Peter Facinelli stars in "Nurse Jackie" on Showtime as Dr. Fitch Cooper. He also stars in CMT's reality docu-series "I Love Jennie," along with his wife Jennie Garth and their three children.

Peter Facinelli was recently seen starring as Dr. Carlisle Cullen, the altruistic patriarch of the Cullen clan, in the blockbuster feature films "Twilight," "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," and "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" for Summit Entertainment. The "Twilight" film franchise is based on Stephenie Meyer's #1 New York Times best-selling literary series. All three films shattered multiple box office records. Facinelli will soon reprise his role in the final installments of the franchise, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2."

In 2010, Facinelli started a production company, Facinelli Films. Facinelli Films is currently in post-production on its first feature, "Loosies." Facinelli wrote and will star in the fast-paced dramatic comedy about a successful pickpocket in the New York City subways. Additionally, Facinelli Films is in pre-production on the film, "Paz," also starring Facinelli. The film follows the inspirational true story of champion boxer, Vinny Pazienza, who, after a paralyzing accident, defied all odds and not only walked again but was able to get back into the ring to continue his boxing career. Facinelli has also written and will produce and star in "El Chico Blanco." The film follows the story of Ben Harper, a white kid growing up in a Hispanic community who rises against racial tension and a stint in prison to lead the most powerful and feared gang in the city.

Facinelli has turned in a number of eclectic and impressive performances, establishing him as one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors. He has lent his talents to a number of feature films. He recently starred with Matthew Broderick and Brittany Snow in the dramedy "Finding Amanda," which premiered at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival. Other film credits include starring roles opposite Eric Stoltz and Tate Donovan in the independent "The Lather Effect," which debuted at the 2006 L.A. Film Festival, and alongside Christian Slater in "Hollow Man 2." Facinelli was also seen in "Stealing Time," with Ethan Embry and Scott Foley; "The Scorpion King," starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson; "Riding in Cars with Boys," starring Drew Barrymore and directed by Penny Marshall; and "The Big Kahuna," which debuted at the 1999 Toronto and Sundance Film Festivals, in a performance that received rave reviews opposite Kevin Spacey and Danny De Vito. Additional credits include Bill Bennet's "Tempted," opposite Burt Reynolds; Walter Hill's sci-fi thriller "Supernova," with James Spader and Angela Bassett; "Can't Hardly Wait," alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt; "Foxfire," opposite Angelina Jolie; and "Dancer, Texas, Pop. 81," with Breckin Meyer. Other roles include "Blue Ridge Fall," "Telling You," "Touch Me," "Honest" and "Angela," winner of the 1995 Filmmaker's Trophy at the Sundance Film Festival.



On the small screen, Facinelli played a recurring role on FX's "Damages," the legal thriller starring Glenn Close. He played the leading role in A&E's action-packed and inspiring true story, "Touch the Top of the World," a telefilm about the first blind man to climb Mt. Everest. Facinelli's undeniable versatility was displayed in his starring role in McG's sexy FOX drama "Fastlane," and his recurring part on the award-winning HBO series "Six Feet Under," as a popular and promising art student who becomes involved with Lauren Ambrose's character, Claire.

Born and raised in New York, Facinelli attended NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. He worked as an actor there until his role in the television film "After Jimmy" brought him to Los Angeles, where he still resides.
