Tyler James Hilton, Singer, Actor, Hottie

Tyler James Hilton (born November 22, 1983) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. Hilton began his professional career in music in 2000.


Rolling Stone Magazine compared him to his contemporary, Howie Day, while others have compared Hilton to Elton John, both vocally and instrumentally. Since the release of his debut album, Hilton has ventured into acting, guest starring on The WB's One Tree Hill as the talented but somewhat arrogant Chris Keller, and playing the role of Elvis Presley in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line. He also appeared in Taylor Swift's music video "Teardrops on My Guitar".


After his stint as Chris Keller on One Tree Hill, Hilton went on to appear in the Academy Award-winning film Walk the Line as a young version of Elvis Presley. For the part, Hilton was given the opportunity to cover two Elvis songs for the film, "Milk Cow Blues" and "That's All Right." Both songs are featured on the film's award-winning soundtrack.


Hilton appeared in the 2008 film Charlie Bartlett and played the love interest in country music artist Taylor Swift's music video for her song "Teardrops on My Guitar".


When Mark Schwahn, the creator of One Tree Hill, asked Hilton to reprise his role as Chris Keller in 2008, Tyler replied, "Sorry, but Chris Keller needs to focus on his music." One Tree Hill co-star Bevin Prince is also a fan of Tyler's and enjoys his music immensely. On April 26, 2010 Tyler said that he'd be willing to return to One Tree Hill.
