Peter Facinelli Named 'Worst Vampire'

Peter Travers of Rolling Stone has named his top ten best and top five worst vampires on film and tv. Taking the top spot on the worst vampires list is Peter Facinelli playing patriarch of the Cullen family, Carlisle Cullen. Travers writes:

"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."

Peter responded to this honor via Twitter on Wednesday, Aug. 25:

"YES! I finally came in Number 1 in something! ....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."

I think Peter handled this criticism well and Carlisle would be proud of his position on the list. He's a healer at heart after all, not a killer. Love ya, Peter! :)

In comparison, Bela Lugosi as Dracula topped the list of best vampires on screen and Rob Pattinson came in at number ten on the same list. To view both lists, go here.


  1. :O lol he doesnt care. but he is not the worst. hes so good at acting the part hes so cute!

  2. Of course he's the 'worst' vampire. He's not blond because it looks good (but it does) but because he's got a 'white' soul, as in 'good'. That's why Aro is black. I really do think it's a compliment, Carlisle is supposed to be like this, so job well done. Also..He'd be nr 1 on 'cutest vampire' list anytime!!

  3. Twilight sucks butt. And don't diss Austin Scarlett, he's the bomb diggity.
