Ezra Miller had all the potential of becoming Hollywood’s next big star. The actor, who is nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns, got their start on Californication and showed a lot of promise in feature films like 2008’s Afterschool, 2011’s We Need to Talk About Kevin, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower in 2012.
Miller was cast in the Harry Potter spinoff franchise Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in 2016, along with the two sequels that followed, as Credence Barebone—a role that further proved they could be a force as an actor. Miller was also introduced as The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that year, and continued portraying the character in Suicide Squad and Justice League. They later filmed the standalone The Flash film, due out in the summer of 2023.
Their star seemed bright, but the actor has also been plagued by odd behavior, like telling KKK members to kill themselves using their own guns, along with run-ins with the law which has made their future in Hollywood uncertain. Miller has had a slew of scandals since their start, including a marijuana charge while filming The Perks of Being a Wallflower, allegedly choking a woman on video in 2020, a series of arrests in Hawaii, as well as recent accusations of grooming minors. The allegations and Miller’s conduct have put their career and freedom at risk. So much so that their involvement in the Warner Bros. films is now up in the air, as well as the decision on how the studio will approach The Flash’s release next year.
In case you are not in the loop about all the scandals and chaos plaguing the actor, here is a timeline of some of the most bizarre moments and legal troubles Miller has faced so far. We will update you with more information about their recent scandals as they come out.
