UPLOADED RESUME
  • *
    Tyler Mane constantly breaks boundaries and defies expectations.

    Certainly he's got an undeniable physical prowess, but the actor imbues a
    tangible humanity into every role he plays, whether he's donning the mask
    of Michael Myers in Halloween and H2 or the crown of King Ajax in Troy. He
    can be the villain or the hero, and that versatility is what makes each one
    of his performances memorable.

    It's been quite the road from Saskatoon, Sasketchawan to Hollywood for
    Tyler. In 1986, he officially began his professional wrestling career.
    Studying with the legendary Hart family, Tyler developed a formidable
    presence that would see him dominate rings in the NWA and WCW for years.

    However, wrestling was just the first big step on Tyler's journey. "I was a
    tall skinny kid with glasses and braces who was always picked on,” he
    reveals. “I felt like an outcast, and I decided I was going to do something
    about it. I dreamt of wrestling and acting as an action star. I was digging
    acting before anything, but I knew I needed a stepping stone to get there.
    Wrestling gave me that"

    Tyler formally hung up the wrestling boots in 1999, and he fully immersed
    himself in acting, realizing his dream. As Sabretooth in 2000's big screen
    adaptation of X-Men, he finally ripped right through pop culture in a big
    way. "When we were filming, I knew we were doing something big; I just
    didn't know how big it was going to be. It was another nice bridge to where
    I am today. It felt pretty badass."

    Things got even more badass when Tyler sunk his teeth into classic Greek
    Mythology alongside Brad Pitt and Eric Bana in the 2004 hit Troy. Tyler
    goes on, “King Ajax is one of those phenomenal characters in history that
    you hope you get a chance to play, and I was lucky enough to do."

    Soon after Troy, Tyler formed a bond with Rob Zombie with his turn as Rufus
    in The Devil's Rejects. That relationship inspired Rob to pen his take on
    Halloween with Tyler in mind for Michael Myers. Together, they created a
    darker, deadlier and deeper character.

    Tyer adds, "I like the fact that Michael Myers is a tormented, tortured
    human being. The way he expresses himself is through violence. In H2, he's
    out amongst society, and he's still wearing his mask with the big beard
    that I had. He's always hidden himself and withdrawn from society. In my
    mind, Michael was trying to reunite with the only family that he know--
    Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton). I wasn't approaching it as I'm trying
    to kill her. His only connection to humanity, so to speak, was Laurie."

    The character became much more intricate in Tyler's deft hands, but he
    still conjured a viable darkness on screen. "Every kill was someone who
    tried to get in Michael's way and stop him from reuniting with his family.
    There might have been one or two thrown in for though," laughs Tyler.

    He's a powerful presence and he takes over the scenes he's in, but there's
    a genuine emotional element to everything he does. That's what makes
    Tyler's Michael Myers so real. Tyler will be slashing through Hollywood
    again with the official launch of his production company, Mane
    Entertainment. The company's first to projects, Compound Fracture and
    Penance Lane are well underway.

    He explains, "I started up Mane Entertainment because I wanted to create
    quality projects at a reasonable price. Instead of waiting around for
    projects, I figured I'd build my own from the ground up. I want to have an
    active hand in the whole piece instead of simply acting. I went from the
    small-town kid to a wrestler to an actor to a producer with my own company.
    The next step is for me to be the visionary at the helm.

    Ultimately, it's always about giving back. Whether Tyler's dominating a
    scene in a film, overseeing production on set, he leaves audiences with a
    part of himself.

    "I want people to enjoy anything I'm involved in. I want them to escape
    reality. I hope they get taken away by the performance and the film.”
    That's the aim of all great performers, and Tyler's doing it. - Rick
