Miles filmed parts in 3 different films over 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),  Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club – a film of the play Posh by Laura Wade – (click here to see another Jupp-free trailer) and also  The Last Sparks Of Sundown. Owing to some sort of oversight, Miles does feature in its trailer. Which is here.
