T. J. Miller
T.J. Miller is quickly becoming one of the most sought after young comedians and actors in the comedy world. He has been named one of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch,” as well as one of Entertainment Weekly’s “Next Big Things in Comedy.” Miller will soon be seen starring in the upcoming Fox comedy series “The Goodwin Games” opposite Becki Newton and Scott Foley. The show will be centered on three siblings who reconnect after the death of their father when he leaves them his fortune. Miller will play the youngest Goodwin sibling ‘Jimmy,’ who has just been released from jail. He will also be seen this October hosting Comedy Central’s “Mash-Up,” a unique new half-hour series – an exciting mix of stand-up and sketch comedy. In addition to his work on TV, he has a popular podcast on nerdist.com "Cashing in with T.J. Miller" which turns the traditional interview comedy podcast on its head, as it's an interview show, but host Cash Levy only has one guest: T.J. Miller.
Miller has also been seen in a number of major studio films. He was recently seen in the Focus Features comedy SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD opposite Steve Carrell and Keira Knightly and in the Warner Brothers 80’s rock musical feature ROCK OF AGES opposite Tom Cruise. He co-starred in The Weinstein Company’s OUR IDIOT BROTHER opposite a cast led by Paul Rudd. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011 to rave reviews and Miller was singled out by critics for his scene-stealing moments. He starred as ‘Ranger Jones’ in the Warner Brothers live-action/CGI feature film YOGI BEAR opposite of Dan Akroyd, Justin Timberlake and Anna Faris. Miller also appeared opposite of Jack Black and Jason Segel in the 20th Century Fox live action 3D film GULLIVER’S TRAVELS and in Tony Scott’s dramatic thriller UNSTOPPABLE opposite of Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. Additionally, he co-starred in the Paramount comedy, SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, where he stole scenes opposite Jay Baruchel. He also voiced the character ‘Tuffnut’ in the hugely successful Oscar nominated Dreamworks animated film HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON alongside Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler and Craig Ferguson. He will reprise his role for the sequel HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. Miller also had a role in Universal’s GET HIM TO THE GREEK with Russell Brand and Jonah Hill.
T.J. Miller first came to audiences attention in 2008 when he starred in the JJ Abrams blockbuster hit CLOVERFIELD. The Sci-Fi thriller opened number one at the box office. Soon after he appeared in Mike Judge’s EXTRACT opposite of Jason Bateman and starred in the ABC comedy series “Carpoolers” opposite of Jerry O’Connell. Miller has also had two short films at Sundance, once as writer and star of the short SUCCESSFUL ALCOHOLICS, later called ‘hilarious’ by The New York Times and last year’s I’M HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME KILLING MY PARENTS, which he also stars in and wrote.
Miller is currently crisscrossing the country performing his critically acclaimed stand-up act. Last year he recorded his first hour long stand-up special for Comedy Central in his hometown of Denver and he also released a comedy oriented pop/hip-hop music album with Comedy Central Records. Whenever available, he performs with his sketch comedy group “Heavy Weight,” with Brady Novak, Mark Raterman and Nick Vatterott. Comedy Central has featured him on their “Hot List” special which focused on the top 10 stand-up comedians of the moment. Miller hails from Denver, Colorado, and toured with Second City in Chicago for almost two years. He also insists on reminding people that he was the Regional Winner of the Sierra Mist Search for the Next Great Comic in 2005.
Miller currently resides in Los Angeles where he struggles to find meaning in an uncertain world.
