Jackson Rathbone (Twilight) and his band 100 Monkeys just wrapped up their live chat and performance on Cambio, but the event started off with some exciting news… Jackson's new web series ';Aim High' starring Aimee Teegarden (PROM) will premiere exclusively on Cambio and Facebook October 11, 2011!
"Hope you're as excited to see it as we are to show it to you on October 11," he said. Jackson will reprise his role as vampire Jasper Cullen in the first installment of ';The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' on November 18th and is currently touring with his band.
"It's exciting to be a part of the process of making ';Aim High' and getting the chance to produce alongside McG and the chance to star in an action series," Jackson said. "It was a blast and an honor to be a part of. I can't wait to put it out to the world, and there's even more exiting stuff to talk about. So exciting, I can't even talk about it yet."
Perhaps he's referring to an official video for the 100 Monkeys' song, conveniently titled, ';Aim High.' He told Cambio that a music video is definitely being discussed. Watch the band perform the song live on here.
The series, produced by McG (the director of ';Terminator Salvation'), follows ordinary high school student, Nick Green, who moonlights as a trained government counter-terrorism assassin when he's not hitting the books. Aimee plays, Amanda Miles, an indie rock chick who is dating the popular captain of the swim team.
