Nurturing an impressive body of work that encompasses comedy and drama, Tyler Labine's career continues to evolve with exciting and challenging projects. "Labine is inherently funny" and "automatic laugh-getter" are just a few examples of what people are saying about his recent performances.

Labine recently finished working with Justin Long on the comedy "Lumpy," in which he plays the title character. The story, about the best man at an Arizona destination wedding, Lumpy is the life of the party, until a long, indulgent night leads to his untimely death.

Labine also recently starred as Dale in "Tucker and Dale vs. Evil." The film, a hilariously gory, good-spirited horror comedy, follows two best friends on vacation at their dilapidated Appalachian mountain cabin that are mistaken for murderous backwoods hillbillies by a group of obnoxious, preppy college kids. When one of the students gets separated from her friends, Tucker and Dale try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and Labine recently won the Leo Awarded for Best Lead Male Performance in a Feature Film for his work. The film has won the Audience Award and Midnight Movie Award at the South by Southwest Film and Music Festival, the Jury Prize for Best First Feature at Montreal's Fantasia Film Festival and the award for Best Feature Film from the AMPIA (Alberta Media Production Industries Association). His other film credits include "My Boss's Daughter" with Ashton Kutcher, "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" with Seth Rogan, "Mr. Rice's Secret" and the feature film "The Zero Sum," with Even Bremmer. Labine was also seen in "Flyboys," the story of a group of young Americans who volunteered for the French military before the United States entered World War I, and became the country's first fighter pilots.

Segueing effortlessly between the big and small screens, Labine recently stole the show on the CBS comedy "Mad Love," about a foursome of New Yorkers looking for love. He starred in the CW drama "Reaper" for which he won back to back Leo Awards for Best Lead Performance by a Male in a Dramatic Series. Labine is also known for his role as a series regular on the ABC science fiction show "Invasion," as Dave Groves, a man who harbored conspiracy theories, as well as a starring role as ADA Jonathan Winant on ABC's hit legal show "Boston Legal," which won 5 Emmy Awards and 4 Golden Globe Awards during its 5-year run. He also starred in the Fox series "Sons of Tucson" and enjoyed the challenge of portraying John Belushi in the television film "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized story of 'Mork & Mindy.'"

In addition to his aptitude for acting, Labine continues to pursue his musical and creative talents. In 2004, Labine produced the film "Everyone," which won the Best Film Award at the Montreal Film Festival. He and his brother, Cameron, co-wrote the film "Control Alt Delete" in which Tyler starred/produced and Cameron directed. Additionally, he executive-produced, starred in, wrote and co-directed the mockumentary "Extreme Walking." A talented music producer and MC, Labine is a part of two bands. He formed the hip-hop band Self-Dep with his brother Kyle, Geoff Gustafson and Ryan Robbins and Demons are Real is an electro/indie/pop band he created with his brother Cameron.

Labine was born in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, and as a child moved with his family to Vancouver, British Columbia. He began his acting career in local theater, quickly landing a number of small television roles. After appearing in lead roles on the series "Breaker High" and "That Was Then," he set his sights on the big screen. He subsequently starred opposite Nathan Lane in "Trixie," Cybill Shepherd in "Marine Life" and Tim Robbins in "AntiTrust."

He splits his time between Vancouver and Los Angeles. Labine remains close with his family, often enjoying snowboarding in British Columbia and vacationing at the family cottage in Ontario.
