Jackson Rathbone is trading in his Vampire teeth for a backpack and a badge.
The 26-year-old stars in Warner Brothers' new web series Aim High, which will premiere on August 1 on Facebook. The series, from McG, follows high schooler, Nick Green, who moonlights as a U.S. spy when he's not hitting the books. The series also stars Aimee Teegarden.
Jackson told Entertainment Weekly about his character, "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."
And what was it like working with Aimee? "She's fantastic. 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."
