On Tuesday night’s Late Show with David Letterman, Miles Teller talked briefly about his upcoming role as Mr. Fantastic in the Fantastic Four reboot.
When the audience cheered over Teller confirming his role in Fantastic Four, Teller said, “Much nicer than some of the people on the Internet.”
Letterman then asked Teller what he was talking about.
“Well, you know, this whole trolling and cyberbullying thing is a real deal,” said Teller. “And it affects…nah, I’m just kidding. But a lot of people don’t think I should be playing Mr. Fantastic and all this stuff.”
Letterman asked, “Why not?”
“I don’t know. Everyone’s got an opinion on it,” said Teller. “Well, you know, it was my dad’s favorite comic. I think people have a certain idea of who that person should be. I don’t care about them, Dave.”
Fantastic Four is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on June 19, 2015.
