Tyler Posey: ‘Wolf’ tale

Youth Impact Report 2010: Up Next

According to Tyler Posey, he got pretty close at one point to landing Taylor Lautner’s role in the “Twilight” franchise, so it must be karma that he was picked to star in MTV’s upcoming “Teen Wolf” series, which debuts in early 2011.

“It’s like a full circle, you know?” Posey says. “It’s my destiny to be a werewolf. I’m not complaining.”

Posey got into the business at the insistence of his father, John Posey, a fellow actor. “He took me to my first audition when I was 5 years old. I think I hated it,” Posey says. But in time, he started booking TV spots and small roles in films such as “Collateral Damage” and “Maid in Manhattan.”

According to “Teen Wolf” showrunner Jeff Davis, “He brought a charm to it that we really wanted. We saw him as a kind of Peter Parker type. If he got hit by a bus, (a fellow student) would be like, ‘Huh, I think he sat behind me in math class.'”

Though work is picking up for Posey, including a role in WWE’s “Legendary,” written by his father, the 19-year-old still makes time to skateboard with friends in Venice Beach, or practice with his band Lost in Kostko.
