In a recent interview with The Wrap producer Lance Sloane talks about the second season of Aim High. I’ve included the questions/answers that mention Jackson below.
Did you always want to cast Jackson?
Before we got Jackson, my son was really good friends with David Henrie, the kid from “Wizards of Waverly Place.” It was a huge hit when we were in production and he begged to be a part of [“Aim High”], but he was under an existing contract. McG was always a fan of Jackson Rathbone, and he jumped in while doing “Twilight.”
How would you describe Jackson’s character?
The job he’s taken is not what he signed up for. He’s super good at it but wants to be a regular kid. He wants to date the hot girl.
How long do you think you can keep it going? Won’t Jackson get too old to play a kid in high school?
He’s getting to that point now for sure. We really had conversations about the second season – is he in high school anymore or is he off in Jakarta on a mission? You can go anywhere with it. The next season, god willing, maybe we’ll highlight another character or Jackson hands it off.
Who determines if there is another season?
We’ve talked to Crackle about a third. That could be cool. A small group of us determine a third one, but ultimately it’s the fans. We have to give them what they want.
