Steve Tyler's award-winning acting career spans three decades, two coasts, and many national borders. He has appeared everywhere from the page to the stage, and from billboards to screens large and small. A familiar face to many, Mr. Tyler has acted in over 20 films, many television shows, and nearly 250 commercials. Steve was the original "Kool" Cigarette Man in billboards worldwide. He is known for his ability to inhabit diverse roles, and for his charismatic presence.
He is perhaps best known in film for the "straight man" roles in Farrelly Brothers films, such as "King Pin", in which he played the oblivious gas station attendant opposite Bill Murray, Randy Quaid and Woody Harrellson. Or, the baffled doctor who delivered Jim Carrey's babies in "Me, Myself and Irene". And don't forget the obnoxious reporter who stalked Ben Stiller in "There's Something About Mary" or the confused waiter with Jack Black and Gwyneth Paltrow in "Shallow Hal". In "Stuck On You" Steve Tyler and Dane Cook play detective partners and steal the show while arresting Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear. Mr. Tyler's other screen credits include "A River Made o Drown In" with Richard Chamberlain and Michael Imperoli, and "Boys Life 3", written and directed by Jason Gould.

He also co-created and co-produced "The Body Kick" a television pilot in association with Maurice Duke and Columbia Pictures.
