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.
Since it’s officially the 14th here on the west coast, I’d like to wish Jackson a happy 29th birthday! Have a good one today! And don’t forget to send your birthday messages to him on twitter/facebook!

“Is this the end of zombie Shakespeare?” It would appear not, as John Murlowski’s comedy Zombie Hamlet makes its way onto DVD on December 31st. Written by John McKinney and with original music by Jackson Rathbone, whom you might remember from Twilight or, if you’re too ashamed to admit you knew that, the indie horror flick Dread.
The film stars Travis Wester, Jason Mewes, Shelley Long, Vanessa Lee Evigan, John Amos, and June Lockhart.
Level 33 Entertainment is behind the exclusive DVD release, which will be made available on Amazon.com at an SRP of $14.99, and for rent at rental outlets
Jackson Rathbone really wants a playmate for 16-month-old son Monroe. So, it sounds like the pressure is on his new bride Sheila Hafsadi — or perhaps it’s on his Twilight costar Nikki Reed!
“Nikki will be an amazing mom,” Rathbone, 28, told PEOPLE Monday at the opening of Planet Hollywood’s Twilight Forever Fan Experience exhibit in New York.
“We’re trying to infect her with baby fever so we can have an amazing kid for Monroe to play with. We want him to have a little buddy.”
Hafsadi could provide that too, of course — and in fact, Rathbone wouldn’t mind adding two little buddies.
“I grew up with all girls, so if I had a little daughter that would be amazing,” he says. “But either way, I don’t mind. We kind of hope that we’ll have twins, a little boy and girl. That way we have them both done and that’s it!”
Jackson Rathbone talks about life before and after “Twilight” and dishes about his co-stars.
Photos of Jackson at the Twilight Forever Fan Experience Exhibit Launch have been added to the gallery. Enjoy!
And some videos from the event as well.
