America’s favorite vampire, played by Robert Pattinson, returned to the big screen in “New Moon,” where his chiseled face and serious manner made Twi-hard fans wild.

Jacob Black

Werewolf Jacob, played by Taylor Lautner, caused fans to switch from Team Edward to Team Jacob after packing on 30 pounds of muscle — and staying shirtless throughout “New Moon.”

Lovable yet dim Jason Stackhouse, played by Ryan Kwanten, charms the ladies with his boyish features and Southern accent on “True Blood.”
