Biography

A professional wrestler in the early 1990s, Tyler Mane turned to acting in 1994, making appearances in "Bandit: Bandit Goes Country," a syndicated TV-movie based on the 1983 feature film "Smokey and the Bandit," and the Fox drama "Party of Five. " That same year, the 6-foot-10, 275-pound Mane, whose real name is Daryl Karolat, also co-starred in a musical comedy about wrestling at San Diego's Lyceum Space, choreographing the hilarious show's "main event." Mane's enormous size and expertise in karate made him a natural choice to play Wolverine's foe Sabretooth in the big-screen version of the Marvel comic "X-Men." The eagerly anticipated flick was released in the summer of 2000 and had Mane acting opposite the likes of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen during his feature-film debut. He followed that up with a small role in the David Spade comedy "The Adventures of Joe Dirt" (2001).
