Stanley Tucci, 'The Graham Norton Show'The role of Nigel in 'The Devil Wears Prada' ultimately went to Stanley Tucci, but it was one of the last roles cast. And he faced off against one of his toughest competitors on 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America).

It turns out Graham Norton himself was also up for the role of the Art Director.

"I put the work in," Norton said. "I have spent my life preparing!"

"I was probably the last actor in Christendom that they went to," Tucci said, making things even more awkward. "They were shooting the movie already. They had tried to cast everyone and anyone, except me."

"You're not making it better, Stanley," Norton said. But there really isn't a way to make a moment like that less awkward. At least Norton can take solace in the fact that he's doing just fine in his career without 'Prada.'
