'Twilight's' Carlisle: Worst Vampire EVER?

'Twilight's' Carlisle: Worst Vampire EVER?-photo

Is Peter Facinelli, who portrays Cullen family patriarch Carlisle Cullen in Twilight, the Worst Vampire in Film amd TV History? Rolling Stone film critic Peter Travers thinks so, ranking poor Peter the #1 worst blood-sucker ever. (Robert Pattinson makes the Best list, but only at #10.)

According to Travers:

Facinelli is a solid actor, but playing Carlisle Cullen, the white-haired head of the fang-challenged Cullen vampire family, he looks about as terrifying as Project Runway winner Austin Scarlett, whom Carisle closely resembles.

Burn! But to Facinelli's credit, he has responded to this insult in a very gracious, Carlisle-like manner. He said via Twitter:

Thank you Mr. Travers. As Carlisle is a compassionate humanitarian, and anti-vampire in nature, being the worst Vampire was quite the compliment. Although, you had me at "solid actor". :) I did find the comparison to Austin Scarlett utterly ridiculous though ... He has way better cheek bones.

Also, we must note that as fabulous as he is, Austin Scarlett did not win Project Runway.

Do you think Peter Facinelli is the Worst Vampire Ever? Holler back in the comments.

    hahaha the first thing I thought of when I first saw Peter Facinelli as Carlisle was Austin Scarlett :D which is indeed "utterly ridiculous", I only ever watched Project Runway to laugh my head off at Austin Scarlett... well just another utterly ridiculous thing about Twilight :D

    This is why i absolutely love Peter. His tweet was sooo Carlisle. I think that he does and awesome job at being carlisle. He exceeds my expectations of how i thought Carlisle would be portrayed.

    He's an awesome actor!!! He's acutally one of the best actors in the twilight movies actually! He can act much better than the "wonder" kristin stewart! and he's defenitly a sexy vampire

    I love when people critic a character based on a popular book, then they don't even read the book that the character is portraying and then critize the way the person is playing it! They did this to Tom Hank's when he did Dan Brown's famous book character, and yet they never read the book, just critized the way the character was, even though Tom nailed the character!

    LOL this is so funny! Who gives a damn?

  • nicki18

    how on earth can that travers person say he is the ''worst vampire ever''

  • lulu

    are you kidding me? he's EXACTLY how I pictured Carlise from the book. and most vampires in general. besides the reviewer for Rolling Stones is terrible I never agree with anything the staff says about movies, music, etc. Though I've lost my interest in Twilight I had to defend Peter bc he's the only one who makes watching the movies bearable.
