Jackson and the Music Industry

Jackson Rathbone, our pained Jasper, is expected to take the Music Industry by storm. Jackson is now part of MTV’s Pop Male Rookies of 2009 list. All on this list are guys expected to make a big splash in ’09 with their music. And with Jackson’s awesome band, 100 Monkeys, he’s sure to have an impact this year.

Jackson Rathbone:
He has ‘New Moon’ all lined up for later this year, so he can milk this ‘Twilight’ franchise for all it’s worth. But Jackson’s got a lot more going for him than just vampires: He also has a band, 100 Monkeys, that’s planning to release two albums this year. And maybe if things work out, he can get his co-star Robert Pattinson in on the act. ‘We’ve jammed with Rob quite a bit at the house,’ he told MTV News. ‘We have some recordings that we’re never going to release, but yeah, he plays. Maybe he’ll make a guest appearance someday, but the kid has a really busy schedule these days.’ On top of his career as a rock star, he’s also hard at work on several films, including ‘S. Darko,’ ‘Dread,’ ‘Hurt’ and ‘The Last Airbender.’ ‘It’s just an action-packed, epic film,’ he said of M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Airbender.’ ‘I’m starting to do martial-arts training, which is going to be so much fun. It’s such a mythical world. We get to go to Asia, go film abroad.’ “
