Peter Facinelli on Directorial Debut, Why Directing Is More "Nerve-Racking" Than Acting

Peter Facinelli on Directorial Debut, Why Directing Is More
For Peter Facinelli, the responsibility for his directorial film debut, Breaking & Exiting, falls squarely on him in a way that differs from his acting projects, he says.

"When you're an actor and you go to a screening, you sit there and you think, 'Wow, I hope people like my performance,' and that's what you own. And with this movie, I take responsibility for all the performances, the clothes that they're wearing. I take responsibility for the music that you're hearing, and the pacing of the movie — everything falls on me," he ...

‘90210’ Star Jennie Garth Lists Home Above Studio City (Exclusive)
Fast on the heels of reports that Jennie Garth, one of the stars of the cult favorite 1990s series “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and third husband, Dave Abrams, are headed for divorce court, she’s unsurprisingly listed her custom-renovated residence in L.A.’s less-renowned but still keenly sought-after 91604 zip code with an asking price pushing up on $4.5 million. The Studio City spread was purchased a bit more than five years ago for exactly $2 million; the trials and tribulations of a subsequent million-dollar renovation were shown on the 2014 Hgtv series “The Jennie Garth Project.” Secured by remote-controlled gates and shielded from view by a high fence and even taller trees on almost an acre of hill-topping land, the stylishly charcoal-colored contemporary sprawls over about 4,100 square feet with five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms under a striking jumble of severely angled rooflines.

Peter Facinelli Lists Gated Cape Cod-ish House in Toluca Lake (Exclusive)
Known for his roles as vampiric doctor Carlisle Cullen in the “Twilight” film series and the audaciously vain yet endlessly insecure Dr. Fitch Cooper on the tightly wound mid-aughts HBO series “Nurse Jackie,” versatile actor Peter Facinelli set his home in the Toluca Lake area of Los Angeles, Calif., out for sale at $2.695 million. Facinelli, who’s recently done short stints on “Supergirl” and “S.W.A.T.” and will soon appear on the silver screen in the upcoming, Nicolas Cage-starring drug trade thriller “Running With the Devil,” purchased the then brand-new two-story house in August of 2013 — shortly after his divorce from “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Jennie Garth — for $2.015 million, a small but notable bit above it’s $1.995 million asking price. Privately positioned behind a thick hedge and an electronic driveway gate on an unassumingly upscale street, the vaguely Cape Cod-style residence has five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in 3,854-square-feet.

New Trailer for Dark Comedy 'Breaking & Exiting' with Jordan Hinson

"I think you're making a mistake, I think you could be happy..." Freestyle Digital Media has debuted an official trailer for a dark romantic comedy titled Breaking & Exiting, the feature directorial debut of actor Peter Facinelli (who does not have a role in the film). The pitch for this is rather odd - it's about a thief who breaks in to a woman's home and discovers her about to kill herself. So, as the logline says, he "decides to save her from herself, sending both of them into a darkly comedic journey of self-discovery and love." But of course. The cast is lead by Milo Gibson and Jordan Hinson, who also wrote the screenplay; along with Adam Huber, Joaquim de Almeida, Justine Wachsberger, James Kyson, Lily Anne Harrison, and Cecile Cubilo. This doesn't look so bad, but doesn't look so good either. If you're curious, take a look. Here's
