He certainly isn't the same Benecio we're used to here... Entertainment Weekly has gotten a hold of the first photos of Benecio del Toro as The Wolf Man. Check out the shots below.

Like the 1941 original that starred Lon Chaney Jr., the new film will be set in Victorian England. Del Toro will play a man who returns from America to his ancestral homeland, gets bitten by a werewolf and begins a hairy moonlight existence.

The Wolf Man is currently filming and is eyeing a February 13, 2009 release date.
