Peter Talks 'Twilight'
Facinelli chats with Celebuzz about 'Breaking Dawn.'
Sure, everybody raves about Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, but one of Twilight’s secret weapons is everyone’s favorite vampire doctor, Carlisle Cullen, played by the terrific Peter Facinelli.

The hunky actor, who turns 38 today, has appeared in all four of the Twilight movies, including Breaking Dawn – Part 1, in theaters now. But that’s just a small piece of his impressive resume, which spans both the big and small screen. Other memorable gigs include Six Feet Under, Damages and Showtime’s Emmy-winning dramedy Nurse Jackie. Oh, and did we mention he’s married to 90210 beauty Jennie Garth? Yeah, we’re jealous, too.

In honor of Peter’s 38th birthday, we’re taking a look back at his career in photos. Check it out in our gallery now, then be sure to wish Peter a very happy birthday in the comments!
