Hollywood star Miles Teller has revealed the pain behind his performance as boxer Vinny Pazienza in the biopic Bleed for This, a role that looks certain to generate Oscar buzz for the actor.

“Physically I was probably the furthest away from a world champion boxer as you could get,” said Teller, speaking to the press gathered at the 21st Busan International Film Festival.

“I needed every minute of every day of eight months just to be close to imitating this man. I can’t stress enough how special this guy is.”

Teller has followed up his breakthrough effort in the Oscar-nominated Whiplash (2014) with a similarly powerful turn as Pazienza, the five-time world champion boxer from the 1980s and 1990s who famously recovered from a near-fatal car accident to make a triumphant return to the ring.

“There is a certain kind of person who when the bullets are flying or the punches are being thrown, they go towards them,” said 29-year-old Teller. “Where that comes from I don’t know.”

Bleed for This, directed by Ben Younger, is set for release in the United States on November 18 before hitting screens across the globe. But it has first been wowing fans this week at BIFF, as it did when it made its world debut at last month’s Telluride Film Festival in Colorado.

Teller will play the lead role of Gilbert, an outcast aardvark, in the story of Noah’s Ark told from the perspective of animals. It’s directed by Kung Fu Panda filmmaker John Stevenson and is currently in production. Unified’s Keith Kjarval and Kurt Rauer produce while Cecil Kramer, a producer on Aardman Animation’s Oscar-winning Wallace & Grommit: The Curse of The Were-Rabbit, exec produces. Unified’s Ben Ruffman and Steve Goldstein also exec produce along with The Fyzz’s Wayne Godfrey and Robert Jones and Watson Enterprises’ Kitt Watson.

Story sees Gilbert become the reluctant leader of a ragtag group of misfit animals that need to be led to the mighty ark before the impending flood. Along their journey, they band together to conquer unforeseen natural disasters, and ultimately, Gilbert discovers within himself the inner strength and ingenuity to prove that a in a world of “twos,” anybody could be “the one,” even a lowly aardvark.

Teller’s known for his performance in Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-winning drumming sensation Whiplash as well as his performances in War Dogs and the Divergent series. Next up, he can be seen in Ben Younger’s Bleed for This, out in November. He recently wrapped Thank You for Your Service and Granite Mountain.

“Gilbert is young, spirited, sarcastic, and we couldn’t have found a more perfect artist to bring Gilbert to life in Miles,” said Stevenson.

Kjarval added: “Miles is an exceptionally talented and comically gifted young man who’s perfect for our hero Gilbert.”

Teller is repped by CAA and Sone, Genow, Semlkinson, Binder & Christopher.
