Is Stanley Tucci going to replace Goran Visnjic?

TucciCasting news from ER: Stanley Tucci, star of the very short-lived CBS drama 3 Lbs last year, will join the show later this year for a multi-episode stint.

He's going to play "a brilliant ICU turned ER chief," in just one of many big changes that are coming to the show. TV Guide wonders if this means that Goran Visnjic will be replaced, since it has been reported that Visnjic might not return next season (though producers are trying to get him to agree to star in a few episodes here and there).

This is interesting casting, going for an older guy instead of a resident hunk (sorry, nothing against Tucci's hunkiness). This guy deserves a weekly show. I remember a TV movie from years ago, a pilot for a series produced by Tom Selleck, that had Tucci as a detective. The show never made it, so I hope this works out.

I am a huge fan of Goran Visnjic! I am sorry to hear that he is planning to leave ER. If he does decide to leave the show, I will not be watching it anymore! I am sure ER will lose many of their viewers(especially female fans). Tell Goran to stay on ER for one more year! Besides, it will be the final season.

Eeew...Sorry to ruin the fun, but I can't stand Stanley Tucci - no matter what role he plays, everytime I see him on the screen I just think "Creepy Schmuck".

That sounds great.. i have been following ER for a long time and i thing the Luka's arc has drawn too a close, or it will soon.. I just hope it dosent end with him leaving Abby.. She has been through SOOO much over the years, so i thing that she deserves a happy ending!!
