Vampires usually get all the attention, but that's not to say their natural enemies -- werewolves, Lycans, shapeshifters, whatever you call them -- don't sizzle onscreen too, at least in their human forms. Taylor Lautner and the rest of the wolf pack became the latest to remind us that werewolves are sexy beasts indeed. Who of them is your favorite?
Michael Landon in I Was a Teenage Werewolf
A full grown man turning into a werewolf was nothing new in 1957, but a teenager undergoing the transformation—that was avant-garde for its time! Evidently, young, hot and hairy became a new formula for huge box office returns.
Michael J. Fox in Teen Wolf (1985)
Fox was the Zac Efron of his time, charming his way on the basketball court and into teens' hearts, even as a mangy werewolf.
Tyler Posey in Teen Wolf
MTV's take on a teen who's inherited a werewolf curse had fans howling for more Tyler Posey! He's not nearly as furry as Michael J. Fox's teen wolf, and instead of basketball, he plays lacrosse. Regardless, Posey's tousled hair, yellow-eyed stare and shirtless bod hit the stake dead center for a hot werewolf trying to navigate today's high school scene.
Hugh Jackman in Wolverine
We're obviously using the term "wolf" loosely, so Hugh's vein-popping, bearded, claw-slashing interpretation of a mutant wolf applies.
Seth Green in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Not digging the buff, vein-popping Lycanthrope? Seth represents more of the geeky, gothic, brooding type in the Buffy TV series, the vampire pop-culture phenomenon from the genius of Joss Whedon.
David Naughton in An American Werewolf in London
Underneath the grotesque werewolf prosthetics is David Naughton's pretty face (resembling a young Robert Downey Jr., no?). This 1981 horror-comedy spawned a cult following, and it was one of the first to make the werewolf transformation truly a cinematic spectacle.
Jack Nicholson in Wolf
We know what you're thinking: Jack Nicholson? Sexy?! He sure was, minus the canine incisors, jaundiced eyes and crazed mane.
Scott Speedman inUnderworld
Before you say Scott shouldn't be on the list because he's a hybrid of Lycan and Vampire, think back to why Michael Sheen went searching for him in the first place. Scott has Lycan in his bloodline (as well as smoldering good looks), and technically became a werewolf a few hours before Kate Beckinsale turned him into a hybrid.
Lon Chaney Jr. in The Wolf Man
This classic 1941 Universal horror movie featured Chaney Jr. opposite Bela Lugosi, in what would become the most influential movie on Hollywood's many depictions of the character. Chaney would reprise the Wolf Man four more times and it was the only Universal monster to be played by the same actor in all of his 1940s movies.
Will Kemp in Van Helsing
He didn't get much screen time opposite Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale, but when he did he sure kept things steamy... until he met his furry fate, that is.
Alex Meraz in The Twilight Saga
The Wolf Pack's guys are so hot (their body temp runs higher than normal at 108 degrees), they're all too sexy for their shirts. We're sure Twi-hards don't have a problem with that.
Benicio Del Toro in The Wolfman
In the maligned 2010 Wolf Man remake, the Academy Award-winning actor took on the classic role and unleashed his primal side. The movie was considered a flop, but it did manage to score an Oscar for makeup!
Jason Bateman in Teen Wolf Too
The sequel to Teen Wolf starred a young Bateman as an uncoordinated athlete who transforms into jock status when the wolf in him emerges.
Taylor Lautner in The Twilight Saga
This guy's character can phase into a werewolf at the same break-neck speed that he whips off his tight T-shirt. Beefcake served. You're welcome, Team Jacob.
