You know how philosophers, self-help gurus and aging rock stars are always talking about living in the now? Well, there's pretty much nobody around having a better now than Miles Teller, who last year got his breakthrough role in "Footloose" and then followed it up with another smash hit in "Project X."
So it's only fitting that according to Deadline, Teller has just signed on to costar opposite Golden Globe nominee Shailene Woodley in "The Spectacular Now." Hey, when you got it, you got it.
Based on the popular novel of the same name by author Tim Tharp, "The Spectacular Now" tells the story of a high school student named Sutter Kelly (that's Teller) who excels at one thing in life: Being super cool. Which is all he needs, right up until the moment he meets a socially backwards gal named Aimee (that's Woodley) and realizes he has the power to change her life.
Okay, so it sounds like pretty much every other awkward teen dating movie. But considering the book has received beaucoup bon mots from the critics, we're guessing that Teller and Woodley — who's having a pretty spectacular now in her own right thanks to her Golden Globe nomination for "The Descendants" — can turn the film adaptation into something pretty darn cool in its own right.
A bright future and an amazing now? That's a philosophy we can all embrace.
