MTV’s new show Teen Wolf premiered after the Movie Awards last night, and we got a look at the show’s star, Tyler Posey. He’s been called the next Taylor Lautner, so you might want to keep your eye on this hot up-and-comer. Here are five things to know about the werewolf of an actor:
1. Tyler’s 19 years old. He grew up in Santa Clarita, outside of Los Angeles. He’s got two brothers, named Jesse and Derek.
2. Teen Wolf isn’t Tyler’s first rodeo. He’s appeared on episodes of shows like Brothers & Sisters, Lincoln Heights and Smallville.
3. He plays in a band called Lost In Kostko, singing and handling the guitar.
4. He may not really be part wold, but Tyler’s ethnicity is quite a mixed bag. He’s Irish, Scottish, English, and American Indian.
5. Tyler’s father’s an actor as well. In fact, Pop Posey played Danny Tanner in an early Full House pilot. Hilarious!
