'Twilight Saga: New Moon': First look at the Wolf Pack!

Newmoon_wolfpack And suddenly, we're thinking about changing teams...USA Today has the first look at The Twilight Saga: New Moon's Wolf Pack. You're gonna wanna go ahead and click "Enlarge" on their photo of actors Alex Meraz (Paul), Chaske Spencer (Sam), Bronson Pelletier (Jared), and Kiowa Gordon (Embry) in costume -- because by in costume, we really mean shirtless. "It's not pleasant for the actors," director Chris Weitz acknowledged from the Vancouver, B.C. set. "But they have all been good-natured. They show up on location in drenching, cold rain, and I say, 'OK, off with the robes.'" Weitz told the paper that the actors went through "wolf camp" together, which helped them bond -- "They drove each other to get more buff" -- and that in between takes, they can be found lifting barbells, doing push-ups and eating red meat. I can see the DVD bonus feature now. And I like it. (He also said that their four-legged CGI alteregos will have the actors' eyes. If they can pull that effect off -- awesome.)

So how are we feeling about the Wolf Pack now? Seriously, I don't think I fully grasped how hot they were in the books. Stephenie Meyer really should have gone into more detail about how Paul's pants fall on his hips. If Taylor Lautner is lookin' anything like these guys, I will, for the first time, understand how some of you could be on Team Jacob. Should we do a recount? Vote in the poll after the jump.
