Peter Facinelli’s Twilight Audition

Ever wonder what happened during a Twilight audition? Peter Facinelli talks about his process and how he didn’t get cast at first.


  1. hahaha!! Thats great! Well, I’m glad he got the part, because he is absolutely perfect for the roll of Carlisle. 🙂

  2. I watched this one and the Q&A with Ashley and they both are very sweet! How wonderful for these successful people to be down to Earth. I love celebs like that!

  3. wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii peter facinelli!! i totally love him!! and my friends too!!!
    thank you sooooooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. lmaoo “I bought my way into twilight for $29.99”
    it’s weird, i couldn’t see anyone else playing carlisle at this point, i think he’s perfect!

  5. A 45 year old ? Did they even READ the book? Carlisle had a hard time passing for his 30’s in the book and they wanted to use a 45 year old? What is wrong with these people?

  6. Who was originally cast as Carlisle?

  7. Mmm. *I* wouldn’t mind him lying on me with his hand on my leg. ;D

    Jokes. Sort of.

    And – he says ‘one more quick story’ – there are more?! I hope so!! And – a 45 year old? Isn’t he meant to be ‘young, blonde, and handsomer than any movie star I’d ever seen’? (And is it sad that I pulled that off the top of my head?)

  8. We had such a blast at the Twlight convention in Chicago! It was so great to see Peter, Ashley and Justin and to watch the Q & A sessions!! 🙂 Kudos to TWILIGHT LEXICON for all they did during the convention – GREAT JOB !!! 🙂

  9. HAHAHA. I’d like to buy my way into the Twilight movie for $29.99!

    awwww! I love him! I have always loved the Dr.’s


  11. I am so glad it worked out because Peter is the perfect Carlisle! And oh so HOT!

  12. Why would they even think of using a 45 year old? in the BD when bella says that carlisle would be a grandfather she says that he looks like zeus’s younger, better looking brother.
    anyways peter is soo hot for a dad of three. he looks good with jenny garth.

  13. I think he is so amazing. And one hot doctor. Makes me forget about the whole “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” thing 😉

  14. I’m so glad that Peter played Carlise – he was perfect. When I went to the midnight showing of Twilight Peter got the biggest gasp from the audience! I just hope that SM writes a book about Carlise soon so Peter can have a movie all to himself!

    thw original guy was like 45. That was a little too old for Carlisle. Grant you that Peter is 12 years older than what Carlisle is suppose to be. but Peter DOESN’T look it! He looks like 28.
    I was SOOO glad he got the part. H was amazing in Twilight.

  16. i’m soooo glad that they used Peter for Carlisle. rreally?? whattt were they thinking, casting that other old guy? (anyone know who it was by the way??) Carlisles supposed to be goooodd looking, and just BARELY be able to pass as 30. but yeah, I’m glad that they Peter the part(: and haha when I saw Twilight in theaters, when everyone first saw Carlisle and was like, “I heard the chiefs daughter was in town” (or something like that) eveeryone in the theater gasped soooo loudly. haha it was hilarious (i was one of the many) one last thing though (sorry this is so long!!!) like how Peter said they wanted some guy to play Carlisle, cause they wanted Esme and Carlisle to look more like parents, and not kids, but even though that Peter is younger, and so isn’t Carlisle, they still LOOK like parents, ya know?? haha.

    alsooooo he was amaazzzinggg in Twilight!!

  17. Han!! Il est tellement beau!! Mais il est mieux en Cralisle!!
