Jackson Rathbone Joining No Ordinary Family

Entertainment Weekly reports that Jackson Rathbone ("The Twilight Saga," The Last Airbender) has landed a potentially recurring role on ABC’s "No Ordinary Family." Rathbone will play Trent Stafford, a high school classmate of Kay Panabaker telepathic Daphne Powell. Trent was recently the victim of a home invasion robbery.

In the show, premiering Tuesday, Sep. 28, The Powells are about to go from ordinary to extraordinary. After 16 years of marriage, Jim and Stephanie’s relationship lacks the spark it once had, and their family life now consists of balancing work and their two children, leaving little time for family bonding. During a family vacation set up by Jim in an attempt to reconnect, their plane crashes into the Amazon River. But this is where the fun starts for the Powells, as they soon discover that something’s not quite right. Each of them now possesses unique and distinct superpowers. But saving and savoring their family life will be equally important, as they try to find purpose for their new powers and embark on a journey to find out what defines and unifies them. The Powells are a totally relatable family who happen to be a little bit amazing.

Michael Chiklis ("The Shield") also stars as Jim Powell, Julie Benz ("Dexter") as Stephanie Powell, Romany Malco (The 40-Year-Old Virgin) as George St. Cloud, Tate Donovan ("Damages") as Mitch McCutcheon, Autumn Reeser as Katie Andrews, Christina Chang as Yvonne Cho and Jimmy Bennett as JJ Powell.
