“Acting! This week shows off some serious acting chops from pretty much everyone and even includes some cast members’ personal proudest moments. You may have caught a glimpse in the promo of Derek going a little crazy on Mr. Argent. “Crazy” is a side of Derek we don’t often see and Tyler Hoechlin says it was just as much fun to do as it is to watch. “It was really the first time that Derek ever really just let loose and didn’t follow any kind of rules or anything. To really go in and just kind of let everything go was really fun.””—
“We did a funny thing in the beginning. Dylan and I are both huge Friends fans, so in the beginning of the show - I think it was when we shot the pilot, either the pilot or when we were shooting the first season - we had labeled each other all the Friends characters. Posey was Joey. Dylan took Chandler. Colton Haynes who played Jackson, who he is no longer with us sadly, was Ross. And I got Richard, I was Tom Selleck. I was like the cool guy that wanted to hang out with Joey and Chandler.”—Tyler Hoechlin (via tylerhoechlinnews)
“I did do a fun little independent baseball movie that hopefully will be getting cut together here shortly, and I think the goal is to get it to a festival that’s fit for the film, and then see where it goes from there.”—Tyler Hoechlin talking about Undrafted (via teenwolfgossip)
KUCI: I’m gonna take you a few years back. What was going on in your life professionally at the time that the role [in Teen Wolf] came up? Tyler: Uhm… What did happen? Well, I had just recently - I hate saying “retired from baseball” - KUCI: I need to ask you about that too. Because I wanted to ask you in one of my questions. How hard was it for you to make that decision to retire from baseball? Tyler: Oh my god. Do we want to go back to that? KUCI: Absolutely, let’s do it. Tyler: So, retired from baseball. Uhm— that was… I’m trying to think how many times, I can’t count… a couple of times, I literally was sitting in my car after practice kind of shutting down, that I was just like crying in the front seat of my car, trying to hide it from like any of the other guys of the team walking by after practice. It was like the most miserable experience. I can’t even sugarcoat it. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do, to walk away from that.
