THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA

Always keeping busy and not one to sit still for too long, STANLEY TUCCI (Nigel) always has something brewing. He has just recently completed filming the BBC production of "Four Last Songs,” which started shooting in mid-June on the beautiful Spanish island of Majorca. The comedic drama is written and directed by Francesca Joseph, and encompasses a motley collection of characters seeking musical redemption. The ensemble cast includes Rhys Ifans, Hugh Bonneville, Jena Malone, Jessica Stevenson, Emmanuelle Seigner, Marisa Paredes, Karl Johnson, and Virgile Branly.

Tucci has remained plenty active since 2004, taking on roles in five different films. The most recent, Fox Animation's feature, "Robots,” was released in March 2005. In it, Tucci offered his voice for the Herb Copperbottom character. "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers,” in which he played the role of renowned director Stanley Kubrick, premiered on HBO in December of 2004. The Stephen Hopkins drama starred Stephen Gry, John Lithgow and Miriam Margolys and tied for the most Emmy nominations with 16 bids. Tucci starred opposite Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez in the romantic comedy "Shall We Dance,” which opened in October 2004 and was directed by Peter Chelsom. Also released in October was the James Redford film "Spin,” with Dana Delany and Ruben Blades. The story is based on an orphaned boy raised by a Hispanic family in the 1950's. Tucci also worked alongside Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg's "The Terminal,” released in June 2004. The story is about an Eastern European immigrant (Hanks) who becomes a resident of a New York airport terminal when a war breaks out and erases his country from the map, voiding his passport.

In 2002 Tucci received critical acclaim for his work in Fox and DreamWorks' "Road to Perdition,” co-starring Tom Hanks, Jude Law and Paul Newman. The Sam Mendes directed film, about a hit man who takes things personally after his wife and son are murdered, was released in theaters in July 2002. Stanley can also be seen in the ever-popular Disney comedy "Big Trouble,” co-starring Tim Allen, Rene Russo, Omar Epps, Janeane Garofalo and Jason Lee, among others. The Barry Sonnenfeld-directed film, about the lives of several Miami denizens intersecting with hilarious and dangerous results, opened in April 2002.

Tucci also graced screens in Paramount Classics' "Sidewalks of New York,” written and directed by Edward Burns and starring Heather Graham and Brittany Murphy and Sony's "America's Sweethearts,” opposite Julia Roberts, John Cusack, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Billy Crystal. He also appeared alongside Kenneth Branagh and Colin Firth in the highly acclaimed HBO drama, "Conspiracy,” a film for which Tucci earned both Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actor in a Made-for-TV movie or Miniseries.

Tucci's multiple talents have led to a very diverse career. Not only an accomplished and gifted actor, he is a writer, director and producer. His most recent directorial effort was USA Films' "Joe Gould's Secret,” which starred Ian Holm as bohemian writer ‘Joe Gould' and Tucci as ‘Joseph Mitchell,' the famed writer for The New Yorker. The film, set in New York's Greenwich Village in the 1940s, tells the story of the strange meeting and long lasting friendship between Gould and Mitchell, as well as the stories Mitchell wrote about Gould and his life.

"Big Night,” Tucci's first effort as co-director, co-screenwriter and actor on the same film, earned him numerous accolades, including the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival, a recognition of Excellence by the National Board of Review, an Independent Spirit Award, The Critics Prize at the 1996 Deauville Film Festival and honors from the New York Film Critics and the Society of Film Critics.
