Remember all my complaining about how the hair and make-up people on the "Eclipse" set must have hated Jackson Rathbone because he always looked like an unattractive woman in the movie stills? Well, it didn't really bother me that much during the movie.
Oh sure, he still looked pretty horrible, but Jackson Rathbone is such a charismatic actor that you forget he looks like he is wearing a straw wig on his head and believe that he really is a skilled fighting machine who became a vampire during the Civil War. Yep, he is that good.
I don't know how he does it, but once he starts talking with that faint Southern accent and grins his dimple-inducing smile, you forget about his ugly clothes and hair and just see Jasper. You've seen the pictures, so you know the man must have some serious acting chops to pull off a distraction of that magnitude.
My hat's off to you, Jackson Rathbone, for proving that looks truly don't matter.
