Peter Facinelli has revealed that he is "stoked" to have secured former American Idol contestant Paul McDonald for work on the soundtrack to his upcoming independent film Loosies.

The Twilight actor - who wrote, produced and stars in the project - told MTV News that his co-star and McDonald's girlfriend Nikki Reed made the collaboration possible when she recommended the singer's talents.

"I was telling Nikki I was looking for music for my movie, and she said, 'You should look through Paul's stuff''," Facinelli explained. "She was a big fan of his, I heard, and I thought it really worked for my movie, so I played some tracks over it, where we had temp tracks, and it just all worked. So I reached out to Paul, I sent him the movie, and he enjoyed it a lot, and he said he wanted to be a part of it, which I was stoked [about]."

He went on to add that he was drawn to McDonald's originality and plans to use several tracks recorded by his former band The Grand Magnolias for Loosies.

"I heard him on American Idol and I thought he was great, but when I heard the band, it's very distinct and has a voice of its own, and I like the originality of it," Facinelli said.

He plans to finish editing the film in the next few months before shopping it to distributors in the hopes of securing a theatrical release.
