Miles Teller Suits Up for 'Da Man'
Here’s what the 23-year-old Rabbit Hole actor had to share with the mag:
On working with Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart: “[They] are incredible actors and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to film acting. I felt like I was taking a master class and just wanted to observe and retain as much as I could. With magnetic actors like Aaron and Nicole, it’s hard to pinpoint what it is they’re doing in the scenes to try and take notes from, but it’s more a matter of how they control a space and won a scene.”
On working in the upcoming Footloose remake: “I play the role of Willard. He’s the local country yokel, who befriends the city boy and shows him what small-town living is all about and [he] teaches me how to dance. It’s a great part. I played the part seven years ago in high school and to play it in this film is awesome.”
On the biggest challenges of being an actor: “The instability of it all. I’ve been fortunate enough where I haven’t experienced its pitfalls yet, but I know they’re never too far away. The hardest part for me ha been the distance it has put between me and my family and friends.”
