We got our hands on a first picture of Actor Jackson Rathbone as Sokka in Shyamalan’s Last Airbender:
Sokka is a young warrior of the Southern Water Tribe (and actually the only one left in his village since all the men have been made prisoners by the Fire Nation). With his sister, Katara, he accompanies Aang on his quest to defeat the Fire Lord. The joker of the group, Sokka describes himself as “meat-loving” and “sarcastic”. Unlike his companions, Sokka is not gifted with the power of bending an element, but the series, though it often makes him the victim of comedy at his expense, frequently grants him opportunities to use his ingenuity and weapons, including his trusty boomerang and a sword he forged from a meteorite.
I like the character of Sokka: he’s the stupid idiot who manages to stay clever and still get the girls. I bet that Jackson Rathbone will perform well as Sokka in the upcoming Last Airbender movie.
