Jackson Rathbone Cast as Jasper

We have from a reliable source that Jackson Rathbone has been cast as Jasper.  If you all remember Stephenie had originally had him as one of her Edward picks.  Jackson’s IMDb can be found here.  There is also a Jackson Rathbone fansite.

On another note MTV has posted an article about new cast members Nikki Reed, Cam Gigandet, Michael Welch, and Rachelle Leferve.  There is also this article on MTV.

    I think this guy as Jasper…. if they dye his hair blonde, lol. But seriously – another good cast!

    Plus, this probably means the other guy who we don’t know which character he’s playing is Emmett! And that’s AMAZING!

    *grinning like an idiot* I can’t wait till December 12th!!!

  2. Thank you… Twilighters.org had like 6 hours ago, so you guys can actually trust other websites too.

  3. The MTV article says that Nicki’s character is involved in a complicated love story between Emmett and Edward….huh????????????????????????

    I read that and groaned. I hope they’re refering to the fact that Rose was meant for Edward, not… something else…
    That article made me shudder. I sincerly hope that they got some facts wrong, or whoever I see the movie with is going to have a very unpleasant time…

    I like all of the actors though. Pretty much anyway, and if I’m not in love, I’m willing to give them a chance. I hope they do a good job!!

    Sweet:)
    a little fixing up to do
    but he will do:)

    i love lexicon!!!!!!!! I LOVE LEXICONNNNNNNNN
    I LOVE THIS SITE
    I LOVE STEPHENIE MEYER
    I LOVE TWILIGHT
    I LOVE EDWARD
    I LOVE JACOB
    I LOVE BOOKS
    I LOVE EVERYTHING TO DO w/ TWILIGHT AND TWILIGHT STUFF
    AHHHHHHHHHH I”M ADDICTED TO TWILIGHT

  19. I knew this before it came out. My small group leader at church (who loves Twilight as well) works with Jackson’s uncle and he told her a month or so ago. When she told me I was a bit skeptical. But she was right!

    YAY! I love him as Jasper!

  20. Moonpetal Lily says:

    Thanks for finally confirming this. My friend is going to freak…(jasper fangirl)

  21. Fire and Ice says:

    YAY! 😀

  22. i think he looks too young but hes still good looking XD. and i love the irony that MTV is reporting all these things on the movie

  23. Bomi Kim EDWARD IS MY MAN says:

    i’m such a spazz …
    moment to apologize for my insane ramblings

  24. hisbrandofheroin says:

    I think he could make a great Jasper with a little tweaking!
    Possibly one of the best casts thus far! Loving the updates, only one or two qualms with the choices, which I hope will be smoothed out!

  25. I think he will make a good Jasper 🙂

  26. YAY! I like this pick! Him with straight hair i think will do just fine, image wise. 🙂

  27. Okay…

    I’m going to go vomit and cry, but I’ll be back :'(

    Seriously. The casting director for this movie must have been a crack baby – sorry, is that rude?

    TRANSLATION FROM ANGRY COMMENT: I am displeased with this choice for Jasper. I am displeased with Carlisle, Eric, and Rosalie. Sorry if you guys like them. I’ll shut up and let you have your opinions and keep mine to myself, because I apparently have a differing one from the many of you who seem excited with these choices.

  28. Betting on Alice, I had a more serious response….I said some things you don’t want to hear…LOL!! I’m hoping you’re right. There CANNOT be but one love story involving Edward, and that’s with Bella. I hate to sound negative because the movie is just being filmed, but everytime I read another article that seems to wander so far away from the book I get a really sick feeling……:(

  29. right on.

  30. kristine cullen says:

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
    I WANNA KNOW WHO JACOB IS!!!
    I LUV THE ALICE AND MIKE CHOICE…
    BELLA IS OKAY TOO
    BUT I HOPE JACOB IS REALLY REALLLY REAAAAALLY GOOD!!

  31. spencer from the hills is how i pictured him…

  32. so that makes 3 people who have played in the OC cast in the twilight movie. the guy who is playing james, the girls whos playing rosalie and now this guy.

  33. I think the casting directors…
    deserve a good pat on the back!!
    …someone pass that to them…
    if you can

  34. wow was looking through his pictures and saw that he has the greenest eyes I have ever seen on a person o____o
    http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3791756544/nm1717152
    unless they’re contacts (which I’m hoping it’s not)
    but they look amaaaazing xD

  35. Bomi Kim EDWARD IS MY MAN says:

    i hate all the character decisions about twilight except for victoria, james (who i imagined w/ black hair.. but oh well), mike, and jessica…. who agrees

  36. @ashley

    I know right… I was wondering what was up with that.

  37. The love story with Edward might just be that Rosalie was originally meant for him and he couldn’t stand her. We all know how Rosalie takes rejection.

  38. ONE OF THE ARTICLES SAID THAT THEY MIGHT RELEASE THE FIRST PIC FROM THE FILM SOON!!! DHOEJROJA! OMG!!!!

  39. Oh, he’s cute!!

    I don’t understand why people get upset over hair color… isn’t that the easiest thing to change?? Don’t worry so much!!!

    I think the casting has been great so far!! Yes, even Rosalie…

  40. bellawannabe620 says:

    YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY…one of SMs picks got in the movie, even if it wasnt exactly the character she wanted…still he should be able to do an excellent Jasper

    i guess this means Kellan Lutz will probably play Emmett….or maybe even Laurent…

  41. kristine cullen says:

    i guess he could change his hair….. the other actors are okay but i will get so mad if jacob is bad.

  42. I dont get it, why does Jasper have to be blond?? I think he is perfect!!!! I think that so far, everyone is just fine (exept maybe edward. I pictured him differently… I dont know, maybe more of a square jaw…) but other than that, good job!

  43. I’m really excited for the movie and although some of the actors/actresses chosen were not my first choices, I’m willing to give them a shot!

  44. NO! NOT MY JASPER! I like the actor, he just isn’t Jasper.

  45. Oh and by the way (I forgot to add this in my last post), awesome new header image thing 😉

  46. Teresa Cullen says:

    ohhhhhh i think he’s perfect! PERFECT!!

    I’M SO EXCITED! *squeal*

  47. Okay, my bad, maybe it wasn’t verified all that fast, but to me it seemed like it because one minute I read it and the next this came up.

    I think he’ll make a great Jasper. My only concern is he was on Disney 411 a year or two ago and his voice wasn’t deep like Jasper’s is supposed to be. But I’m certain he’s changed over the past year or too, and I’m just really excited for the movie to come out!

  48. …he is okay. Waiting for the movie!!

  49. twilightfreak says:

    um….lets remember they have invented something called hair-dye

  50. @Akira

    Haha I saw a clip of him on Disney 365! So funny!
