MTV: When it comes to the “Twilight” films, there are two types of scenes: Those in Stephenie’s books, and the new ones Melissa Rosenberg added. Do you feel an extra level of excitement shooting those, because they’re so new?
Facinelli: I do. A lot of people keep asking “Hey, what happens in ‘New Moon’?” And you say, “Well, if you’ve read the book, you know what happens.” But I like the scenes that aren’t necessarily in the book, that get to tell a little bit of the backstory. It adds another element to the moviemaking, and it’s a little surprise for the fans.
MTV: We’ve been asking your co-stars to give us their favorite “New Moon” line in character. Can you do yours?
Facinelli: Oh, wow. Now I have to reach back a whole year and try to remember my lines from a year ago, when I can barely remember my lines the day of. … OK, here we go: “Like everything else in life, I just had to decide what to do with what I was given.” That’s a line that Carlisle says.
MTV: OK, cool. But can you do it in character?
Facinelli: No. [Laughs.] Then, you gotta pay me. If I’m gonna act, you better pay me, Larry Carroll!
MTV: All right, we’ll take down your address and have every fan send you a quarter.
Facinelli: You know, I don’t even know if I can do Carlisle on the spot like that.
Ok, so where do we send our quarters? hehe
