Peter Facinelli, Liz Reaser, Nikki Reed Talk Twilight Highs and Lows With NBC

Did you ever have those moments like, ‘What the hell did I get myself into?’ Like, ‘This is way bigger than I ever imagined when I signed that contract.’

Facinelli: I think none of us knew that it was going to be this big. But speaking for myself, I was very appreciative that it became this big. To be part of something that becomes a global phenomenon is rare. As an actor, you’ll have things that certain people attach themselves to and appreciate, but that’s something that’s seen on such a global scale. It’s really like a cultural phenomenon. I hope to have that again in a movie in my career. As an actor I do movies because I want them to be seen by the masses. And this is as mass as you can get.

Reed: Yeah, and there’s definitely frustrations and challenges that are part of it. I mean, that’s life, right? It’s not ever perfect. But I think when I have moments where I feel like overwhelmed by a certain scenario or, for example, there’s a paparazzi chasing me or something like that and you’re like ‘What? What has my life become? This is not who I am. This doesn’t represent me.’ But then you have to sort of remember that, like I said, these things will come and go. And they’re sort of high-class problems, which is great. And it’s going to go away.

Peter Facinelli Reflects on teh End of Twilight With Vanity Fair

Vanity Fair asked Peter Facinelli to look back on his Twilight experience.

Julie Miller: How does it feel to be at your last Comic-Con for Twilight?

Peter Facinelli: It’s a little sad. I’m going to miss the fans. They’ve treated us so well, at Comic-Con especially. But just because the movies are over doesn’t mean the fans will disappear. I hope. Otherwise it will be me standing outside with a bunch of markers and no one who wants an autograph. [Laughs.]

Are you going to mourn Carlisle after the film opens in November?

I’ve mourned all of my characters but I haven’t really mourned him yet. Maybe in December, I’ll have a little vigil for Carlisle. Usually, when I wrap a character, there’s a three-to-five day depression that I go through because a part of you is gone. You’ll never get to play that character again. I got so used to playing Carlisle, though, that I never had to mourn the loss of him because I knew I would revisit him at some point. When we wrapped last time, I think we shot for six months. I wasn’t ready to mourn him; I was just thankful to be done. I knew that also I would have Comic-Con and there would be press [for the movie], so he is kind of still with me. But I think in December, there is no more to talk about. It’ll be complete.

Peter Faccinelli goes to Comic Con in Chile

Peter Faccinelli was at Comic Con in Chile this weekend. He was among several high profile guests such as Margot Kidder from the Superman movies and Billy Dee Williams from the Star Wars movies. In fact, Peter seemed in awe of being with Margot and Billy Dee since he is a fan of their movies.

Peter Facinelli Talks His First Job

The Wall Street Journal is doing a feature on various celebrities’ first working experience.

Growing up in Queens, New York, in the 1980s, Peter Facinelli was anxious to get around. Too young to ride the subways alone, Facinelli’s dominant means of transportation became his bicycle. Which is why it came as no surprise that Facinelli entered the working world in an occupation that relied heavily on his wheels — newspaper boy.

“I wasn’t very good. I’m really lazy and I hated getting up in the mornings so my mom would get up, and bless her heart, she would fold the newspapers and put the rubber bands on them and then she would put all the papers in my milk carton basket that was strapped onto my bike. I would, half-sleepily like in a zombie state, deliver these newspapers,” said Facinelli, who will reprise his role as the vampiric Dr. Carlisle Cullen in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.”

We can say from experience that Peter’s work ethic has improved. He is one of the most energetic and always prepared and professional actors on the Official Twilight Tour.

Video: Peter Facinelli Talks About Producing, Directing, and Acting

Shockya had the chance to interview Peter Facinelli about taking the total plunge on the other side of the camera. People always ask what Twilight has given to the actors involved. For Facinelli it’s clearly the ability to start a production company and doing his own projects.

This press release was just issued today to talk about the film’s debut.

Rhode Island film production company Verdi Productions (VP) announced today that its film “Loosies” will hit the big screen Jan 11th at the IFC Center located at 323 Sixth Avenue at West Third Street, New York City, with other locations to follow. “Loosies” is being released through IFC Films and will soon expand to over 60 million homes on Video on Demand through major US cable distributors, as well as iTunes and the SundanceNow website.

Filmed nearly entirely in Rhode Island, “Loosies” tells the story of Bobby (Peter Facinelli, “Twilight”), a NYC pickpocket, who roams the city disguised as a stockbroker. He’s handsome and charming, fitting in perfectly with the Wall Street types on the subway and downtown, but with no father and a mother who does not work, Bobby is forced to live a life of crime in order to make ends meet. He becomes the center of a citywide search and soon runs into an even bigger challenge..Lucy (Jaimie Alexander, “Thor”), a recent one-night stand. It is now three months after their passionate one night affair, and Bobby is confronted with a tough reality. Lucy informs him she is pregnant, and that the child is his. Suddenly two different worlds collide, forcing Bobby to reevaluate a lifetime of missteps.

“Loosies” was directed by Rhode Island native Michael Corrente and co-stars Rhode Island actors Tommy DeNucci, (“Inkubus”, “Infected”), Tom Paolino, (“Inkubus”, “Infected”) and Sera Verdi(“Inkubus”, “Infected”). “One of the main goals in all my films is to utilize the talent and infrastructure we have in Rhode Island, and I’m thrilled we could shoot 90% of Loosies right here,” stated Verdi. “Having Loosies hit the big screen is a huge accomplishment and something I am very proud of. Then to have the VOD release expanded to over 60 million homes is the icing on the cake.”

“Loosies” also stars William Forsythe (“Boardwalk Empire” HBO, “Inkubus”, “Devil’s Reject”), Michael Madsen, (“Kill Bill”, “Infected”) and Vincent Gallo, (“Brown Bunny”).
