Stanley Tucci Got His Role in 'The Devil Wears Prada' Over Graham Norton (VIDEO)

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."...

Is Stanley Tucci going to replace Goran Visnjic?

Casting 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. [via TV Tattle]...

Steve Buscemi and Stanley Tucci Team Up on Two New Shows

The world of animation is about to get a little more dangerous: Mr. Pink is coming to town. Steve Buscemi, who is best known for such intense indie film roles as Mr. Pink in 'Resevoir Dogs', has signed on to provide one of the voices in the upcoming TBS animated comedy 'Good and Evel.' According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will also star Stanley Tucci and follow the lives of two brothers reconnecting after very different upbringings. The two actors head up Olive Productions, which is developing the concept by 'The Colbert Report' writer Glenn Eichler....

ER: Sea Change

(S13E22) And now, please welcome Stanley Tucci to the cast of ER. As we reported to you back in March, Tucci was cast as Dr. Kevin Moretti, an ICU clinical director who becomes the new ER chief of staff after Luka Kovac decides to step down (due to the fact that Goran Visnjic , who portrays Kovac, is leaving the show). Moretti officially takes over the ER next week. In this week's episode we get to meet the man and find out a little about him. Let's analyze Kevin Moretti for a bit, shall we?...

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

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....

3 Lbs -- an early look

I was pleasantly surprised by 3 lbs, a medical drama that is making an early appearance on CBS since Smith failed earlier this fall. I've seen a few promos for it on CBS lately and they really don't do it justice-- which could spell disaster for this outstanding show. The title, by the way, refers to the weight of a human brain. 3 lbs stars Stanley Tucci, who was most recently seen in The Devil Wears Prada, and Mark Feuerstein, last seen in this Lazy Sunday spoof and also on Good Morning, Miami (3 lbs is far better for him). Feuerstein plays Dr. Jonathan Singer, a brain surgeon who likes to get to know the souls of his patients before he operates on their brains. Tucci plays Dr. Doug Hanson, a brilliant neurosurgeon who is cold as ice toward his patients and everyone around him. Let me say this right off the top: the casting is perfect!...

NBC and CBS bring in the replacements

With Kidnapped shuffled to a new night to finish out its run, and Smith pulled from the schedule completely, NBC and CBS have a couple slots to fill. The Emmy-winning Medium will return to NBC for its third season sometime in mid November, taking over the Wednesday at 10PM slot. CBS will fill Tuesday at 10PM with 3 Lbs starting on November 14th. 3 Lbs is about the relationship between a brilliant, but arrogant, neurosurgeon, and the rising star that works for him. Originally it was to star Dylan McDermott, but now will feature Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada, Murder One) and Mark Feuerstein (West Wing, Good Morning Miami). I'm not sure about Feuerstein in this role, we'll have to wait and see, but I'll give anything with Stanley Tucci in it a look. This character sounds like he could have a little Richard Cross in him, which would be a good thing. ...

Remaining episodes of 3 lbs on Innertube

For the very few of you who watched 3 lbs, CBS's short-lived rip-off of House, the remaining three episodes are now available on the network's online video channel, Innertube. 3 lbs was pulled from the air after only three episodes. Starring Stanley Tucci and that guy from Good Morning, Miami, CBS had hoped that the medical drama would pull in the House crowd from Fox. After all, viewers were switching from Grey's Anatomy to ER. But the gamble didn't work. The remaining X episodes are now on Innertube. As a sidenote, the remaining episodes of Smith are no longer on Innertube. The heist drama, starring Ray Liotta, preceded 3 lbs in the Tuesday night at 10 pm slot. Three episodes of Smith made air before the network yanked it. [Thanks, Mike!]...

USA airing Monk marathon tomorrow

A brand new season of Monk kicks off on July 7 at 9 p.m., but before that you can catch a Fourth of July marathon which kicks off in the wee hours of the morning on July 4 and runs until 11 p.m. Now while all those losers are out burning their hands on charcoal grills and eating questionable potato salad you can rest comfortably in your home with the air conditioner on. Or, alternatively, you can tape all the episodes and actually get the heck out of the house and socialize with other human beings. You know, if you're into that kind of thing. The first episodes of the new season guest stars Stanley Tucci. I'll be covering the episodes for you once again, too. ...

Monk: Mr. Monk and the Actor

(S05E01) This episode of Monk reflects back to this episode from last season where Monk figured out how an astronaut managed to kill a woman, despite being in deep space at the time of the alleged suicide. The case was such a home run that Hollywood has decided to make a movie about it, and famous actor David Rushkin (Stanley Tucci) has been chosen to play Monk. Rushkin decides to follow Monk around as he helps investigators figure out how the same man could be involved in two crimes that seem to have no connection to one another: the murder of a woman in her apartment, and the murder of another man at a jewelry store. Monk becomes extremely awkward around the actor, and tries not to let his obsessive compulsive nature show through too much. So much of this show is dependent on Monk's subtle mannerisms, but he exaggerates them to an absurd degree as he tries to impress the actor who's playing him. He all but dances around the crime scene, and even shakes Rushkin's hand without cleaning his own hands...
