Hole co-star, Aaron Eckhart, and is the inspirational true story of World Champion boxer Vinny Pazienza. Pazienza, after a near fatal car crash which left him not knowing if he'd ever walk again, made one of sport's most incredible comebacks.
Miles now makes his home in Los Angeles.
