In Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters, Percy describes Tyson like this: “He was six-foot-three and built like the Abominable Snowman, but he cried a lot and was scared of just about everything, including his own reflection. His face was kind of misshapen and brutal-looking. I couldn’t tell you what color his eyes were, because I could never make myself look higher than his crooked teeth. His voice was deep, but he talked funny, like a much younger kid… He wore tattered jeans, grimy size-twenty sneakers, and a plaid flannel shirt with holes in it.”
Douglas Smith is 6’3”, the perfect height to play Tyson. He’s not as built like I always imagined Tyson to be. In some of the set pictures, Douglas is wearing a flannel shirt, jeans, and sneakers. They’re not exactly tattered clothes though. All and all, I believe he’ll play Tyson well.
