Tyler Garcia Posey (born October 18, 1991 Santa Monica, California, United States) is an American actor and musician. Tyler is best known for his role as Scott McCall in MTV's show Teen Wolf. Working steadily in film and television for the last decade, Posey is also the frontman of the band 'Lost In Kostko', in which he sings and plays guitar. They performed their first performance in 2012 at The Roxy in LA. One of his first roles was Maid in Manhattan, in which he co-starred with Jennifer Lopez.

In his breakout role, Posey was cast as the lead in the MTV television series of Teen Wolf (a re-imagining of the 1985 film of the same name), as the soft-spoken Scott, a high school student bitten by a werewolf, who has to keep his secret from his loved ones and keep them safe from impending dangers. Because of this role, he has received many comparisons to Taylor Lautner of The Twilight Saga. Posey has known Lautner for a number of years, and actually finds the similarities laughable. He jokes about when a new kid moved into his town who had a similar name to him, and that Lautner later started dating a girl that Tyler liked. He was in fact the runner up for the role of Jacob Black in Twilight that later went to Lautner. 

Posey recently received the role of Doug in the movie White Frog, in which he co-stars with Twilight star, Booboo Stewart. Posey was born in Santa Monica, California, the son of actor John Posey. He lived in Valencia, California, and has two brothers and one sister, Jesse, Derek and Karina. His heritage is Mexican (on his mother's side), and Irish, Scottish, English, and American Indian. He attended Hart High School in Santa Clarita, California.
