MTV is hoping that playing a werewolf is just as much of a role for a Tyler as it has been for a Taylor, as the cable channel has announced Tyler Posey as the star of their TV version of the classic Teen Wolf film franchise.
Smallville fans would remember Posey as Javier in the Season 6 episode "Subterranean."
This Teen Wolf is named Scott McCall (Edward Woodward's Equalizer son needs to sue!) - and he is portrayed as somewhat of a dork who gets super-powers, including the ability to attract the ladies, after a wolf attack.
There's a bad werewolf in town too, Tyler Hoechlin of 7th Heaven, who is described as a "vicious and predatory" werewolf.
Playing the female love interest will be Crystal Reed (Hard Times). Her character may have a secret as well which could put her into conflict with the series lead.
Rounding out the cast will be Dylan O'Brien as Scott's best friend. Casting breakdowns at least say that, like the original movie, the best friend will be named Stiles.
A pilot presentation will be shot, which is written by Criminal Minds creator Jeff Davis. Davis, Marty Adelstein and Rene Echevarria are executive producers.
