Jackson Rathbone Q&A at NewCon Nashville

We don't ever get enough Jackson Rathbone. It's not often that we get an interview or appearance, but he is always so charming and funny. Here is a video from New Con in Nashville. He talks about his character in The Last Airbender, stunts, working with Rob and his almost casting as Edward.

I've seen this video more times than I can count by now, and thats partially Jackson's fault and partially M. Night Shyamalan's fault. You're right though, we never get enough Jackson.

I'm personally glad he wasn't cast as Edward, I love him to death for Jasper. Although, I will go out on a limb and say I think he's got a better personality for handling the crazy that has become Rob's life simply for getting the role. That said, I'm kinda selfish and glad I dont have to share him with everyone and their brother and their dog too. I'm good with Jackson's semi-famous status.

I love Avatar: The Last Airbender with a ridiculous passion, and I can only thank Jackson for that honestly. Being a fan of his, the only reason I looked into the show was because I wanted to know more about his character in the movie. And I ended up completely falling in love with Sokka and the whole show, and that had nothing to do with Jackson. Now I just consider it a quirk of fate that he was cast as Sokka, who is quite possibly the most perfect role EVER for him. Although it does still make me chuckle that he was actually trying to land the part of Zuko, who is my fave male character (Sokka being #2).

The best weekend ever: 6/30/10 Eclipse and 7/2/10 The Last Airbender. Its going to be epic.
