Peter Facinelli talks about filming New Moon

Peter Faninelli talks with People Magazine about filming New Moon.

Twilight's Peter Facinelli, who will reprise his role as the bloodsucking
father figure Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the sequel New Moon, could get used to the
life of a vampire – at least when it comes to the hours they keep. "I love night
shoots. Everybody else is [tired] by like two, three in the morning, which is
weird because I'm the old guy!" Facinelli tells PEOPLE at the Los Angeles
premiere of Ghosts of Girlfriends Past on Monday night. "They should be the ones
that should be like party hardy all night long," jokes the 35-year-old of his
young costars including Robert Pattinson, 22,
Kristen Stewart, 19, and 17-year-old Taylor Lautner. "At five
in the morning I was like, 'I could go another 10 hours!' And they were like,
'Crash!' " Also up for around-the-clock action: fans, who have been camping out
on the Vancouver set despite the less-than-welcoming weather. "The first [film]
we were just hoping people went to see it. We knew there were diehard fans and
those are the ones we're like, 'Let's make a good movie for [them],' but we
didn't know the diehard fans were going to explode into the amount that they
did," he says. But the father of three insists he's nothing but grateful for the
fan-demonium. "I feel loved by so many fans, like I went to Disneyland the other
day, and I took like 100 pictures just walking like 10 feet … you want to give
back to them." Next up, Facinelli will play another kind of doctor in Nurse
Jackie, a Showtime dramady debuting in June. How did he prepare to play the
"quirky" character, who inappropriately grabs costar Edie Falco? "I did do a
whole class on boob grabbing!" he says with a laugh. What did wife Jennie Garth
think about that? He teases, "[I told her], 'You're my test subject!' "
