Peter Facinelli is proving his action man credentials - he's reportedly signed up to star as a champion boxer on the big screen.
The Twilight actor is set to portray former IBF World Lightweight Champion Vinny Pazienza, according to Hollywood Life.
The boxer stunned doctors by returning to the ring just three months after a near-fatal car crash in the 1990s.
The movie is set to start shooting next year (11).
