He fared less well, seeming miscast as an ambitious twenty-something who is obsesses with his career and clueless to his wife's frustrations in Alan Rudolph's "Afterglow" (also 1997). Miller made his US TV debut in "Larry McMurtry's Dead Man's Walk" (ABC, 1996), a prequel to "Lonesome Dove" in which he essayed the role of Woodrow Call, played by Tommy Lee Jones in the original.

In Plunkett & Macleane (1999), he played a highway robber in 18th century England whoalong with his partner (Robert Carlyle)enriches himself with goods taken from British societys wealthy elite.

For the adaptation of Jane Austens novel, Mansfield Park (1999), Miller played Edmond Bertram, cousin and soul mate of Fanny Price, a ten-year-old lifted from poverty to live with her wealthy relatives. After appearing as the daring assistant of vampire hunter Van Helsing (Christopher Plummer) in Wes Craven Presents: Dracula 2000 (2000), he was a lowly courier who leaves his dead-end job and convinces his best mate (Jude Law) to join a North London gang that eventually gets bloody with their South London rival. He then appeared in Mindhunters (2005), a dumb and obnoxious horror flick courtesy of Renny Harlin that depicted a team of FBI profilers sent on a training mission that becomes dangerously real. After a role as a tippling actor in Woody Allens return to form, Melinda and Melinda (2005), Miller had a supporting part in Aeon Flux (2005), a futuristic actioner about a top underground operative (Charlize Theron) sent to assassinate the leader (Marton Csokas) of a totalitarian government disguised as the perfect society.
