Trailer for Jackson Rathbone's new series "Aim High"

Jackson Rathbone may be best known as Jasper in the Twilight films, but he’s taking on a new role in Aim High, Warner Bros.’s new web series produced by McG (Chuck) that premieres Aug. 1 on Facebook.
Rathbone will play a high schooler, Nick Green, who moonlights as a U.S. spy when he’s not hitting the books. EW has the exclusive trailer for the series below, as well as some more details from Rathbone about the series.

Rathbone says his character Nick is all about leading a double life. “He’s kind of inundated with class work, and at night,” Rathbone explains, “he goes out and takes out terrorists. Nick is like a mix between Ferris Bueller and Jason Bourne. I played the awkwardness in school, and confidence out on missions. It was a blast for me.”

But why, pray tell, would the U.S. government want to use a high school student as a spy? Jackson explains: “He’s young, he’s fit, and he’s still kind of at that age where the idea of morality is still a little bit bendable. At the end of the day, he’s malleable. He can be taught, he can learn quickly, and it’s also the idea of the teenager — especially the modern teenager — being able to focus on so many different things at once. Nowadays you have the iPads and the iPhones and computers and all this kind of stuff, and kids are so amazing at multi-tasking. I think that’s what makes an amazing field operative, someone that can do one thing while doing 20 other things at the same time. If you can’t focus on whatever is right in front of you and everything else going on around you, you probably would be a terrible operative.”

Of course, Nick will encounter tough situations in both arenas of his life — in high school, and while out as an operative. “There is a general, overarching nemesis in this first season, but at the same time, it’s about following this kid as he tries to navigate faking a normal life in high school and hiding his operative element to the rest of the school,” Jackson says.

And because it’s a high school drama, too, there’s a juicy romantic element, natch. Friday Night Lights alum Aimee Teegarden plays a love interest for Rathbone’s Nick. “She’s fantastic,” Rathbone says of Teegarden. “She’s one of those girls who’s just so sweet to be around. Whenever she’s on set, everybody’s in a good mood. She’s not just pretty to look at but also puts a smile in your heart. She’s just an absolute sweetheart. It wasn’t too difficult to play in love with Aimee.” But the real question is: Will there be sparks? Apparently. “It’s going to be like smoking,” Rathbone says, with a laugh, “like Humphrey Bogart on screen.”

Kellan Lutz Reveals ‘Breaking Dawn’ Wedding Scene Was ‘Miserable’ For Kristen Stewart!

From HollywoodLife:

We knew the wedding scene was shot in cold rainy weather but we had no clue just how awful the conditions were — especially for Kristen, Ashley and Nikki!

Kristen Stewart‘s wedding day wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows it seems. spoke with Twilight star Kellan Lutz at the Solstice Sunglass Boutique Summer Soiree on June 21 in NYC and he revealed that there was more than just a little bit of mud and rain on the highly anticipated day!

We’ve always heard that rain on your wedding day is good luck, but it’s definitely not fun!
“Very cold. Very wet,” Kellan tells us of the wedding day. “Very miserable for the females who didn’t have heaters by them. But it was beautiful. It was beautiful; the set designer did an amazing job. The fans will really enjoy seeing it.”

Kellan’s co-star Peter Facinelli echoed Kellan’s comments when he spoke to MTV about the shoot in Squamish, BC Canada:
“With this wedding, it rained the whole time we shot the two scenes. But you’ll never see it on film, they block out the rain. They put tarps up and you’ll never see it. But for us, it was very wet and muddy and cold.”

But even though the Twilight saga has almost come to an end, Kellan says it’s bittersweet.

“No, I’m not really sad. This last movie was 7 months of pretty tough work,” Kellan says. “And we are all very blessed to be a part of it, but I don’t think it’s really going to sink in that it’s over till the last premiere, then we’ll still have a couple years for it to really sink in.”

We have to say that Kellan is one of the most down-to-earth actors in Hollywood and we are so happy we got a chance to meet him!
