Miles Teller Sees The Spectacular Now

His big break in Rabbit Hole helped put Miles Teller firmly on the radar of every casting agent in Hollywood. He followed that up by stealing scenes as Willard in the Footloose remake. Now he’s set to star alongside The Descendants’ Shailene Woodley in The Spectacular Now.

With James Ponsoldt directing a script by Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter, The Spectacular Now finds Teller as a charismatic high school senior who lives life in the moment. He starts to realise the impact he has on other people’s lives when he begins a relationship with social outcast Aimee Finicky (Woodley).
