Teller starred in the stage musical Footloose in high school, and later starred in the 2011 remake film of the same name. In 2013, he starred in 21 & Over and The Spectacular Now, opposite Shailene Woodley. In Damien Chazelle’s second film Whiplash (2014), Teller played a drummer who tries to impress his abusive jazz teacher (J. K. Simmons), which earned him nominations for the Gotham Independent Film Award for Best Actor, the Satellite Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture and the BAFTA Rising Star Award. Teller received further recognition for playing Peter Hayes in Divergent (2014), and the film’s sequels, Insurgent (2015) and Allegiant (2016). He has also played Mister Fantastic in the reboot film Fantastic Four (2015), arms dealer David Packouz in War Dogs (2016), and Vinny Paz in the biopic boxer film Bleed for This (2016). In 2017, he starred in two biopic films, Only the Brave and Thank You for Your Service. In September 2021, it was reported that filming on The Offer was paused due to Teller being unvaccinated and subsequently contracting COVID-19. His publicist denied this claim, as has Teller himself. In November 2021, he appeared in Taylor Swift’s music video “I Bet You Think About Me” directed by Blake Lively.
