Ezra Miller

Ezra Miller made a career convincingly portraying tormented characters who harbored dark secrets, and had an unfathomable capacity to inflict pain on others as he did in the critically acclaimed drama "We Need to Talk About Kevin" (2011). Yet, he also showcased his range by playing an ultra-cool, extroverted teenager in the indie darling, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" (2012). Miller first made waves on the independent film circuit, beginning with a featured role in "Afterschool" (2008), followed by a string of appearances in indies like "Beware the Gonzo" (2010) and "Every Day" (2010). But it was not until he starred in the chilling drama "We Need to Talk About Kevin" as a teen psychopath who commits a Columbine-like mass murder that Miller truly caught the industry's attention. He continued to make inroads in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," where critics and audiences alike raved about his portrayal of an outgoing and benevolent teenager who helps a shy freshman overcome his insecurities. Undeniably, Miller's performances in both films not only proved his versatility but it also furthered his image as a Hollywood star on the rise.
