Kate Del Castillo and Jackson Rathbone were here to talk about racing at Toyota Grand Prix and recreated their own mini race with anchors Mark Kriski and Frank Buckley with remote controlled cars.
Don’t think we’ve added these yet… so, here are some digital scans of Jackson’s issue of Ouch Magazine. You can check out the outtakes here.

In the movies and on TV, it seems actors always perform stunts and impossible feats with expertise and ease. But at the Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond this weekend, the actors were mere mortals.
The 12 celebrities slated to participate in the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race on April 20, part of the 39th annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, took to the track for four days of race training.
Comedian Wanda Sykes admitted she is “just trying to stay alive.” Others who have participated in the charity competition took the intense training in stride, such as Jesse Metcalfe, star of the television show Dallas, who said he felt “a need for speed.”
Stars including Sykes and Metcalfe, and Olympic Gold Medalist and Long Beach native Jessica Hardy, made the early-morning trek out to the western-most valley of the Mojave Desert to get a crash course in basic racing from Fast Lane Racing School pro instructor Danny McKeever.
Other celebrities participating include Mexico’s most acclaimed actress Kate del Castillo (“La Reina del Sur,” “Under the Same Moon,” “Trade” and “Weeds”); Brett Davern (“Awkward”), Jenna Elfman (“Dharma & Greg” and “1600 Penn”); Jackson Rathbone (“Twilight”); Michelle Rodriguez (“Avatar”); Jeremy Sisto (“Six Feet Under”); Michael Trucco (“Castle” and “How I Met Your Mother”); Dakota Meyer, a former U.S. Marine and Medal of Honor recipient for his 2009 actions in Afghanistan; Grammy award-nominated and best-selling Mexican pop singer Cristian Castro; Mark Steins, Emmy award-winning journalist and host of Hallmark Channel’s “Home & Family;” and Rutledge Wood, auto racing analyst on Fox Sports/SPEED.
Some more outtakes from Jackson’s photoshoot with Michael Freeby have been released recently and they even include a few shots with Jerad!

Several more photos of Jackson at the 3rd Annual Streamy Awards and Make A Film Foundation’s “Kidz 4 Kidz” Comedy 4 A Cau$e Benefit Show have been added to the gallery. Enjoy!
Jackson will be participating in this year’s Toyota Grand Pix charity race. The race will take place on April 20. Details below!
The 39th Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach may be more than a month away, but some famous folks got the green flag Thursday when they were announced as drivers for “Revved Up to Race,” the 37th annual pro/celebrity race that serves as a warm-up for the main event.
Jackson Rathbone of “Twilight,” Jesse Metcalfe of “Dallas” and “Desperate Housewives,” and funny lady Wanda Sykes are only a few of the those who’ll be getting behind the wheel of identical new 210-horsepower Scion FR-S race vehicles and burning through 10 laps in downtown Long Beach on April 20.
The event not only benefits Racing for Kids, a national fundraising program supporting U.S. children’s hospitals, but, according to Toyota national motorsports manager Les Unger, allows the celebs to “feel the rush behind the wheel on the famous Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach track.”
Once again, thanks to Andreas, I’ve replaced a few of the White Collar stills with HQ versions plus added a new one as well.
Last night, Jackson attended Make A Film Foundation’s “Kidz 4 Kidz” Comedy 4 A Cau$e Benefit Show and posed for photos on the red carpet alongside his Magic Bracelet co-star, Kaitlin Doubleday. Enjoy the photos!
