J.K. Simmons, also known as Juno's dad, stars as an extremely intense music professor who demands a lot from an aspiring drummer, played by Miles Teller. In the clip, which gives us real "Black Swan" vibes, Simmons has his students play the opening part of a composition, insisting that it is wrong each time. Eventually he loses it and throws a chair.

An official release date for "Whiplash" has yet to be announced, but Sony Pictures Classics is handing distribution. 


Here's the clip.
