Miles Teller will play producer Al Ruddy in the upcoming Paramount Plus series The Offer, the behind the scenes story of the making of The Godfather.

Teller takes over the role from Armie Hammer, whose exit from the series was forced on him due to sexual misconduct allegations.

Teller will executive produce “The Offer” in addition to starring. He is primarily known for his film work, having previously starred in features such as “Whiplash,” “The Spectacular Now,” “Bleed for This,” and “Only the Brave.” He is also set to star in upcoming films such as “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Spiderhead.” On the TV side, Teller starred in “Too Old to Die Young” at Amazon, which was directed and co-created by Nicolas Winding Refn.

The Offer will tell the story of Ruddy’s experience as a producer on “The Godfather” back in 1972. Paramount Plus has given the limited series a 10-episode order.

Nikki Toscano and Michael Toklin co-wrote and executive produce, with Toscano also serving as showrunner. Dexter Fletcher is attached to direct the first and last block of episodes in addition to executive producing the series along with Leslie Greif, Ruddy, and Teller. Paramount Television Studios will produce.

“The Offer” was first announced as being in the works at Paramount Plus when ViacomCBS revealed they were rebranding the streamer CBS All Access. Other shows announced since then include series adaptations of films like “The Italian Job” and “Love Story.”
