Jackson Rathbone in Nylon
Jackson Rathbone is featured in Nylon Magazine, sporting a new hairdo.
Rathbone started acting in high school when he attended Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, and moved from set and lighting design to a spot in front of the curtain. "When I started being onstage, I fell in love with it," he says. Although he is now best known as Jasper Hale in Twilight, and is currently filming M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender, what Rathbone seems most excited to talk about right now is his band, 100 Monkeys.
His bandmates are old friends and actors as well, and he shares a house in Hollywood with two of them. "We call it the Monkey House," he jokes. "We all play all the instruments," he adds. "We call it the Monkey Switcharoo."
When asked about working with his Twilight castmates, he praises their talent, then adds, "Kristen and Rob are both very musically inclined, so we would have jam sessions. It was like the Cullen Family Band."
