‘Twilight’s’ Peter Facinelli likes to ‘bite’ people … with his phone.

Even when he isn’t starring as Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the epic “Twilight” saga Peter Facinelli plays with vampires. He recently launched Vampire Transformer, an iPhone application (it’s also compatible with the iPod touch) that allows users to morph anyone into a vampire with the simple touch of their finger.  If only Bella Swan knew there was a simpler way to transform — one that didn’t require a punctured epidermis and a life without a soul

“I’m literally addicted to it,” said Facinelli, minutes before taking part in a skit on the set of G4TV. “Everybody I come in contact with I’m like ‘let me transform you; let me bite you.’”

He’s currently filming the second season of Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie”—where he plays Dr. Fitch Cooper—in New York so his frequent plane hopping between coasts provides ample opportunities to hone his skills.

“This is what I spend my days doing,” he said, while browsing through his vampire gallery featuring images of his “bitten” daughters and wife. “While I’m waiting to board a plane. When I’m in between takes.  Anytime I have a free moment.”

The only “Twilight” co-star he’s been able to bite is Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett in the series. His “Nurse Jackie” co-stars? They’ve all been bitten…well, almost all.

“I haven’t gotten Edie [Falco] yet,” he realized.  “She’s the one cast member I haven’t bitten. I’ll have to change that.”
