Tyler had a certain “it” factor about him that he hadn’t seen in many other leading male roles in current films. “It seems like in a lot of ways main characters in other movies, when there is a young guy who is the lead he always seems like a vessel, [he] always [has] to be so naive and ridiculously innocent so the audience can feel that with [him] in the story,” he explained. “Tyler didn’t feel like that. He was a very specific character.”
