Peter Facinelli Interviewed By The Futon Critic

The Futon Critic talked to Peter Facinelli about shooting Nurse Jackie and shooting comedies and dramas:

“JH: You do a lot of comedy in ‘Nurse Jackie’ but you’ve also done darker dramas like ‘Damages’ or even the ‘Twilight’ movies. Is there a major switch you have to flip to get into those more dramatic roles?

PF: They’re different muscles but I enjoy being able to explore the different muscles. For me, I like being able to go and do something dramatic and then the next project do something completely different. If I had to do three dramatic roles in a row I’d get bored pretty quick. I’m happy right now because I have something where I can do more comedy but even on ‘Nurse Jackie’ the more dramatic I am on that show the more Coop is funny. I don’t try to play things for laughs but I just play them as real as can be. In some scenes I’ll go and break down and cry and it’s hysterical.”
