Peter Facinelli: The Perverted Dr.?

Showtime, responsible for such hit shows as Weeds, Californication, The United States of Tara, Dexter, The Tudors, and The L Word, is adding Peter Facinelli to its list of on-staff talent. Playing Dr. Cooper in the new series Nurse Jackie, Facinelli will be joined by none other than the fabulous The Sopranos long-timer Edie Falco (the lovely and enduring Carmela Soprano).

Facinelli stated that his character longs for the approval of Nurse Jackie, and that he suffers from quite the condition - sexual Tourette's Syndrome. In the preview, whilst Nurse Jackie puts Dr. Cooper in his place, he can't help but reach out and put his hand upon her mammory gifts. Says Facinelli, Dr. Cooper's sexual tick only comes out when he is nervous and stressed - a condition that the bull-headed and feverish Nurse Jackie tends to put him in on numerous occasions.
