Do Your Best Work, The Subjectivity of Art

No stranger to Hollywood, Peter Facinelli’s craft as a leading man has undoubtedly created a strong foothold that has transcended from the spotlight as actor, to behind the camera as a notable director, writer, and producer.

With a myriad of credits under his belt, Facinelli is likely most recognized for his starring role as Doctor Carlisle Cullen in the blockbuster TWILIGHT franchise, based on Stephenie Meyer’s #1 New York Times bestselling literary series. Next up for Facinelli is the STX film COUNTDOWN starring opposite Elizabeth Lail, P.J. Byrne, and Jordan Calloway, as well as RUNNING WITH THE DEVIL (September 13th, 2019 release) starring opposite Nicolas Cage, Laurence Fishburne, and Leslie Bibb,

Facinelli recently completed his second directorial feature HOUR OF LEAD, which he also wrote starring Anne Heche, Thomas Jane, and Jason Patric. He made his debut as a director last year with the indie sensation “Breaking and Exiting,” starring Jordan Hinson and Milo Gibson.

Additional recent credits include the 1920’s mobster pic GANGSTER LAND, the thriller ASHER, opposite Famke Janssen, Ron Perlman and Richard Dreyfuss, Damian Harris’ indie feature THE WILDE WEDDING opposite John Malkovich and Glenn Close, as well as the Chris Silverton thriller HEARTTHROB starring Lone Skye and Keir Gilchrist.

Despite success on the silver screen, Facinelli has also made his mark in television with such credits as the CBS Drama S.W.A.T. as Michael Plank, and Dr. Fitch Cooper on the full seven season run of Showtime’s hit dramedy NURSE JACKIE. Among its numerous accolades, the series earned Emmy, SAG, Golden Globe, and Writers Guild Award nominations, as well as being named one of AFI’s Top Ten Television Shows of 2009.

Facinelli additionally portrayed villain “Maxwell Lord” in the first season of the hit CBS show SUPERGIRL, and starred opposite Anna Friel in NBC’s drama AMERICAN ODYSSEY in 2015. He also appeared in
GLEE, DAMAGES, HBO’s SIX FEET UNDER, for which he shared the cast’s 2005 nomination for the SAG Award for Best Ensemble in a Drama; as well as a starring role in FASTLANE in 2003.

In 2010 Facinelli started the production company A7sle Films. Its first feature, LOOSIES, was a
fast-paced dramatic comedy that Facinelli wrote and starred in about a clever and romantic pickpocket in
the New York City subways. It co-starred Michael Madsen, Jaimie Alexander, Vincent Gallo, and Joe
Pantoliano. The company later partnered with FilmDistrict to produce the true story horror picture THE
LAST WORD, based on a documentary of the same name about Johnny Frank Garrett, which premiered
at the Austin Film Festival in 2016, and was directed by acclaimed indie director Simon Rumley. The company has additionally produced projects across film, TV, and digital platforms with Electus, 5×5, Boom Comics, College Humor, YouTube, ISH, and ARC Productions.

A man of many trades, Facinelli augmented his writing repertoire in 2015 when he co-wrote After the Red Rain, a YA novel with New York Times best-selling author Barry Lyga, which was distributed by Little Brown Company. It is a dystopian novel set in a future world of environmental collapse and mass poverty, where a mysterious boy named Rose discovers that he possesses inhuman powers that can irrevocably change the lives of everyone on the planet.

A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Facinelli splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.
