Biography CLOSE THE FULL 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).

Notes

"I want you to know one thing: you are looking at the most important X-Man right now! When you see the movie, you will see, the [sic] Sabretooth kicks everybody's ass!" Pausing only briefly to let whoops of approval from the audience die down, Tyler Mane added, "There were a lot of fliers around here saying how people couldn't be here: the X-Men weren't scared to meet you people; they didn't want to come here and see me again! How do you think that dude [Patrick Stewart's character] got in the wheelchair!" --Mane explaining to "X-Men" fans why his co-stars didn't come with him to the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention, May 21, 2000.

"To get ready for Sabretooth, it took me about four hours in a makeup chair everyday. You wouldn't think it would take that long to make me just that bit uglier than I already am." --Tyler Mane at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention, May 21, 2000.

"Try imagining that each sentence written in italics, with lots of exclamation points, and you'll get some sense of [Mane's] over-the-top gusto." --Writer Steve Biodrowski in an article about Mane posted on Fandom.com, June 1, 2000.
