Stanley Tucci and Nora Ephron Talk About 'Julie & Julia' in This Exclusive 'Vine Talk' Clip

'Vine Talk'When you get to a certain age, you notice a few things about yourself. For instance, your desire to do keg stands or drink Bud Light out of a funnel has given way to more sophisticated pursuits. One day you're at a frat party, and the next you're at a table, tasting different wines with your "couple" friends.

It's a scary thought, to be sure, especially if the most complex wine you drink is Two Buck Chuck. But you do it because it feels good, like you're finally the grown-up things you saw your parents do as a kid.

The new public television series 'Vine Talk,' which debuts in April, takes that feeling and brings it up a notch. Instead of your wife's friend and her husband, you get to sit in on actor Stanley Tucci and friends discussing wines, the regions where the grapes are grown, and anything else that comes to mind.

In the exclusive clip below, Tucci talks with Norah Ephron about a particular food-related nirvana they experienced while shooting the movie 'Julie & Julia'; Ephron directed and Tucci played Julia Child's loyal husband Paul. Joining them around the table is S. Epatha Merkerson of 'Law & Order,' John Lithgow -- who I can attest is a fun guy to talk to -- and chef Jonathon Waxman of 'Top Chef Masters.'

Other episodes will feature stars like Julianne Moore and Patricia Clarkson, as well as huge food stars as 'Top Chef''s Gail Simmons and renowned chef Daniel Boulud.

So, watch the clip below and feel like an adult for a second. Don't worry -- the keg will still be there for you if you need it.
