Sorry, ladies. But a Twilight Saga stud is off the market.

Jackson Rathbone surprised many this week by announcing that he married Sheila Hafsadi, his girlfriend of over two years who he met when playing a show with his former band, 100 Monkeys.

The ceremony took place in Los Angeles Sunday.

Rathbone and Hafsadi, who works as a burlesque dancer, welcomed a son together in July of last year.

Kellan Lutz has the abs. He has the broad shoulders. He has that killer smile.

So this Breaking Dawn premiere-based Fashion Face-Off is over before it beings, right? Wrong, thanks to Jackson Rathbone's shiny suit.

The Twilight Saga star went all out at last night's event in Los Angeles, contrasting himself with his co-star's all-black look by standing out in an outfit unlike any other on the red carpet. As we continue with our style showdowns from the evening - Rob takes on Taylor HERE, Kristen challenges Ashley HERE - it's time for readers to choose between Lutz and Rathbone. Good luck.

Life is pretty good for Jackson Rathbone these days.

The Twilight Saga star will appear on No Ordinary Family, a critically acclaimed new series on ABC. He'll also reprise his role as Jasper Hale in Breaking Dawn, which comes out in November 2011. THG spoke to the actor this week and asked him about filming the latter...

Edward on His Wedding Day

What are your thoughts on working with director Bill Condon?
I’m extremely excited. I think we’re very blessed to have a director of his level being in this film. We’ve had such amazing directors and now we have an Academy Award winner directing the last two installments. It’s lovely because I get to learn something from each director. Their style and the way they run sets. One day when I pick up a script and start directing it myself, I’ll have a lot more to learn from. I’ll be able to use, or basically steal stuff from the directors I’ve worked with.

According to sources, Kristen Stewart is a "young woman in love" on the set of Eclipse.

That's great and all, but can we get an update on the actual shooting of the third Twilight Saga film?!?

Thanks to Jackson Rathbone, the answer is an Obama-like: Yes, we can! The actor that plays Jasper Hale spoke to MTV this week about his character's role in the movie. Here are excerpts from the interview:

On Jasper's Civil War backstory: I get to shoot some Civil War stuff, and I'm also going to shoot a lot of fighting scenes.

On fighting techniques in Eclipse: We're talking about newborn vampires that can't control their urges — they can't really think very quickly. So if you just let them go to their instincts and evade and attack them from side to side, you could get them; but if you try and go after them through force, they're going to win every time. So it's all about evasion.

On the scene where Jasper becomes a vampire: It's going to be great. I've been studying up a lot on the Civil War and that era. It really was a crazy time. It was all-out war on our own turf and between countrymen... It's an interesting time to see when Jasper was actually human and what his human form was and, when he gets turned, how intense and how dark he is. Then [we'll see] his realization of what he's become, him finding Alice and being redeemed by love.

Eclipse will be released on June 30, 2010. Seven months prior to that, New Moon hits theaters on November 20.

Which are you more excited for?
