Miles Teller Interview - Only the Brave
Miles Teller describes Brendan McDonough, the character he plays in Only the Brave, which is based on a real event, as someone who was abusing substances and was in and out of jail. He says getting a job with the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a crew of 20 firefighters, probably saved his life and gave him purpose. Miles describes the Hotshots as the highest level of wildland firefighters that exist in the United States and reveals he and the rest of the actors felt a real responsibility to the real Granite Mountain Hot Shots to get their story right. Finally, he describes director Joseph Kosinski as amazing, saying he's a big fan of his work.
