Oh Goodie, They've Cast The Human Equivalent Of Bland Tapioca Pudding To Play Dan Aykroyd In A Biopic
Miles Teller? He’s a thing I don’t get. And he’s no longer just a teenage phenomenon that I can ignore while geriatrically shoving people off my lawn. Outside of his teen-friendly projects (Footloose, Divergent, That Awkward Moment), Teller is fast becoming hot sh*t in the film world. I realize I’m in the minority* when it comes to not being wowed by The Spectacular Now, but I’m of the opinion that Teller is nothing more than a cut-rate, low-rent, I SERIOUSLY DON’T GET IT version of John Cusack.
Emile Hirsch let it slip that Miles Teller has been cast (or at least offered) the role of a young Dan Aykroyd opposite Hirsch’s John Belushi in the upcoming Belushi biopic. Hirsch is an actor I love and support. He doesn’t get nearly enough work. But Teller? I wish he’d stay in the teen-sphere and keep his hands off my favorite Canadian. Ugh, this is why I drink.
*My views on Teller and The Spectacular Now are in no way reflective of Pajiba as a whole. In fact, I may be fired for writing this.
