Cape Town – We got to watch a pre-screening of the Oscar nominated movie Whiplash.

Since then we’ve been crushing hard on Miles Teller.

And while the young actor has been around for some time, his latest performance bumps him up a notch on the young Hollywood list.

If you’re thinking Miles who?! Have no fear as here’s what you absolutely must know about him.

1) He really does play the drums!

Yes, that really is him playing the drums in the movie. He has been playing since he was 15 and even belonged to a rock band called The Mute. He also plays the saxophone and piano.

2) His first role was alongside Nicole Kidman.

Miles' breakout role was in Rabbit Hole in which he acted alongside Nicole Kidman. According to IMdb Nicole said he blushed and quivered during his audition and that got him the part.

3) He is not dating Shailene Woodley.

Although the pair have been co-stars in The Spectacular Now and the Divergent franchise they are only friends. But he is taken. He is currently dating model, Keleigh Sperry.

Love day????????????

5) He can dance!

He showed off his moves in the remake of Footloose. Some trivia. He played the part of Willard in his school play too. The director saw a recording and wanted him for the same role.

6)  He hates his thumbs?

Miles told Elle that he uses a hand double in movies. According to him his thumbs are fat.

7)  His dream role...

Is to play the king. The king of rock and roll that is. In an interview with W Magazine he revealed that his dream role is to play Elvis Presley. He thinks they look alike and they have things in common like singing and dancing. This fan post had us sold on the idea.

8) He doesn’t have an Instagram account.

This made us very sad. By the looks of it Miles deleted his account but he does have a Twitter account @Miles_Teller. Go on stalk away. You know you want to.
