Peter Facinelli Previews Eclipse, Fight Scenes

by at . Comments

Peter Facinelli is a busy man.

He stars as Dr. Fitch Cooper on the Showtime hit Nurse Jackie and as Carlisle Cullen in the Twilight Saga.

When the actor isn't brushing up on medical jargon, he's practicing his fighting skills, as Facinelli told OK! this week that shooting on Eclipse is about to commence.

Eclipse has more action in it and so I’m excited to get in there and have Carlisle roll his sleeves up a little bit and get into fight stuff.”
