So Who's Starring in MTV's 'Teen Wolf'?

Not long ago we told you how MTV was reviving the 1980s cult favorite Teen Wolf and turning it into a hip new TV show for the Twi-hard generation. The original 1985 film starred Michael J. Fox as a high school student who one day learns that he's part wolf. After being initially freaked out by this, he eventually uses his new way-too-hairy appearance to become the school's coolest cat (or, um, wolf).

 
The MTV series, however, will take things in a different (and more dramatic) direction. This version of Teen Wolf will star Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed and Dylan O'Brien, and it will revolve around a teen (Posey) who takes on new powers after he's bitten during a wolf attack. Described as a "dramatic thriller with a buddy-comedy at the center and a romantic plot line", the show doesn't look to have much in common with the movie, save for the wolf get-up and the male best friend who takes an interest in his pal's new transformation.
 
No word on whether the best friend will be named Stiles, and/or if our two buddies will go van surfing at any point during the show (God I hope so!), but it does seem like there will be plenty of juicy supernatural teen angst here to attract a fairly large tween and teen audience.
 
What do you think? Will you watch the new Teen Wolf?
