Peter Facinelli makes directing debut, reflects on an old favorite — the retro PIX game

Actor Peter Facinelli adds director to his growing list of credits.  The actor,  known for his work in the five "Twilight" movies and on the TV series "Nurse Jackie," takes the helm in "Breaking & Exiting."   Facinelli admits his love of sharing stories and how directing gives him the opportunity to explore it more.

"Breaking & Exiting" is a dark comedy telling the tale of a burglar who walks in a woman trying to take her own life.  Instead of going about his business, the thief sticks around  to make sure she's okay.  Milo Gibson and Jordan Hinton star in the film.  It is currently in theaters and available on digital platforms.

And there's plenty more to talk about with Peter Facinelli.  The New York native seems to have fond childhood memories of PIX11.  He even put in a special request to bring back the TV PIXXX game (Oji is working on it).

Sitting in the wings during the interview with PIX11 were Facinelli's father, 2 daughters and niece--and that made it a true family affair.
