Miles Teller, J.K. Simmons on 'Whiplash,' Drumming and Stoking Passion

19 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Much of the power of the extraordinary film "Whiplash" comes from the interaction between two remarkable performers. This is a star-making role for Miles Teller, an actor who has previously appeared in films like "Rabbit Hole" and the "Footloose" remake, and he's soon to make a further splash in the big-budget "Fantastic Four" reboot and "Divergent" sequel.

J.K. Simmons may be known to most as the dad from "Juno" or J. Jonah Jameson in the previous "Spider-Man" series, but his roles in a series of films by the Coen Brothers, or his inimitable portrayal of Vernon Schillinger on HBO's "Oz" has ably demonstrated his capacity to play almost any role. With a fearsome, nuanced performance, Simmons' role of Terrance Fletcher should, with any justice, garner J.K. a nod at Oscar time.

Moviefone Canada spoke to the two performers during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

[Review] The Living

22 October 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

An interesting choice was made on Jack Bryan‘s film The Living—one that occurred before the camera rolled. If you’re familiar with Fran Kranz‘s emotionally fractured science nerd Topher from Dollhouse and Kenny Wormald‘s coolly confident Ren from the Footloose remake, you’d probably have a pretty good idea of who would play who inside a plot dealing […] »

Whiplash Star Miles Teller Shows Off His Dance Moves

8 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

- By Jarvis!

Miles Teller is certainly on his way to becoming Hollywood’s next It Boy, so it’s a complete miracle that I ran into him today in the VH1 elevator! Since he was so mean and scary in Divergent, I must admit I was a little scared. But luckily he was so nice and chill in person, which totally relaxed me, too! (Well, as relaxed as I can be in the elevator.)

With all the diverse roles he’s played, I didn’t know what to expect. Personally, I feel he’s a little bit of all of them — my favorite being Willard from Footloose. Miles told me all about his real life drum skills that he used in his new film Whiplash, which is Already getting some major Oscar buzz! It should be noted that Miles, a very modest guy, shrugs it off like it’s nothing. »

Spotlight on the Stars: Miles Teller

8 October 2014 5:42 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at an up and comer who’s just joining the A-list, but one who does so with the potential to go to some extraordinary places. I’m talking of course about Miles Teller, someone who really could turn out to be the best actor of his generation. A mix of John Cusack and Vince Vaughn (plus his own unique flavor), Teller is going places, plain and simple. He’s only got about 20 credits to his name, but in his short time on the big screen he’s already established himself as someone worthy of the A-list. Teller got his start pretty quickly when, after only a few appearances in shorts and a guest spot on the TV show The Unusuals, he was cast in a main supporting part opposite Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole. An Oscar player all season long, »

'Whiplash' Star Miles Teller Talks Crying on Command and Wanting to Play Elvis

6 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Miles Teller is on a roll. He broke out as Willard in "Footloose," charmed Shailene Woodley in "The Spectacular Now" and is taking over the role of Reed Richards in the upcoming "Fantastic Four."

In his new film, the Sundance Award-winning indie "Whiplash," he plays a talented jazz drummer who becomes a student of one of the most gifted -- but also most brutal -- teachers (J.K. Simmons of "Oz," and "Spider-Man" fame) who pushes him to the breaking point.

Moviefone sat down with Teller to talk about how he pushed himself for the demanding role, how director Damien Chazelle wrote the part just for him, and why his dream is to play Elvis.

Moviefone: You did your own drumming for this. How long did you train?

Miles Teller: I started playing drums when I was 15. I played in some rock bands and stuff. I took my drums with »

Nyff 2014: ‘Whiplash’ phenomenally explores the line between perfection and sociopathy

1 October 2014 5:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Whiplash

Written and directed by Damien Chazelle

USA, 2014

Originally birthed as an 18-minute short, premiering at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Whiplash went on to garner enough attention to become a feature full-length film. Thank God it did. The feature-length version of Whiplash masterfully showcases the pressures of perfection in a tightly plotted, beautifully shot, soberly performed package. From the creative genius of sophomore director Damien Chazelle comes a semi-autobiographical experience just as exhilarating as it is shocking. Whiplash tells the story of Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller), a promising young drummer who enrolls at an elite music conservatory, where his dreams of greatness are mentored by Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), a ruthless music conductor who will stop at nothing to realize his student’s potential talent. With the audience on the edge of their seats, the question constantly being taunted is thus: how far is too far for pushing a student towards greatness? »

Dylan Sellers Out as Weinstein Company Production President

30 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dylan Sellers is stepping down as The Weinstein Company’s president of production, Variety has learned.

Details of Sellers’ exit have not been finalized.

The move comes less than two years after Sellers was tapped for the role of overseeing the creation of the indie label’s film slate.

The Weinstein Company is gearing up for awards season and betting on films such as “St. Vincent,” “The Imitation Game” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” to return it to the Oscar hunt. It’s been a rough summer for the company, which saw “Begin Again” and “The Giver” underperform, and “Sin City 2,” which it distributed but didn’t finance, flop.

Before joining the studio, Sellers produced such films as “Passenger 57,” “Footloose” and the “Agent Cody Banks” series. He was also a senior production executive at Warner Brothers’ Unique Features, where he oversaw the company’s West Coast production and development arms. »

Julianne Hough Returning To 'Dancing With The Stars' As A Judge - Report

19 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Julianne Hough, who first shot to stardom as a dancer on Dancing With the Stars, could become one of the celebrity dancing show’s full-time judges.

Julianne Hough Heading Back To 'DWTS'

Hough is reportedly in talks to become a fourth judge on Dancing With the Stars, joining the panel that currently includes Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, according to TMZ. Apparently, Hough and producers are in the process of negotiating a deal for her to fill in the spot that was filled by a series of guest judges last season.

Hough created a bit of controversy while serving as one of the guest judges during season 18’s “switch-up” week when she accused Maksim Chmerkovkiy, who was normally partnered with Meryl Davis, of “phoning in” his dance with Danica McKellar. Her brother, Derek Hough, who dances on the show, took to his sister’s defense.

Julianne Hough May Return to 'Dancing With the Stars'... as a Judge

19 August 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's a new rumor on the street and it's not making all "Dancing With the Stars" fans happy.

TMZ got tongues wagging with the news - via unnamed sources - that two-time DWTS pro champion-turned-movie star Julianne Hough may return to the ABC show for this fall's Season 19, but as a judge instead of a competing dancer. Julianne - sister of five-time pro champ Derek Hough - left the show after Season 8 to star in movies like "Footloose" and "Safe Haven," but she's guest-judged DWTS for the past two seasons. TMZ said an offer has been made for Julianne to be the fourth judge, in addition to existing judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

TV Guide picked up the story, and the official Twitter account for ABC Publicity shared a link to TV Guide's version, adding a bit of credence to the rumor.
