In 1992, during his pro-wrestling time within Mexico with ‘Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre’, Mane made his film debut in ‘Luchadores de las Estrellas’ playing the villain of the movie, El Vampiro Interespacial. While part of WCW, he auditioned for and received a part in the television series Smokey and the Bandit.

After retiring from wrestling, he appeared in numerous films, including X-Men (as Sabretooth), How to Make a Monster (as Hardcore), Joe Dirt, The Scorpion King, Troy (as Ajax), Hercules (as Antaeus), and The Devil’s Rejects (in the uncredited role of Rufus).

In 2007, he played the iconic starring role of Michael Myers in Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween.

He is the tallest actor (6′ 8″) to portray the character. In 2009, he reprised the role again in Rob Zombie’s H2, becoming only the second actor to play Michael Myers more than once, and the only actor to play the role in consecutive films.

In 2010, he and his wife launched their own production company, Mane Entertainment. Their first feature, Compound Fracture, was released in 2013. Their newest production, Penance Lane, began filming in 2016.

In 2016, Tyler costarred in Fuzz on the Lens Productions comedy/fantasy film Abnormal Attraction. He teams back up with Malcolm McDowell (Halloween), Leslie Easterbrook (Compound Fracture) and his wife Renae Geerlings.
