Miles Teller is taking on a massive new role!

Replacing Armie Hammer amid the sexual assault controversy, Miles will play the producer Al Ruddy in the upcoming Paramount+ series 'The Offer', based on the behind-the-scenes tale of the making of iconic movie 'The Godfather'. 

Earlier, Armie was set to play the role of the producer but exited due to the allegations of sexual misconduct earlier this year after several women accused him of sending them explicit messages about rape and cannibalism. Ever since, he has been dropped from many projects including Jennifer Lopez action-comedy 'Shotgun Wedding', the thriller 'Billion Dollar Spy and the Broadway show 'The Minutes'.

In addition to starring, Miles will also produce the series.
