Earlier this month, sources close to the executive team of the series told DailyMail.com that Teller was responsible for a major coronavirus shutdown of the production over the summer.
‘Miles Teller is not vaccinated. He wouldn’t even get the test,’ the source claimed. ‘Now he’s brought the virus to the set and the whole set had to shut down.’
The actor’s publicist, Lauren Hozempa, denied the accusation.
‘Your facts are incorrect,’ she stated without any further elaboration.

‘Out of an abundance of caution, we have temporarily halted production on The Offer due to the return of a positive coronavirus test result during routine testing,’ a representative for Paramount Television Studios said in a statement at the time. ‘We will continue to follow all safety protocols and monitor the situation closely.’
