ROAD TO PERDITION
TYLER HOECHLIN (Michael Sullivan, Jr.)
was an unknown 13-year-old actor from Corona, California when he was chosen from
among more than 2,000 young actors across the country for the coveted role of
Tom Hanks' son in "Road to Perdition."
Hoechlin began studying acting in early 1997 at
the age of nine. He trained at the Young Actors Space, The Krys Kyer Workshop,
the Beverly Hills Acting Studio and with Warner Loughlin. He landed his first
film role in "Family Tree," which was screened at the 1999 Cannes Film
Festival. In 2001, he starred in the independent film "Train Quest,"
which was shot in Romania.
In addition to his acting, Hoechlin is a
stand-out baseball talent. He began playing at the age of seven and represented
his country as a member of the U.S. team in the Pan American games when he was
only nine. He currently plays shortstop for the Corona Wolverines. He and his
younger brother, Tanner, are home schooled by their mother, a former accountant,
and their father, an E.R. doctor.
