When you think of American actors who are attractive, talented and have mass appeal, it’s easy to think of Tyler Hoechlin. The actor who has been acting since 1998 got his big break in 2011 when he was cast in the role of Derek Hale on Teen Wolf, an American television show about Scott McCall – a high school student whose life changes when he is bitten by a werewolf, becoming a werewolf himself. With the help of Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin’s character) and his best friend – Stiles, Scott learns to navigate his new life and his new werewolf abilities.
Tyler also appeared in the 2002 film Road To Perdition which also starred Tom Hanks, Daniel Craig, Jude Law, and Paul Newman. The film was a critical and commercial success and was nominated for six Academy Awards. Tyler also later appeared on Hall Pass, Everybody Wants Some!!, Undrafted, and Fifty Shades Freed.
Apart from Teen Wolf, he has also appeared on several other television shows including 7th Heaven, Castle, Lincoln Heights, and Supergirl where he played the most iconic superhero of all time – Superman. His role as Superman on the show was met with universal applause and it was called one of the best versions of Superman in recent history.
Tyler Hoechlin: Bio & Age
The handsome actor was born to Don and Lori Hoechlin on the 11th of September, 1987 in Corona, California. He has an older sister, Carrie and two brothers – Travis and Tanner. Tyler attended Santiago High School, where he graduated from in 2006.
Before becoming an actor, Tyler was aspiring to become a baseball player. He began playing baseball at the age of seven and played all through high school and even earned a scholarship to attend Arizona State University where he played infield.
While at Arizona State University, his team made it to the College World Series in Nebraska. Tyler later transferred to the University of California Irvine after only a year at Arizona State.
Choosing to focus on Baseball as a career profession, Tyler turned down the role of the Emmet Cullen in the Twilight film series which went on to make a total of $3,346,157,056 from 2008-2012, over the course of five films. He also turned down a meeting with the legendary director – Francis Ford Coppola who has worked with Robert DeNiro, Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Nicholas Cage, Kathleen Turner, Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Gary Oldman and Diane Lane. Francis Ford Coppola is perhaps best known for directing the iconic The Godfather trilogy.
Unfortunately for the actor, he pulled his hamstring during his junior year of university and that restricted his ability to practice and play baseball. This allowed him to focus more on acting and eventually, he decided to pursue the arts full-time.
