Biography

A magnetic but all-too-infrequent presence in film and television during the late 1990s and early 2000s, actor Peter Facinelli excelled at playing wounded, often conflicted young men whose emotions frequently got the better of him and those around him. He made his initial splash in TV movies before gaining a groundswell with features like "Can't Hardly Wait" (1998) and "The Scorpion King" (2002). However, his ascent to stardom seemed to sputter out shortly thereafter - his debut as a series lead with "Fastlane" (Fox, 2002-03) was met with indifference, and subsequent movie roles went largely unseen. In fact, for a time, it looked like he was relegated to being best know for being former "90210" (Fox, 1990-2000) star Jennie Garth's real-life husband. Television seemed to be his best showcase, where he gave stellar turns as a selfish artist on "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05) and a jittery crime witness in "Damages" (FX, 2007- ). Appearances in the much-anticipated vampire drama "Twilight" (2008) and other film projects seemed to indicate that Facinelli could return to prominence as one of the more promising and versatile young actors in Hollywood.
