Last year's Fantastic Four was a borderline unwatchable debacle, thanks in no small part to studio meddling and a director less interested in making a movie than finding suitable housing for his dogs. The eminently punchable Miles Teller, who managed to out-bland Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards, would be down for a sequel though—likely because the list of people willing to work with him grows shorter by the day.
While promoting his shitty looking new film War Dogs, Teller talked with JoBlo about the potential for a Fantastic Four sequel and he seemed down for another go-around, as if that's ever going to happen. "Yeah, for sure. I loved the cast, I loved the characters. I think it's such an interesting dynamic. I love how much they really need to rely on each other. This Avengers thing, they've kind of created their own Fantastic Four in a way, Marvel's first family. Their powers can't just exist on their own, you need Thor to do this, the Hulk to do his thing. So yeah, absolutely, I would do another one."
He does realize that's never going to happen, right? Apparently not, because he went on to firmly lodge his foot in his mouth moments later when he said, "I can honestly say I've never just done something for money; I'd be really embarrassed for something like that to come out, that I had no attachment to the character, no attachment to the script. It takes a while before you're only working with the best directors, nobody's career is flawless."
Here's where the fun begins!
Just before the release of the legitimately fantastic film Whiplash, Teller did an interview with W Magazine wherein he said the following...
“When I first read Whiplash, I was feeling dead inside,” Teller confided, in a rare display of emotion. At that time, he was in Chicago shooting this past spring’s Divergent. “I didn’t have an interesting part, and I’d taken the film for business reasons: It was the first movie I’d done that was going to have an international audience. I called my agent and said, ‘This sucks.’ He told me about Whiplash.”

Miles Teller 2016: "I can honestly say I've never just done something for money; I'd be really embarrassed for something like that to come out, that I had no attachment to the character, no attachment to the script."
Shit for brains, stop making it impossible for people to like you. You realize that this stuff gets written down, right?
