Happy Birthday, Jackson Rathbone: A look back at his pre-'Twilight' TV rolesAdd to Favorites | The O.C.
Rathbone showed up in the FOX soap's third season as a teenager tangled up in the web of Kaitlin Cooper -- not the pony-riding Shailene Woodley version, the sexed-up Willa Holland version.
Here, Rathbone played another teenager, this time a privileged, "Gossip Girl"-style rich kid who falls in love with the new girl -- a scholarship kid -- at his fancy prep school.
"The War at Home"
This FOX sitcom lasted for two seasons, and Rathbone guest-starred in two Season 2 episodes as a gay teen. He co-starred alongside Rami Malek, who would later appear in "Breaking Dawn" as a Cullen family vampire ally.
