Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings

Tyler grew up in Corona and is of a diverse ancestry, with some of his roots being traced back to Ireland, Germany, and Native America. He grew up with an older sister and two brothers. At a young age, he aspired to pursue a career in professional baseball, beginning to play the sport as a child. He participated in several competitions, and continued playing as he attended Santiago High School, known for its athletic program.

After matriculating, he enrolled at Arizona State University under a scholarship that allowed him to play infield with the school’s baseball team, which he helped reach the College World Series held in Omaha.

After a year in the school, he opted to transfer to the University of California, Irvine which had a more prestigious baseball team. He played as second baseman for the UC Irvine Anteaters, and spent his summers playing in college leagues. He also had an interest in acting, and was involved in a few production during his free time, but his sights were set on a baseball career.

Acting History

Hoechlin had turned down a few big productions and auditions due to his commitments with baseball, including from director Francis Ford Coppolla, and a role in the “Twilight” films.

During his third year, he picked up a hamstring injury that limited his capabilities in baseball, and so he decided to take on more auditions, and was eventually advised to pursue an acting career full time. At this time, he already had an agent due to appearing in commercials when he was a baby.

He’d also had a few notable roles as a child, including appearing in the Tom Hanks film “Road to Perdition” when he was 13 years old; the film is based on the graphic novel of the same name, and follows the story of a mob enforcer who tracks another mobster who killed his family during the Great Depression era.

For this performance he won a Young Artist Award and a Saturn Award, which made a lot of producers and directors set their sights on him due to his potential, even as he pursued baseball.

Full-Time Acting

In 2003, Tyler was cast in the role of Martin Brewer for “7th Heaven”; originally intended to be a guest role, his character p,roved popular and was written into the series. For the role, he won a Teen Choice Award and continued winning awards for his entire four-season run with the popular show. After it ended, he took on other roles, such as guest appearances in “CSI: Miami” and “Castle”. In 2011, he worked alongside Christina Applegate in “Hall Pass”.

Tyler Hoechlin

When he fully turned his attention to acting, his first regular role was in the show “Teen Wolf”,

played the role of werewolf Derek Hale during its first four seasons, and reprising his role as a guest in later seasons. He continued to win awards for his work, though he desired to pursue other roles, which is why he didn’t stay with the show for its entire run. He appeared in “Everybody Wants Some!!”, which had sparked his interest due to its connection to baseball. The film received positive reviews, and this led him to seek out more baseball-related roles, including in “Undrafted” but which turned out to be unsuccessful.

Superman and Recent Projects

In 2016, Tyler was cast in the role of Superman in the CW show “Supergirl”, without even auditioning for it. He was the first choice of the producers, and began appearing in the show from its second season. His portrayal of the character has met positive reviews, and he later reprised his role in a few Arrow crossovers, making appearances with characters in “The Flash” and “Arrow”. In 2019, a spin-off was announced by the CW, confirming that he was set to become a regular for a show called “Superman & Lois”.

Apart from his work in “Supergirl”, he also featured in “Fifty Shades Freed” as the author Boyce Fox. He also worked on films such as “The Domestics” and “Bigger” in which he played the role of one of the founders of the International Federation of Bodybuilders. Afterwards he was cast in the film “Then Came You”, and made an appearance in “Another Life”. One of his latest film projects is “Can You Keep A Secret?”, starring alongside Alexandra Daddario, and based on the novel of the same name written by Sophie Kinsella. Another recent project he starred in is the romantic comedy “Palm Springs”, which premiered during the Sundance Film Festival.

Personal Life

Tyler is single, and while he has been in relationships in the past, he is currently single, showing no signs that he is dating anyone. He is close with “Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist thanks to their work in the show together, leading to rumors of them dating which were later denied. He is the shortest actor to play Superman though not by a large margin. He admits that he dislikes playing roles in television shows for long periods, as he doesn’t want to feel that he’s doing the same thing every year. He still loves spending time at the gym.

1[on suiting up as Superman for Supergirl (2015)] The first couple of times it definitely took longer to get into. I started to think that Superman's greatest power was actually being able to just jump into [the suit] as quickly as he does, because it's not quite as smooth the first couple of times you do it.
2[on his portrayal of Superman on Supergirl (2015)] I never try to compare and contrast performances because it's such an iconic character already. Superman is Superman so I'm just going to try to carry on the tradition of that and play that part.
3I'm a mama's boy.
4If I'm in the gym I'll stay for a while, and I'm not usually in a hurry to leave.
5I love going to movies by myself.
6I played baseball my entire life, up through college and everything, so working out and being physically active was always a huge part of my life. I'll spend at least a couple of hours in the gym a day.
7For me, as an actor, one of the biggest fears on a TV show is getting stuck in something where you end up feeling like you're doing the same thing, every single year.
8My girlfriend and I never let each other forget how much we love each other. It's all about reminding the other person how important and special she is to you.
