He received the award earlier this year in recognition of some of the work he has done with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. As one of the ambassadors for LLS, Tyler has taken great pride in being one of the faces for the foundation. He chose this foundation as it is something that is very close to his heart and family. |
Already a recognizable TV star due to the tremendous fan base of “Teen Wolf,” Tyler has begun to establish himself on the big screen as well. Earlier this year, Tyler was seen in the fifth installment of the cult spoof franchise SCARY MOVIE 5, starring Charlie Sheen and Molly Shannon. He also recently starred in the indie film WHITE FROG, as well as in the comedy TACO SHOP, alongside Dan Bakkedahl (HBO’s “Veep”) and Eric Roberts (THE DARK KNIGHT), in which a taco shop in California loses business to a rival taco stand. When given the opportunity, Tyler loves to work on small projects that interest him. In August of 2011, Tyler had the unique opportunity to star in a super video for the band Best Coast, directed by Drew Barrymore, and co-starring Chloe Grace Moretz. The video received critical acclaim after going viral.
Breaking into the comedy world, Tyler received much praise for his recent guest appearances on Comedy Central’s “Workaholics” and TV Land’s “The Exes.” He has done extensive work in television, including recurring roles on ABC Family’s “Lincoln Heights” and ABC’s “Brothers & Sisters.” His previous feature work includes films such as COLLATERAL DAMAGE, alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, and MAID IN MANHATTAN with Jennifer Lopez. He has established himself as a sought after young actor in both film and television.
Tyler was born in Santa Monica, California and later moved to Valencia where he primarily grew up. Tyler started taking bass and guitar lessons at the early age of 12 years old and is now the lead guitarist for his band Disappearing Jamie (formerly called Lost In Kostko), which consists of his closest childhood friends. When he’s not working, Tyler likes to pick up his acoustic guitar and play for hours, go driving, or go to Venice with his buddies to skateboard.
