Jackson Rathbone's 'Airbender' Costar Doesn't Understand His Whole 'Twilight' Vampire Lifestyle

Sure Aasif Mandvi is starring alongside Jackson Rathbone in "The Last Airbender," but that doesn’t mean that he gets why anyone would want to be a vampire. Obviously, Jackson only plays a vampire in the "Twilight Saga," it's not like he actually craves human blood. But still, to Aasif that whole vampire/werewolf thing seems a bit dangerous.

"Oh, neither!" he told MTV News when asked to pick which he'd rather be. "Both of those are rather depressing lifestyles. I'd rather just be a human being. You would pick one of those? I mean a werewolf you keep turning into a werewolf and a vampire you have blood. They both seem like dysfunctional lifestyles to me."

Not that this means that he's anti-"Twilight" in any way because he's not. Then again he won't be attending TwiCon anytime soon either. "Um you know I watched it and I enjoyed it," he said. "I wouldn’t say I'm a fan but I liked it."

Still, "The Last Airbender" could use a Robert Pattinson to go with Jackson Rathbone's, well, Jackson Rathbone. So, is Aasif up for it? "Me? Yeah that’s what I would say ... I would say I'm the Robert Pattinson of 'The Last Airbender.' Yeah I would. I am absolutely," he laughs. "That’s what I would say."
