The way the people in Hollywood breed their actors, it’s almost asphyxiating. There are almost no actors who just act. They either sing and croon like a blue-jay, or dance and swivel like a divine entity. Miles Teller falls in the middle ground: he can play. His obscure talent came to the forefront with a terrific performance in Damien Chazelle’s electrifying ‘Whiplash’. His eclectic body of work boasts of varied and quality work, which are in itself pieces of art. The passion with which he prepares for his roles reflects in his performances. Miles Teller has been a kind of black sheep, always managing to slip under the radar and outperforming others. Even though he is still in his nascent stages of his career, his mind-boggling fan-following is a testament to his superstar appeal and credentials. Here is the list of top 10 Miles Teller movies.
10. That Awkward Moment (2014)
It is ironic that this piece of garbage came out in the same year as ‘Whiplash’. Nonetheless, the performances were at least decent. The film employs a multi-storied narrative that focuses on the adventurous lives of three bachelors and their tumultuous lives. Teller is one of them, playing the affable Daniel. The three pledge to ditch commitment, but engage in serious relationships, surreptitiously, behind the others’ backs. The chemistry between the triumvirate leads is absolutely terrific. They compliment each others’ strength and gleefully cover the shortcomings. Teller does a fine job in establishing some sort of credibility with a decent enough performance.
9. Footloose (2011)
