Miles filmed parts in 3 different films last July. So that’s good. But he also has parts in a few upcoming movies that he filmed in 2013: Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater (click here to see a Jupp-free trailer) and  The Last Sparks Of Sundown. Owing to some sort of oversight, Miles does feature in its trailer. Which is here. The film has just won both Best Director and Best feature at The Chicago Comedy Film Festival. (It’s real. It’s got a website). It has also just been shown as part of the London Independent Film Festival.
