Peter Facinelli shops Lacoste, talks about dual doctor roles

January 27, 2010 |  2:16 pm

Peter Facinelli at Lacoste While some of his Forks, Wash., cohorts were at the Sundance Film Festival, vampire patriarch Peter Facinelli squeezed in some shopping time in Los Angeles.

Hitting up Rodeo Drive's Lacoste boutique on Tuesday, Facinelli and wife Jennie Garth snuggled and shopped for crocodile-adorned garments. Call this quality time before the storm, as Facinelli is gearing up for massive promotion of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" and his critically acclaimed Showtime dramedy "Nurse Jackie." 

Facinelli spoke with Entertainment Tonight recently about the pressure of filming the roles simultaneously -- both characters are medical pros, but very different personalities.

"It was actually really fun for me to do such contrasting roles because Carlisle [Cullen] is such a calming force; he's a rock, and he's a foundation of this family. And [Dr. Fitch Cooper] is none of that. He runs around like he's had four cans of Red Bull," the actor said.

Perhaps Jennie should stock up on the energy drinks, as Peter's going to be traveling the world with the likes of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson come May.

"Eclipse" hits theaters June 30, and "Nurse Jackie" returns to Showtime on March 22. Are you excited to see Facinelli back in his lab coat? Tell me in comments.
