Ezra Miller of The Flash just proved that playing a superhero on-screen doesn’t make you above the law in real life. The Justice League star was taken into custody while in Hawaii by police responding to a disorderly patron call. Miller, who portrays the Flash in various DC Universe content, was charged with disorderly conduct & harassment on Sunday.
The charges against Ezra were due to the actor becoming agitated by people singing karaoke. The twenty-nine-year-old Miller started to scream profanities when people patronizing a bar in Hilo, Hawaii started singing. According to the Hawaii Police Department, The Flash star yanked a microphone away from a twenty-three-year-old woman.
In a press release from the Hawaii Police Department, law enforcement added that Ezra Miller also lunged at a thirty-two-year-old man who was playing a game of darts. Miller was allegedly asked to calm down numerous times by the establishment’s owner, but it was a moot point. What could have led the Flash to act so irresponsibly?
Fame gone to the head?
After Ezra Miller’s arrest, their bond was set at $500. Considering Miller’s status as a star of the DC Universe, this was a paltry amount of cash. Miller was later released on bail. Despite being a movie star, Ezra Miller might not be famous enough to earn the status of being a rabble-rouser in public like many other Hollywood types.
In addition to starring in Justice League as the Flash, Ezra Miller has appeared in various other films. Miller got his start as a child actor, appearing in We Need to Talk About Kevin with Tilda Swinton. In the film, Ezra plays the titular character of Kevin, a troubled teenager who plans to carry out a school shooting.
After this breakthrough performance, Miller went on to receive widespread recognition for his role in the hit teen drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Ezra plays Patrick in the movie, a role important enough to earn him a place on the movie poster, standing next to Harry Potter star Emma Watson.
Speaking of Harry Potter, Miller is one of the prominent actors in the Fantastic Beasts spinoff film series. Miller has appeared in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and is set to appear in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. But could this arrest be a PR nightmare for Miller?
Is Ezra Miller canceled?
Judging by what occurred at the bar in Hilo, Ezra Miller may have thought they were too good to be around such a low-brow activity as karaoke. After all, Miller has been acting since they were a teenager. However, according to the statement released by the Hawaii Police Department, the authorities didn’t even recognize them at first.
The report said, “During the course of their investigation, police determined that the man, later identified as Ezra Miller, became agitated while patrons at the bar began singing karaoke.” Perhaps no one at the establishment had seen Miller in films such as Trainwreck or The Stanford Prison Experiment.
Be that as it may, Ezra Miller still has more projects in the works. In addition to The Secrets of Dumbledore coming out this year, Miller has the much-anticipated DC Universe film The Flash coming out in 2023. Along with Miller, The Flash will feature Michael Keaton reprising the role of Batman.
The Flash will also star Ezra Miller’s Justice League co-star Ben Affleck as Batman again, and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. The upcoming film will have a big summer release date of June 23rd, 2023. Hopefully, Ezra Miller can stay out of jail until then.
