Bio

Peter Facinelli is an American actor best known for his starring role as young, seemingly perfect Dr. Fitch "Coop" Cooper in the dark comedy television series Nurse Jackie.

He also starred as Donovan 'Van' Ray on the television crime series Fastlane, from 2002-2003.

Facinelli also starred as Dr. Carlisle Cullen, the altruistic patriarch of the Cullen clan, in the blockbuster feature films, Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon for Summit Entertainment, based on Stephenie Meyer's #1 New York Times bestselling series about a Romeo & Juliet-style romance between a mortal and a vampire.

Both films broke multiple box-office records. Facinelli reprised his role in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third installment in the series.

Facinelli also starred opposite Matthew Broderick and Brittany Snow in the dramedy, Finding Amanda, which premiered at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival.

His portrayal in The Big Kahuna as Bob Walker, a devout Baptist whose strong religious beliefs bring him into sharp conflict with his older and more cynical colleagues, earned Facinelli rave reviews.

Also starring Kevin Spacey and Danny DeVito, the film premiered at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and was also accepted at the Toronto Film Festival that year.

His additional feature film credits include The Scorpion King, opposite Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson; Penny Marshall's Riding In Cars With Boys, opposite Drew Barrymore; a starring role in Walter Hills' sci-fi thriller Supernova with James Spader and Angela Bassett; Can't Hardly Wait, opposite Jennifer Love Hewitt; Dancer, Texas Pop. 81 with Breckin Meyer; and Foxfire, opposite Angelina Jolie.

Facinelli co-starred in a recurring role on Damages, FX's award-winning legal thriller, starring Glenn Close.

His additional television credits include a starring role in McG's sexy one-hour drama Fastlane and a recurring role as a promising art student and love interest for Lauren Ambrose's character in the award-winning series Six Feet Under.
