TV Guide Magazine: How do you keep Cooper such a likable loser without him becoming a caricature?
Facinelli: I remember during the first season, people would say "Oh, you play the a--h*** on Nurse Jackie." And I thought, ishe? I see him more as a child. Coop never acts in malice... he just says whatever he's thinking. No filter.
TV Guide Magazine: It's been a pretty rough run for him lately with his lesbian moms divorcing and all that, huh?
Facinelli: It was actually kind of difficult to play Cooper this season. There were a few episodes where he was really depressed and I usually play him with such high energy, so to have him walking around being down was hard.
TV Guide Magazine: Are things going to improve for him?
Facinelli: Yes. With losing his moms, he decides that he is going to start his own family. [Laughs] He gets it into his head that he will get married... and this is before he even finds a woman!
TV Guide Magazine: This can't end well. So what can you tell us about the final "Twilight" films?
Facinelli: Bill Condon directed them so I was excited to work with him, and the scripts were great. The fans are really gonna love them.
TV Guide Magazine: So who is the better doctor, Cooper or Carlisle Cullen?
Facinelli: I would say Carlisle, since he has more years on Coop. Although I think Coop can be a good doctor, depending on what day it is. [Laughs] He can either cure you of cancer or kill you with an ear infection.
