Daryl Karolat (born December 8, 1966) is a Canadianmarker actor and former professional wrestler, better known by the stage name Tyler Mane. He is also known for playing Michael Myers in the Rob Zombie films Halloween and Halloween II.

Professional wrestling career

Mane began his wrestling career with WCW in 1989 as "Nitron" the bodyguard for Woman. This gimmick did not last long, and he soon went to Puerto Rico's World Wrestling Council.

Film career

After retiring from wrestling, he appeared in numerous films, including How to Make a Monster (as Hardcore), Joe Dirt, The Scorpion King, Troy (as Ajax), Hercules (as Antaeus), X-Men as Sabretooth (which was his film debut), and The Devil's Rejects (in the uncredited role of Rufus). The role of Sabretooth was initially intended for Mane's former wrestling tag team parter, Kevin Nash, but was awarded to Mane due to Nash's scheduling conflicts. Nash would, however, get a small role in a later Marvel Comics film, The Punisher.

In 2007, he filmed Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween, in which he played the iconic starring role of Michael Myers. After winning the role, he noted that he consecutively watched seven of the eight Halloween films (excluding the third because Michael Myers does not appear) to better understand his character. 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.
