Michael J. Fox may be the original Teen Wolf, but now, its MTV’s turn to
mess up remake an old classic. With a screenplay by Jeff Davis who is writer for Criminal Minds, the story is based on Scott McCall, a young lacrosse player who is somewhat of an outsider. When he decides to go wondering in the woods one night in search of a dead body, he gets bitten by a werewolf. Even though he escapes with only one bite on his side, he begins to notice that things about him are changing.
MTV announced that they would be adapting Teen Wolf for TV way back in the summer of 2009 with a greater emphasis on romance, horror and werewolf mythology. Filming and production didn’t begin until October of 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia. Donovan gave us a first look at Teen Wolf when the first trailer and promo pics became available just to tease us all. This isn’t the first Teen Wolf TV adaptation. CBS aired an animated series between 1985-86. The cast stars some pretty good lookin’ boys so I thought I’d show them to you and you could decide who your favorite Teen Wolf hottie is.
This 19 year old actor from Santa Monica, CA is ready to take on the biggest role of his life. I first remember seeing Tyler in Brothers & Sisters on ABC where he played Sarah’s stepson, a kid from her previous marriage to Joe. Playing the lead in Teen Wolf made Yahoo! cite him as the next Taylor Lautner. Those are some pretty big shoes to fill. Tyler is of Mexican and Native American origin and also is the front man for his band Lost In Kostko.
Colton is 22 years old but started his career at the ripe age of 15 when he started modeling for Abercrombie & Fitch in New York. Once he moved to L.A. he started to immediately book guest spots on CSI and Pushing Daises. He then booked a full-time role on ABC’s The Gates. After that show got cancelled, Colton decided to move on to the Teen Wolf project. Colton is also famous for pictures that surface of him kissing another boy.
I know absolutely nothing about this guy. He seems to be a mystery on the internet. This will be Keahu’s first TV role playing Danny, Jackson’s best friend and openly gay. Get it MTV with your openly gay character. Are we going to see some sexy man-on-man action from this Keahu? Let’s hope. Finding a shirtless pic of the new actor proved difficult as well until I stumbled upon this beauty. Looking at his official Twitter, he does sound like a workout and fitness junkie. It shows.
This 23-year-old got his break out role starring alongside Tom Hanks in Road To Perdition. He’s also very well known for his role in family drama, 7th Heaven. You may recognize this hottie from his recent appearance in the comedy Hall Pass where he got a little shirtless for your viewing pleasure. Tyler also is a baseball player. He played infield for Arizona State. When played for UC Irvine, he grounded out to the pitcher in the final at-bat, causing his team to lose the title. Awkward.
Dylan is also 19 like his co-star Tyler Posey and is from New York. Teen Wolf will by his first television role playing Stiles, one of Jackson’s best friends who is one of the few that knows the truth about being bitten by a werewolf and the guy who convinces him to go search for the dead body in the first place. Dylan currently has two films on the go. One called High Road and one called The First Time. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of Dylan in the future.
