When you’re a part of an absolutely monstrous franchise like Peter Facinelli, it’s easy to forget there’s life for the actor beyond The Twilight Saga. However, not only does Facinelli have quite the list of titles to his name, but he’s been working on a number of other project between the Twilight films, the most recent of which is something he not only starred in, but wrote and produced, too, Loosies. Here what he has to say about the film below.
Forget the Volturi. In “Twilight” star Peter Facinelli’s screenwriting debut, “Loosies,” the actor’s traded in villainous vamps for a more real (albeit, less toothy) foe: NYPD’s finest. Facinelli plays Bobby, a charismatic pickpocket who roams the New York City subway looking for hapless marks while alluding the cop whose badge he pilfered. The script took Facinelli only three weeks to write, but seven years to bring to the big-screen, giving him plenty of time to prepare—including mastering his character’s career skills. See the interview below.
