Miles Teller to play Dan Aykroyd


You might not know the name Miles Teller just yet but a) you might recognise the face and b) you'll definitely know it by the end of the year.

The 26-year-old actor has already had roles in 21 & Over, Project X and Rabbit Hole and this year he's starring in rom-com for guys That Awkward Moment, teen drama The Spectacular Now and Hunger Games-esque blockbuster Divergent.

And to add to the mix, he's set to play Dan Aykroyd in an upcoming biopic of John Belushi. The news was spilled over the weekend at a Sundance party by Emile Hirsch, already confirmed to play Belushi.

"A shout-out to Miles Teller!" Hirsch told the party goers. "We’re going to be working together soon. He’s playing Dan Aykroyd in the Belushi movie."

While his agents are stating the announcement is premature, they have confirmed that the offer has been made while Teller himself was at the party as Hirsch broke the news.

The untitled John Belushi biopic is being directed by Steve Conrad, who wrote the scripts for The Weather Man and The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty.
