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

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 31st 2011 4:30PM
'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.

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

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 13th 2011 10:50PM
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."

Steve Buscemi and Stanley Tucci Team Up on Two New Shows

by Scott Harris, posted Oct 21st 2009 11:40AM
Stanley Tucci and Steve Buscemi 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: The Chicago Way (season finale)

by Richard Keller, posted May 16th 2008 9:38AM

Steve Buscemi on ER(S14E19) Now, let the speculation begin!

Did you really think that ER would end its fourteenth season with everything all honky-dory at County General? You haven't watched it recently, have you? Fact is, the season-ender for the last few years has been some sort of cliffhanger. Last season the fate of Neela was unknown. The year before it was Abby and Luka. A few years before that the fates of Pratt and Jing-Mei were undecided.

Now we have two (or three, or four) characters to consider as potential victims. But, who will be the lucky -- or in this case, unlucky -- one who will end up as a patient in their very own Emergency Room when season 15 of ER begins? Let's take a look at the candidates. Oh, by the way, spoilers ahead if you didn't watch the last three minutes of the episode.

No real surprises at the technical Emmy Awards

by Paul Goebel, posted Sep 9th 2007 5:30PM

The least entertaining duet in historyThis past Saturday, the 59th Annual Creative Emmy Awards were given out and aside from a few exceptions, the winners were no surprise.

The biggest event of the night came when American Idol won its first Emmy ever for "Outstanding Technical Direction." The spectacular "Idol Gives Back" episode was responsible for the Emmy, specifically the duet between Celine Dion and the late Elvis Presley. The honor is of particular interest because it gives AI a break in the second biggest losing streak in Emmy history, 22 losses. The record of 25 nominations without a win is still held by Newhart.

ER: Sea Change

by Richard Keller, posted May 11th 2007 9:41AM

Stanley Tucci(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?

Is Stanley Tucci going to replace Goran Visnjic?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 16th 2007 3:28PM

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.

Remaining episodes of 3 lbs on Innertube

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 14th 2006 3:34PM
stanley tucci; 3 lbsFor 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!]

3 Lbs is canceled

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 30th 2006 7:22AM
stanley tucci; 3 lbsNo official word from CBS yet, but Broadcasting & Cable reports that it's all over for 3 lbs after only three airings. CBS launched the show, which many considered a rip-off of House, after it canceled Smith. The network actually hoped that House would provide some ratings for the show in the same way that Grey's Anatomy viewers have flipped over to ER on NBC. No such luck, though. 3 lbs actually did worse than its predecessor. Ratings for 3 lbs were 16% lower than Smith. Ouch!

I actually liked the premiere of 3 lbs, but I never remembered to watch the subsequent episodes. Starting next week, CBS will fill the 10 pm Tuesday time slot with reruns of one of its many procedural dramas.

How House can help 3 lbs

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 15th 2006 10:36AM
houseCBS' new medical drama, 3 lbs, is looking for some ratings help from House. How is that possible since they're on different networks and are essentially the same show? It worked for ER. When ABC moved Grey's Anatomy to the 9 pm timeslot on Thursdays this fall, it unwittingly revived ER's ratings. Nielsen statistics show 32% of Grey's Anatomy viewers are switching over to NBC at 10 pm.

CBS is hoping for the same kind of success with 3 lbs, a drama about a rude-but-brilliant brain surgeon that is being called a rip-off of House (something that completely escaped me in my early review because I don't watch House). Even CBS admits 3 lbs is similar to House... but the network uses the word "compatible" to describe the similarities. CBS says it hopes The Unit provides a bunch of viewers, but it doesn't hurt that Fox's programming ends at ten, which is when 3 lbs begins.

3 Lbs -- an early look

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 9th 2006 8:08AM
stanley tucci
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!

Why was Waterfront really axed?

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 25th 2006 5:44PM

Joe PantolianoJoe Pantoliano is not letting the canceled CBS drama Waterfront die an anonymous death.

Pantoliano and other members of the Waterfront crew, including the girl who plays his daughter on the show, showed up at the Tazza Cafe in Providence, RI the other night to show two episodes of the series for the crowd. The show was about the mayor of Providence and a lot of it was filmed on location. CBS pulled the series without even showing a single episode, saying it was too expensive and that there were creative differences.

But Pantoliano says its more than that, and uses as an example CBS' decision to put 3 Lbs in the slot vacated by the now-canceled Smith. 3 Lbs is a Paramount show. Paramount is owned by the same company that owns CBS, Viacom. Waterfront is a Warner Brothers show, and Pantoliano thinks that CBS wants to air one of their own shows instead of another show.

He wants to finish the episodes they were working on and show them to the public and see if they like it or not.

NBC and CBS bring in the replacements

by Brett Love, posted Oct 12th 2006 3:32PM
Stanley TucciWith 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.

Monk: Mr. Monk and the Actor

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 7th 2006 9:05PM

monk(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 clean with a sanitary wipe. He does almost lose it when he gets glitter on his suit, though.
