Peter Facinelli Offers Up A Meaty ‘Eclipse’ Tease: ‘It’s Dangerous And Deadly’

Now that you all have your own copies of the “New Moon” DVD on hand (or are anxiously awaiting giving a finger wagging to your friendly neighborhood postal worker), papa Cullen himself, Peter Facinelli, figured that it was precisely the right time to look, uh, forward at the future of the “Twilight” franchise.

On Friday night at New York City midnight release party for “NM” at Best Buy, Peter declared that “Eclipse” was his favorite book in the series because of the personal connection (or lack there of) his alter-ego, Carlisle, has to the main storyline. “You have the love triangle, and within that, there’s a looming presence that’s threatening the family, so there’s a lot going on within our family,” he said, adding that the “threat” majorly affects the patriarch’s ability to make important decisions.

“Carlisle is used to getting information and having that information through Edward, who can read minds, and Alice, who can read the future, so that communication is shut off and we’re not quite sure where this threat is coming from,” Peter continued. “We know it’s there, we know it’s dangerous and deadly.”

So what’s the almighty coven leader to do? “Carlisle’s kind of got to keep it together and protect his family. He’s kind of flying with blinders on.”

If that promise of action isn’t enough to keep your mouth watering for “Eclipse,” Peter said (like most of the rest of the cast has before him), “We have some great battle sequences in there. It’s a really good story.”

Is “Eclipse” your favorite book in the series like it is to Peter? And how many times have you watched “New Moon” on DVD by now?
