In the pantheon of great basketball movies, 'Teen Wolf' is often overlooked. And that's a shame. After all, it has every bit as much dramatic tension as 'Hoosiers' or 'White Men Can't Jump' -- but it also has a werewolf.

Do 'Hoosiers' and 'White Men Can't Jump' have werewolves? No, they do not. 'Teen Wolf' > 'Hoosiers' and 'White Men Can't Jump.'

Michael J. Fox, of course, has deservedly received nostalgic praise for having brought his boyish charms to the winsome 1985 film about a hirsute young man dreaming of basketball glory. But the movie features another performer whose efforts have previously gone unheralded -- and no, we're not talking about the guy who played Chubby.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of 'Teen Wolf,' let's finally meet the Wolf himself: Jeff Glosser.

These days, Glosser is an assistant principal at an Arizona prep school, but back in 1985, as a freshman at Loyola Marymount University, he was offered the opportunity to be a part of what, a quarter century later, still holds up as one of the finer basketball films ever made, werewolves or no. Moviefone tracked Glosser down in the middle of a workday and persuaded him to tell us about the lone credit on his IMDB page.
