RISING STARS : DIANNA AGRON and MILES TELLER Dianna Agron | Dianna is on her way to becoming one of the most versatile and sought after talented young actresses in Hollywood. She was recently seen playing Quinn Fabray on Fox’s hit television series Glee for which she has been nominated for three Teen Choice Awards. The cast has also won ‘Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble’ at the 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards and two Golden Globe Awards for ‘Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.’ Agron starred in I Am Number Four in 2011 and will next be seen in Luc Besson’s The Family, which follows the notorious Manzoni family when they relocate to Normandy under the witness protection program. Fitting in becomes challenging as their old habits die hard. The film also stars Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Tommy Lee Jones. Miles Teller | Miles made his feature screen debut opposite Nicole Kidman in the film based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Rabbit Hole. In this tragic family drama, directed by John Cameron Mitchell, Miles played Jason Willette, a bit of a loner teen who escapes into a world of comic books and science fiction. In October of 2011, Miles was cast as Willard in Paramount’s remake of Footloose. He was recently seen in Relativity’s 21 And Over and Todd Phillips’ Project X. He also starred in the 2013 Sundance hit The Spectacular Now with Shailene Woodley and recently wrapped production on Get A Job opposite Bryan Cranston and Anna Kendrick, Two Night Stand with Analeigh Tipton and Kid Cudi, and Are We Officially Dating with Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan. He is currently filming Divergent, based on the best-selling novel by Veronica Roth, which has been compared to similar young adult books such as The Hunger Games. Miles now makes his home in Los Angeles.
