Nickelodeon’s wildly popular animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender is getting live action treatment from director M. Night Shyamalan and now Jesse McCartney is in talks to portray Zuko, the exiled and banished Prince of the Fire Nation. Nothing is confirmed as of yet.
The ‘Leaving’ singer is branching out more and more into acting, with a special appearance back in the fall on Law & Order: SVU and in March, he will be a multi-episode guest star on Greek.
Speaking of cast for The Last Airbender, (Avatar will be dropped from the movie title because Titanic director James Cameron has a new movie called Avatar coming out,) Jackson Rathbone (Jasper in ‘Twilight’ ) has been reportedly cast as Sokka, Aang’s sidekick and Katara’s brother. The Last Airbender is due out in 2010.
