Q.  Which wld u say is easier, 2 b screenwriter or Director? Was there anything in NM that you wish could’ve changed in hindsight?

As Dr. Cooper on “Nurse Jackie”, Peter Facinelli is known for his inappropriate touches due to his character’s  “sexual tourrettes”.  Check out this video that gives a little biographical history of the actor and how he developed the character of Dr. Cooper on the series.



Check out this video of Kellan Lutz chatting it up with the papparazzi and even hugging one member during his arrival in Vancouver.

Chris Weitz sure jumped into Twitter with a big splash.  Perhaps Peter Facinelli was giving him pointers during the shooting of “New Moon”.  I love that he is taking the time to answer fan questions like that.  Honestly, I don’t know if I would have the patience to do so if I were in his shoes. 

What do you think of the Peter Facinelli video?  It’s odd seeing all of those pictures of him when he was younger. I forgot that he looked like that.   I always find it interesting to learn what someone was doing before they caught the acting bug.  I could totally see him in the legal profession, though.  Did you know that Kellan was studing Engineering before he ended up in his current career ( as was super-model Cindy Crawford). 

While I generally tend to ignore papparazzi pics and videos, I really liked seeing the friendly side of Kellan as he interacted with them at the airport.  His arrival is so drastically different from that of Rob and Kristen, considering the fact that he doesn’t live in as much of a fishbowl as those two.
