Can’t Hardly Wait
Peter starred as Mike Dexter in this movie along with Jennifer Love Hewitt and Seth Green. The premise of the movie is it's high school graduation, and like all seniors they want to party. So 500 high school seniors look forward to a party, while in the meantime a boy wants to get a girl he's loved for years that just broke up with her boyfriend and one head-case that wants revenge on a lifelong bully. So the party comes, things develop. People have sex, drink, and go along with most of the guidelines of a high school graduation party.
The Big Kahuna
Peter starred in The Big Kahuna along with Kevin Spacey and Danny DeVito. On the last evening of a convention two seen-it-all industrial lubricant salesmen and a youngster from the research department gather in the hotel's hospitality suite to host a delegates party. The main aim is to get the business of one particular big fish. When it becomes apparent that it is the lad who has developed a direct line to the guy, his strong religious beliefs bring him into sharp conflict with his older and more cynical colleagues.
Six Feet Under
Peter also did nine episodes in the drama series “Six Feet Under.” He played a recurring character, Jimmy. The show took a darkly comical look at members of a dysfunctional family that run an independent funeral home. With the prodigal elder son (Nate) returning home for the holidays to shattering news, the family must learn to deal with a death of their own, while figuring out how to go ahead with the business of the living. A funny and emotional look at a grieving American family…that just happens to be in the grief management business.
Riding In Cars With Boys
Peter Facinelli starred in this movie along with Drew Barrymore, James Woods, Rosie Perez, Sara Gilbert, Brittany Murphy, and Steve Zahn. From an early age, Beverly displays a keen intelligence and an interest in literature, and dreams of going to college in New York and becoming a writer. However, she also develops an early interest in boys, and at 15 finds herself madly in love with a boy from her high school. However, an attempt to get his attention leads to an embarrassing incident at a party, and Ray, a sweet but thick-headed 18-year-old, steps forward to defend her. Beverly and Ray end up making out, and after one thing leads to another.
In this Showtime series, Peter plays a doctor, Dr. Fitch Cooper alongside Edie Falco, who plays Nurse Jackie, a drug-addicted nurse who struggles to find a balance between the demands of her frenetic job at a New York City hospital and an array of personal dramas.
The Twilight Saga
Peter portrays the sexy vampire, Dr. Carlisle Cullen, in this mega series. Twilight is a phenomenon. The story is about a young girl, Bella Swan, who basically falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen. Bella Swan has always been a little bit different. Never one to run with the crowd, Bella never cared about fitting in with the trendy, fake girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother remarried and Bella chooses to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she didn't expect much of anything to change. But things do change when she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen. For Edward is nothing like any boy she's ever met. (Yeah, cause his a VAMPIRE!) He's nothing like anyone she's ever met, period. He's intelligent and witty, and he seems to see straight into her soul. In no time at all, they are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance – unorthodox because Edward really isn't like the other boys. He can run faster than a mountain lion. He can stop a moving car with his bare hands. (Oh, and he hasn't aged since 1918!)
