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 was most recently seen hosting the first
season of Comedy Central’s “Mash-Up,” a unique new half-hour series – an exciting mix of stand-up and
sketch comedy. He 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. 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 fails to get any other guests on the
show except T.J... every episode.
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. Miller also had a role in Universal’s GET HIM TO THE GREEK with Russell Brand and Jonah Hill.
Miller has a successful voice over career which includes voicing 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. He also voices ‘Tuffnut’ in the Cartoon Network show Dragons, ‘Robbie’
on Disney’s GRAVITY FALLS, and ‘Brad’ opposite Mandy Moore on Fox’s new quarter hour show HIGH
SCHOOL USA! written by Dino Stamatopoulos.
T.J. Miller first came to audience’s attention in 2008 when he starred in the J.J. 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/folk music album (“The Extended Play E.P.”) with
Comedy Central Records. He then remixed his own album with legitimate record label ILLEGAL ART, and
“The Extended Play E.P. Illegal Art ReMixTape is available on iTunes. 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.
