Jackson Rathbone recently spoke with EW about his new interactive new web series called Aim High, the final day on the Breaking Dawn set, his music and more!
On the last day of filming ‘Breaking Dawn.’
“The last day of filming was bittersweet, it was surreal. It was about three in the morning. It was wet, it was very, very cold. When they called wrap, the core Cullen clan was there and we just all kind of looked at each other and were like, ‘Man!’”
On playing music together on the set:
“Rob [Pattinson] and I have jammed quite a bit (on the set),” he says. “Miss [Kristen] Stewart is quite a guitarist and singer herself. Nikki Reed is actually a fantastic songwriter and she is an amazing singer, too, but it’s hard to get her to sing. I think I’m one of the few people that’s ever gotten her to sing. I badgered her enough. On this last movie I was teaching Ashley [Greene] a little bit about the ukulele. Kellan [Lutz] is actually taking up the guitar…We always had a good ol’ time [playing music together on the set.]”
Actor/Musician – Los Angeles See Him: As “Jasper Hale” in Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 (November 18) Hear Him: As lead singer and musician in his band, 100 Monkeys
The definition of a man who wears many hats, actor, producer, writer, composer and singer Jackson Rathbone is making an impression on the entertainment industry from many angles. Best known for his role as “Jasper Hale” in the Twilight series, he will reprise this role on the big screen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, which premieres November 18. A talented musician and singer, Jackson also plays multiple instruments in his band, 100 Monkeys, and never performs without his staple red bandana.
Jackson Rathbone, Jasper in the Twilightfilms, helped raise money for the Fender Music Foundation and a grant for music programs here in Las Vegas over the weekend at the zip-line attraction Flightlinez downtown. Jackson zip-lined through Fremont Street Experience for charity and then joined his band 100 Monkeys for a free performance for fans. These guys are really the best, as you can tell from my recent interview with them before a performance at the Cosmopolitan. The event raised $15,000.
Jackson Rathbone took time out to say ‘hi’ to one of his fans, Kim, as he was eating breakfast at Bobs restaurant in Toluca Lake, CA.Well, this was very sweet of him to do while dining out! Such a smiley sweetheart.
A new Twilight character doll debuted at this year’s Toy Fair 2011: Jasper Hale. The action figure will soon be available for purchase, and Tonner Doll Co. representative Robert Tonner gave MTV a sneak peek!
Glamour UK Magazine had compiled a list of the Top 31 Sexiest Vampires of all time to keep with the Halloween theme for October! Below are the vamps from the Twilight Saga who made the list – and their ranking. Read on to see who made #1!
31. Twilight’s Alec
Played by: Cameron Bright
As evil Volturi vampire Alec – the little scamp – Cameron has the ability to block the senses of others, but it’s his steely glare and pouty lips that made the impression on us.
Played by: Rachelle Lefevre and Bryce Dallas Howard
Oh-so ‘naughty but nice’ – just ask your man. Whether played by Rachelle or Bryce, redheaded Victoria made Twilight watchable for fellas everywhere.
27. Twilight’s Demetri Played by: Charlie Bewley
Newcomer Charlie made his film debut in New Moon as the very scary Demetri – but we’re looking forward to seeing a lot more of him as the saga continues. Those eyes, that voice…
25. Twilight’s Alice Cullen
Played by Ashley Greene
Playing Edward’s elfin sister Alice made Ashley a fully-fledged Hollywood star and bagged her a Jonas brother! Jealous? Us?
24. Twilight’s Carlisle Cullen
Played by: Peter Facinelli
With his piercing eyes, striking blonde locks and gentlemanly brogue, it’s no wonder the Cullen patriarch has made it into our Top 30. Team Carlisle tees, anyone?
22. Twilight’s Jasper Hale
Played by: Jackson Rathbone
The minute we heard Jasper utter “my apologies, mam” to his love, Alice in that irresistible Southern drawl, we were smitten. We GLAMOUR.COM girls have always been a sucker for an old-fashioned gent. They are so rare nowadays…
19. Twilight’s Rosalie Hale
Played by: Nikki Reed
She’s often described in Stephenie Meyer’s books as the most beautiful woman on the planet – so taking on the role of Rosalie is a pretty tall order. Of course, who better to portray the vamp vixen than exotic screen siren Nikki?
17. Twilight’s Caius
Played by: Jamie Campbell Bower
Evil Volturi vampire Caius gives Robert Pattinson a run for his money in the chiselled cheekbones stakes. The Brit boy’s dulcet tones and silken locks have even charmed Harry Potter’s flamed-haired female Weasley, Bonnie Wright.
10. Twilight Eclipse’s Riley Biers Played by: Xavier Samuel
When we saw Xavier’s penetrating stare and cheekbones in the opening sequence of Eclipse, we were almost, dare we say it, like “Edward who?”. Almost.
4. Twilight’s Emmett Cullen
Played by: Kellan Lutz
Edward’s beefy yet affectionate big bro Emmett caught our attention with his gentle mocking and impressive torso. And thanks to those Calvin Klein ads, we’ve got to see a lot more of Kellan. Can you say HUNK?
1. Twilight’s Edward Cullen
Played by: Robert Pattinson
Twilight’s resident Sex God, Robert Pattinson has brought new meaning to the term ‘pale and interesting’. Like all vampires, Edward has a taste for blood, but that’s all too easy to forget when you look at his ripped torso and intense eyes. A thing of beauty…
