Behind the Scenes

  • Tyson's corpse discovered by Sidney.

    He was described as "TYSON Fox: late-20's, African-American, all attitude" in the script. 
  • Being that he had a Shakesperian work history, Tyson could have been a method actor, which would explain his Randy Meeks-like persona on set. That, or it could have been his real personality.
  • Tyson Fox is a Scream 3 fan favorite along with Jennifer Jolie and Roman Bridger
  • One of the few characters to physically fight Ghostface.
  • Tyson was deliberately intended to be a primary suspect for Ghostface. This is evident since he is present at Sarah Darling's murder, missing at Jennifer's house destruction and also present during Sidney's attack on the Woodsboro film set.
