Rathbone will once again be seen playing the role of vampire Jasper Hale in the last segment of the Twilight series, “Breaking Part 2″ this November, but would like to see his character carried on in another element.

He told Bang Showbiz, “They are always discussing it, it depends how they would go about it. I have loved my character and I have loved playing Jasper through the years, so if there is an extension of playing Jasper - more so in his own element, maybe go back in time and do a vampire western, show Jasper where he came from - I would be down for that. I would sign up for that.”
