An Intimate Portrait of the New Moon Brawny Boys

As if the official New Moon werewolf poster isn't enough for you, USA Today elaborates on the brawny boys:

The Twilight sequel is filming now, and between takes, the actors usually are working out with barbells, doing push-ups or chowing down on steak, Weitz says. "They went through wolf camp together, and they are in constant training. It paid off as a bonding thing for them and helped them to get to know one another. They drove each other to get more buff."

No amount of weightlifting, however, would allow them to act out the wolf portion of their performances; the beasts are about the size of horses and race around on all fours.

Instead, the transformations are computer-generated, although one part of each wolf might seem familiar.

"They all have the actor's eyes," Weitz says.


  1. Wow, the tranformation scenes will be interesting!!!

  2. I hate to be a cynic but I sure hope that the wolves look better than Edward's 'glitter'.

    That being said, I can't WAIT to see the wolf pack on the big screen!!!
