Jackson struck a pose right outside his dressing room with Paradigm agent, Ryan Bartlett.

He may play the overly emotional Jasper Hale on screen in The Twilight Saga, but in real life, Jackson Rathbone was nothing but smiles at the 2010 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards held at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion in Westwood, CA, on March 27.

Jackson hit the orange carpet at the KCAs with famed writer/director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs) and actress Nicola Peltz who he worked with in this upcoming Paramount film, The Last Airbender, out this summer (yup, you'll get a double dose of Jackson on the big screen this summer with Eclipse and Airbender!).

The film is based on the Nickelodeon animated show by the same name and in it, Jackson plays Sokka, the older brother of Katara (Nicola) who is a Waterbender and the two set out on an adventure to try to bring balance back to a world torn apart by war.

And that's not all Jackson's up to — on top of it all, he also rocks out in his band 100 Monkeys, currently on tour!
