Peter Facinelli Steals Away in 'Loosies' Trailer

Dr. Carlisle Cullen could pick our pocket any day.

Peter Facinelli, everyone's favorite vampire dad, plays a New York City thief and con artist who's forced to rethink his carefree lifestyle when he's suddenly confronted with impending fatherhood in the new crime comedy, "Loosies."

Facinelli also makes his feature screenwriting debut with the film, which sports a pretty amazing cast. We were already impressed with seeing the likes of Michael Madsen, William Forsythe and even Vincent Gallo in the trailer, but the late appearance of Joe Pantoliano tops them all (of course).

The plot starts off a little like "Miami Blues" (remember that one?), with Facinelli stealing Madsen's badge and going on a cop-impersonation spree (however, as far as we can tell, Madsen doesn't have his fake teeth stolen as well, unlike poor Fred Ward in "Blues"). And then one of Facinelli's one-night stands (Jaimie Alexander) shows up and things get a bit more complicated...

And, really, we think this might the first time any piece of cinematic marketing material has ever used the phrase, "From the Director of 'American Buffalo'" (which is Michael Corrente, by the way).

Check out the trailer below, and thanks to Team Twilight for the find. "Loosies" is still looking to lock down a release date in 2011, though it's more than likely that first up will be Peter Facinelli reprising his role as Dr. Cullen in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon - Part 1," opening Nov. 18.
