A rising new talent, New Yorker Ezra Miller, 19, is making a name for himself by playing fascinating characters. Miller actually began his entertainment career as a classically trained child singer. His first film was a film festival favorite – AFTERSCHOOL – in which he portrayed a lonely, troubled and isolated student attending a private school.
In Andy Garcia‘s comedy CITY ISLAND, Ezra Miller played Garcia’s son, a teen with a penchant for fat porn!
Even in ensemble pieces like the Sundance screenplay winner, ANOTHER HAPPY DAY with Ellen Barkin, Kate Bosworth and Demi Moore, Miller subtly steals the picture with his pivotal and unforgettable Elliot, a teen with a serious drug addiction.
Earlier this year, the acclaimed indie film WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN starring Tilda Swinton eerily foretold the Aurora shootings as Miller again dazzled critics as a psychotic under-aged killer with a disturbing relationship with his mother.
Reminiscent of a young John Malkovich, Ezra Miller always delivers rich performances that bristle with intelligence, often nuanced with dark humor. He is a refreshing new face, uniquely different and quirky than the usual lot of new faces that come up through the Disney/Nickelodeon machinery. When he’s not acting, Miller actively tours with his indie band SONS OF AN ILLUSTRIOUS FATHER in the New York tri-state area.
His next project is the highly anticipated THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER with co-stars Logan Lerman and Emma Watson – her first post-HARRY POTTER role.
