Ezra Miller Adds Burglary to Their List of Controversies
Per a report from the Vermont State Police first cited by Variety, embattled actor Ezra Miller has been arrested yet again, this time charged with burglary in Southern Vermont. According to the report, law enforcement found probable cause that Miller entered a house in Stamford when the homeowners were gone and took multiple bottles of alcohol. They have a court date set for the morning of September 26.
Miller’s long list of controversies in 2022 include arrests in Hawaii, one for second-degree assault, and a Rolling Stone report about their living situation in Vermont on an unlicensed marijuana farm accompanied by a mother and her young kids. (The mother of these children told the magazine that Miller helped the family escape her violent ex, and that the large number of guns on the property are “for self-defense purposes.”) Separately, the parents of an 18-year-old Lakota activist, Gibson Iron Eyes, accused the actor of grooming her and sought a restraining order against Miller. Iron Eyes, however, told Insider that those claims were untrue and part of “a disgusting and irresponsible smear campaign.”
Miller’s latest arrest comes during a period of intense online chatter about the future of The Flash, the $200 million standalone debut of the character they have played since 2016. The discourse comes after Warner Bros. surprisingly shelved another big DC project, Batgirl, which was originally slated for an HBO Max release. In that light, some industry observers, including director Kevin Smith, have publicly questioned why the studio is still going ahead with The Flash, which is currently slated to be released on June 23, 2023. It’s possible that Warner releases The Flash, but tries to keep Miller largely out of the press circuit: . As Variety points out, that’s how the studio chose to handle the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which also starred Miller.
The only other film project listed on Miller’s IMDB page is Daliland, Mary Harron’s movie about an older Salvador Dali (Ben Kingsley) and one of his gallery assistants. Miller plays a young Dali.
