What is Tyler Hoechlin Doing Now

Tyler Lee Hoechlin is an American actor born on September 11, 1987. Previously acclaimed for playing the role of Michael Sullivan Jr. in the movie Road to Perdition (2002), he also appeared in the show 7th Heaven as Martin Brewer. In TV, he is renowned for acting as Superman in the series Supergirl and Superman & Lois and Derek Hale in Teen Wolf. Even though he was a fan favorite, the actor left Teen Wolf after its fourth season. Vaguely founded on the 1985 version with Michael J. Fox, the show started in 2011 and ended in 2017. This was an ensemble crew led by Tyler Poser acting as the main character, a teenage werewolf by the name of Scott McCall. The series had a loyal audience, but it had problems retaining its main cast, with various exits in mid-season(s). Hoechlin left the cast in 2014.

He acted as Derek Hale, an older werewolf that previously guided Scott. In the first sequel, his motivation was revenge. He hunted down his sister’s killer and showed Scott how to adapt to his new form. Things started to change between them in the second season when Hoechlin became an Alpha. Most of their quarrels resulted from his questionable and aggressive methods. Despite this, they were allies, working together on different adventures. As one of the significant cast members, his decision to exit the series at the end of season 4 was detrimental to the show. Show supporters were disappointed, particularly since it was at this point it had suffered various exits. Unlike others whose roles were excluded from the script, Hoechlin’s leaving was his choice. Realizing that Derek was not the main narrative actor as before, he chose to look for other opportunities instead of being a background character in the series.
