Throughout the 1980s he appeared in numerous other Broadway shows including The Misanthrope, Brighton Beach Memoirs, The Iceman Cometh (with Jason Robards), and Execution of Justice.  Tucci made his film debut with a small role in John Huston's Prizzi's Honor in 1985.

Among his equally distinguished television appearances are "The Equalizer,” "Wise Guy,” "thirtysomething,” "Equal Justice,” "Murder One,” "Bull,” "3 lbs.,” "Monk,” and "E.R.” He has starred as real-life figures in several acclaimed television movies including "Conspiracy” (as Adolf Eichmann) and HBO's Winchell (as Walter Winchell, directed by Paul Mazursky) and "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers” (as Stanley Kubrick).  

His impressive list of accolades includes two Emmy Awards (for "Winchell” and "Monk”) and three nominations; two Golden Globes (for "Conspiracy” and "Winchell”), and a SAG Award nomination (for "Winchell”).
