Peter Facinelli compares Twilight’s Dr. Carlisle to Nurse Jackie’s Dr. Coop

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: The Twilight stars are talking and, as usual, USA TODAY’s Susan Wloszczyna has the inside scoop. In an article published this week, Wloszczyna had a chance to chat with Peter Facinelli about playing the Twilight Saga’s “preppy patriarch” Dr. Carlisle Cullen as well as the handsy Dr. Coop in the Showtime series “Nurse Jackie”.

“Eclipse is my favorite book in the [Twilight] series…” admitted Facinelli. “I like that the two opposing forces, vampires and werewolves, band together for the common good.” Leading the charge on the good vamps side in “Eclipse” is Facinelli’s character, who is expected to play more prominently than in the first two Twilight films.

Of his concurrent project, the Showtime series, “Nurse Jackie”, Facinelli also spoke of his quirky character. Dr. Coop’s defining attribute, a tick that makes him grab womens’ breasts when he is nervous, found Peter commenting on acting the part with his female co-stars who have been on the receiving end of his groping. “They are all very good sports. It is much more awkward for me. After multiple takes, I’m worried that they will feel sore the next day.”

When asked from which doctor he’d rather receive medical care, answered Facinelli “Carlisle, bar none. He would make you live forever.”
