In my previous post I talked about a personal friend of mine Tyler Gallant. I thought it best to give a short list of why I think he’ll be up to the task of filling the shoes of Eric Draven.
- The most obvious reason that Tyler Gallant looks like he came straight out of James O’Barr’s comic. He even has the hair so there is no need for a wig!
- Like any great actor, Tyler understands the motivations of his character. Tyler does research, works with his acting coach to get the most out of the character, and he finds out what makes his character tick. I got to see this first hand on the set of Wonder Woman: Molded from Clay. Even between takes he stayed in character. He would play with a line where he knew he had room to play with it and he watched as we all reacted. He saw what worked and what didn’t and at the end of it all he had us full of laughter and awe.
- Gallant is athletic. I don’t know if you could tell from the photo, but the dude is ripped. He was once a pro hockey player in the minor leagues with the Utah Grizzlies, Amarillo Gorillas, Arizona Sundogs, Odessa Jackalopes, Queen City Storm and Knoxville Ice Bears. He’s been trained in boxing, hockey fighting, and has worked with a professional MMA athlete.
