If the year belonged to anyone, it belonged to Ryan Gosling, who seemed to be everywhere, making movies, giving interviews, even breaking up street fights. These are his greatest hits.
I was truly taken by the horrible customer relations nightmare that Ocean Marketing caused for itself, and really impressed at how Penny Arcade stepped up to defend the customer. Now it's become a full-fledged meme, and Paul is off the account. But maybe Mike at Penny Arcade enjoyed it just a bit too much? Or not.
Mitt Romney isn't as bad as most Republicans, at least on most issues. While the majority of the presidential candidates favor abolishing PBS and NPR, he just wants to cut off federal funding and add commercials to Sesame Street. To sell toys, which will help the economy. Or something.
Coming off the Twilight series, actor Peter Facinelli is trying his hand in the writing game with Loosies. His screenplay debut is directed Michael Corrente (American Buffalo) and comes out of nowhere, as it is currently on VOD and hitting theaters early next year. Facinelli plays a NYC pickpocket that runs into trouble with some news from a past girlfriend. The low-budget feel is clear, but the plot is somewhat intriguing. With a supporting cast that includes Vincent Gallo, Michael Madsen, Joe Pantoliano, and Thor‘s Jaimie Alexander, it could be worth checking out to see if Facinelli has any talent with the pen. Check out the trailer below via Apple.

"My kid's father steals out of old lady's handbags." Today's fun trailer is for an indie drama called Loosies, starring and written by Peter Facinelli, who plays a New York pickpocket (we've had ballerinas, spies, musicians, taxi drivers, now a pickpocket?) that learns he got a girl pregnant, which then flips his world upside, of course. Jaimie Alexander from Thor, who I must admit is absolutely beautiful and talented as all hell, also stars as the girl, Lucy, in this. Michael Madsen, Vincent Gallo and Joe Pantoliano are in it, too. This doesn't look half bad coming out of nowhere, I'm intrigued, give it a shot anyway. Watch below! Watch the official trailer for Michael Corrente's Loosies, also in high def via Apple: A young pickpocket (Facinelli) in the New York City subways, living a fast, free, lifestyle is confronted by a woman (Alexander) whom he had a one night affair with, »

Peter Facinelli has left his mark on many movies and TV shows since his debut in "Angela" in 1995, but most moviegoers now know and love the 37-year-old actor as the vampire Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the "Twilight" movies. Carlisle is head of the Cullen clan and Edward's maker, and his compassion and wisdom have helped keep his vampire family together for ages.
Carlisle also hosts the cinematic wedding of the year between Bella and Edward in "Breaking Dawn - Part 1," which opens in theaters on November 18. We caught up with the "father" of the groom as he spoke candidly about the end of "Twilight," playing doctor with chicken breasts, and which item of Carlisle's he once tried to steal.
Forbes magazine calculated that Carlisle Cullen was the wealthiest fictional character because some 350 years of compound interest and investments amassed him a fortune of $34.5 million. How does it feel to be the wealthiest vampire in history? »

The awesome Peter Facinelli had some very good luck at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff). Peter’s new movie, Loosies, has found a Us home in IFC and should get a release date in December. Read more below:
“Loosies,” shot last summer, centers on a successful pickpocket in New York City who roams the city disguised as a stockbroker — until confronted with a recent one-night stand who tells him she’s pregnant with his child. Facinelli penned the script five years ago as an homage to New York, with the ideas coming to him as he walked the streets.
Project was produced by Chad A. Verdi of Verdi Prods. along with Facinelli, Noah Kraft and Glenn Ciano. Michael Madsen, Vincent Gallo and Joe Pantoliano also star with Michael Corrente (“American Buffalo”) directing.
Cmg is selling foreign rights at Toronto and held a screening for buyers Thursday. Facinelli told Variety prior to the screening that he was inspired by several prominent films: “Midnight Cowboy,” “The Sting” and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.”

Yes, it's a bit strange to see Peter Facinelli not playing the father figure to a clan of seriously hot vampires. Obviously, the guy can play other characters, but watching him go from Carlisle Cullen's calm, paternal reassurance to his role as a single, no-attachments pickpocket who oozes charm in his new flick Loosies (which the actor actually wrote himself), can be double-take inducing. Check it out... One thing's for certain: The life of a pickpocket as Facinelli portrays it looks pretty fun—fancy suits, free cab rides, a good excuse to take a pretty lady who "lost her wallet" out to dinner. But it can't be a party all the time. Pretty soon, the consequences of his carefree »
As you probably know by now, Facinelli wrote the screenplay for this, produced it, and stars as "Bobby," a pickpocket whose one-time lover tells him she's pregnant with his child.
So, the film is probably pretty near and dear to his heart.
As indicated a moment ago, Facinelli has indicated his intention to move into the director's chair at some point as well. Loosies is his second screenplay to make it to film (the first was Accidentally in Love starring Jennie Garth, which debuted on The Hallmark Channel earlier this year), and it's also the first film his company, Facinelli Films, has been responsible for. So, »
After waiting to hear about Peter Facinelli’s Loosies for months and then getting a number of stills and an official poster for the movie, it felt like it might be awhile before we got a glimpse of the actual movie. But never fear! Tonight, we have Peter starring in the brand new trailer for Loosies, [...]

Dr. Carlisle Cullen could pick our pocket any day.
Peter Facinelli, everyone's favorite vampire dad, plays a New York City thief and con artist who's forced to rethink his carefree lifestyle when he's suddenly confronted with impending fatherhood in the new crime comedy, "Loosies."
Facinelli also makes his feature screenwriting debut with the film, which sports a pretty amazing cast. We were already impressed with seeing the likes of Michael Madsen, William Forsythe and even Vincent Gallo in the trailer, but the late appearance of Joe Pantoliano tops them all (of course).
The plot starts off a little like "Miami Blues" (remember that one?), with Facinelli stealing Madsen's badge and going on a cop-impersonation spree (however, as far as we can tell, Madsen doesn't have his fake teeth stolen as well, unlike poor Fred Ward in "Blues"). And then one of Facinelli's one-night stands (Jaimie Alexander) shows up and things get a bit more complicated. »

Peter Facinelli, the elder Twilight statesman at age 37, wrote, produced, and stars in the new movie Loosies, the story of a tricky pickpocket who discovers that his ex-girlfriend (Jaimie Alexander) is pregnant just as he finds himself on the lam. It costars Michael Madsen and Vincent Gallo, which should make you jolt an eyebrow. Let's see if Facinelli can make thievery look cool in the movie's new trailer. »

hollywoodnews.com: Though we don’t yet have a release date for “Loosies,” this week brought us the first set of stills. Posted on Peter Facinelli’s Facebook page are seven shots from the upcoming film.
Facinelli both wrote the screenplay and acted in the starring role of Bobby, a city native whose mother believes him to be a Wall Street banker. Yet, when he gets on the subway in the morning, that’s where he stays—riding the rails and picking pockets.
But don’t be fooled by his moral transgressions—it turns out that Bobby’s life of crime holds a nobler intent. Through the course of the story, the audience learns that he steals in order to pay his long-departed father’s old gambling debts.
The central conflict of the story arises when Bobby comes across Lucy, a one-night stand who claims she’s pregnant with his child. »

The storyline for Loosies is, loosely, that "Bobby" (Facinelli) is a pickpocket in New York City who lives fast and free until a woman he had a one-night-stand with, "Lucy" (Jaimie Alexander, who also joined Nurse Jackie this past season), comes forth and says that she's pregnant with his child.
This isn't the first script Facinelli's done which has gone through. Last year's Accidentally In Love was also his, and that was made for TV on the Hallm »
