THE HOAX

Always keeping busy and not one to sit still for too long, STANLEY TUCCI always has something brewing. Most recently he starred in the Golden Globe nominated Film THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA alongside Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway as well as the Sundance hit LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN, with Josh Hartnett, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Lucy Liu. In 2005 on top of teaching a class at Columbia University he completed the filming of the BBC production FOUR LAST SONGS, which was shot 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.

Tucci remained plenty active in 2004, taking on five films: Fox Animation's feature, ROBOTS, in which he voiced the Herb Copperbottom character; the acclaimed HBO film THE LIFE AND DEATH OF PETER SELLERS, in which he played the role of renowned director Stanley Kubrick; the romantic comedy SHALL WE DANCE with Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez and the James Redford film SPIN, with Dana Delany and Ruben Blades. Tucci also worked alongside Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg's THE TERMINAL, released in June 2004.

In 2002 Tucci received critical acclaim for his work in Sam Mendes' ROAD TO PERDITION, costarring Tom Hanks, Jude Law and Paul Newman. Stanley can also be seen in the ever-popular Disney comedy BIG TROUBLE, co-starring Tim Allen, Rene Russo, Omar Epps, Janeane Garofolo and Jason Lee, among others. The Barry Sonnenfeld-directed film, about the lives of several Miami citizens intersecting with hilarious and dangerous results, opened in April 2002. Tucci further graced screens in SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK, written and directed by Edward Burns and starring Heather Graham and Brittany Murphy and 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 won a Golden Globe and earned an Emmy nomination in his portrayal of Lt. Colonel Adolf Eichmann. He also received a Golden Globe, as well as an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Walter Winchell, a founder of American gossip, in the HBO original film, WINCHELL. His performance as the fast-talking tattler, whose exposure of secrets and scandals turned political, left audiences and critics alike singing his praises. WINCHELL, directed by Paul Mazursky, provided Tucci with one of the juiciest roles of his diverse career.

Tucci is not only an accomplished and gifted actor, he is also 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. 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, and Independent Spirit Award, The Critics Prize at the 1996 Deauville Film Festival and honors from the New York Film Critics and the Boston Society of Film Critics. Tucci's second project, THE IMPOSTERS, a film that he wrote, directed, coproduced and in which he starred, was an Official Selection at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival. The 1930's farce starred Tucci and Oliver Platt as a pair of out-of-work actors who find themselves aboard a cruise ship with Steve Buscemi, Billy Connolly, Alfred Molina, Lili Taylor and Hope Davis as passengers.

Tucci's previous film credits include Woody Allen's DECONSTRUCTING HARRY, William Shakespeare's A MID SUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, THE ALARMIST, A LIFE LESS ORDINARY, THE DAYTRIPPERS, KISS OF DEATH, MRS. PARKER AND THE VICIOUS CIRCLE, IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU
