With Armie Hammer exiting so many projects due to his many controversies, there’s been a need to find actors to replace him, and quickly. In the case of the making-of The Godfather series, The Offer, Miles Teller is the one to step up.
Variety reports Miles Teller will take over the role of producer Al Ruddy, which Hammer vacated a few months ago. The scripted Paramount+ series will center on Ruddy’s experiences producing Francis Ford Coppola’s iconic 1972 mob drama, winning an Oscar that year for Best Picture. Showrunner Nikki Toscano will co-write the script alongside Michael Tolkin, with Dexter Fletcher (Rocketman) helming the pilot.
Next up for Teller is the long-awaited Top Gun: Maverick. He also has Sean Penn’s Flag Day coming up.
