Miles Teller Can Actually Drum! Watch Him Flaunt His ‘Whiplash’ Skills With The Roots
Rising star Miles Teller has already gotten a lot of attention for his next role: starring in the jazzy thriller 'Whiplash' as a young drummer (of the jazz variety) who finds himself pushed to the breaking point by a somewhat crazy (and definitely offensive) teacher, played by J.K. Simmons. The film is pretty heavy on the music, and within minutes, it's obvious that Teller couldn't have faked the musical side of his performance. Like, at all.
Turns out, he didn't! Teller hit 'The Tonight Show' last night to chat with host Jimmy Fallon about the film and his own attachment to drumming. Teller actually comes from a very musical family, and the actor has been playing the drums on his own since the age of 15. So does that mean he can hold his own against the world famous Roots band? Well, check it out.
