MILES TELLER, who plays Reed Richards in the 2015 Fantastic Four, made his feature screen debut opposite Nicole Kidman in the film based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Rabbit Hole.”

In this tragic family drama, directed by John Cameron Mitchell, Teller played Jason Willette, a bit of a loner teen who escapes into a world of comic books and science fiction.

Teller stars in the upcoming Martin Scorsese produced film “Bleed For This,” which reunited him with his “Rabbit Hole” costar, Aaron Eckhart.  The film tells the inspirational true story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza, who after a near fatal car crash left him not knowing if he’d ever walk again, made one of sports most incredible comebacks.
