Werewolves are really, really hot right now. In fact, hot werewolves are even, well, hotter. So, it was inevitable that a TV version of the classic 80's flick, "Teen Wolf," which starred primo 80's star, Michael J. Fox, would be coming to a small screen in the near future. And, now the reboot has put a name to the token teen wolf's face.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the MTV series has found its star in Tyler Posey (pictured), who is best known for starring in the ABC Family series "Lincoln Heights" and for playing Jennifer Lopez's precocious little boy in the 2002 rom com "Maid in Manhattan." Other names added to the cast list include: Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed and Dylan O'Brien. "Criminal Minds" creator Jeff Davis will be writing the pilot — and we already know he is very capable of working with attractive guys! Matthew Gray Gubler anyone?
The show will focus around the dorky teen wolf, Scott McCall (Posey), as he maneuvers his way through high school after he gets a bunch of superpowers, including the ability to attract the ladies, after a wolf attack. No word on if Jacob Black will be making any appearances.
The show will be both a drama and a buddy-comedy, with Scottl's buddy being played by Dylan, who isn't initially buying into Scott's tale. Crystal is on board as the new girl who falls for Scott and the other Tyler (Hoechlin) will be the local bad werewolf.
