How the Wolf Pack Was Cast

USA Today brings us the inside scoop to the criteria for securing a part as the wolf pack.
No. 1 on the list: Native American or First Nation ancestry, because their characters belong to the Quileute tribe, based in La Push, Wash., both in the book and in real life.

"They had to have papers that proved their heritage," says
director Chris Weitz, who was the one who insisted on hiring within the
community. "And they had to be in good physical shape."

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."

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

"They all have the actor's eyes," Weitz says.
Wolves with the actor's eyes? That to me sounds genius! Can't wait to see what it will look like =)
