The casting of Alex Meraz as a werewolf in The Twilight Saga: New Moon
was an inspired choice, judging by this video, in which the actor shows off some impressive shirt-ripping abilities.
Meraz, 24, plays one of four shape-shifting brothers
in a wolf pack in the Twilight
sequel, due out Nov. 20. The Mesa, Ariz., native plays Paul, the most volatile wolf in the series' town of Forks, Wash., and boasts a Purepecha heritage.
