Early life

Tucci, an Italian American, [ [ Inside Film Online - Staley Tucci Breaks Out ] ] [ [ Fametracker :: 2 Stars 1 Slot :: Battle of the Swarthy Second Fiddles :: Stanley Tucci vs. Tony Shalhoub ] ] [ [ Stanley Tucci - Profile, Latest News and Related Articles ] ] was born in Peekskill, New York, the son of Joan (née Tropiano), a retired secretary and writer, and Stanley Tucci, Sr., a retired high school art teacher. [ at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua, New York. Joan Tropiano Tucci and Gianni Scappin with Mimi Shanley Taft, "Cucina & Famiglia: Two Italian Families Share Their Stories, Recipes, and Traditions", New York: William Morrow, 1999, ISBN 0-688-15902-8] [ [ Stanley Tucci Biography (1960-) ] ] His sister is actress Christine Tucci, and his cousin is the screenwriter Joseph Tropiano. He grew up in Katonah, New York and attended John Jay High School. Stan played primarily on the John Jay soccer team and enjoyed playing a couple of years on the John Jay baseball team, however, his main interest lay mainly in the school's drama club, where he and fellow actor and high school buddy, Campbell Scott, son of the late, great actor George C. Scott, gave well-received performances at many of John Jay's drama club productions. Tucci attended Purchase College, a State University of New York and completed his B.A. degree after four years in their well known Conservatory of Theatre Arts and Film division.


Tucci made his Broadway debut in "The Queen and the Rebels" on 30 September 1982. His film debut was in "Prizzi's Honor" (1985). Tucci is known for his work in films such as "Kiss of Death", "Road to Perdition", and "Big Night", and in the television series "Murder One" as the mysterious Richard Cross. "Big Night" (1996), which he co-wrote with his cousin Joseph Tropiano, starred in, and co-directed with Campbell Scott, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The film also featured his sister Christine and mother, who wrote a cookbook for the film. It won him and Tropiano the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay.

He has been nominated twice for Golden Globes, and won both times — for his title role in "Winchell" (1998), and for his supporting role as Adolph Eichmann in "Conspiracy" (2001), both for HBO films. He also received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for "Winchell". He was nominated for Broadway's Tony Award as Best Actor in a Play for his role as Johnny in the 2002 revival of Terrence McNally's "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune".

In July 2006, Tucci made an appearance on the USA Network TV series "Monk", in a performance that earned him a 2007 Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor - Comedy Series. Tucci's latest TV series, the medical drama "3 lbs.", debuted on CBS in the 10:00 p.m. EDT time slot on November 14, 2006. It was cancelled on November 30, 2006 due to low ratings. Tucci is the voice of Cingular Wireless/AT&T. He can be heard as the voice over in their "Raising the Bar" campaign. In 2007, Tucci had a recurring role in medical drama "ER". In 2009, Peter Jackson's adaptation of "The Lovely Bones" will hit the cinemas, in which Tucci portrays George Harvey, the murderer of the lead character (portrayed by Saoirse Ronan).

Tucci lives in Westchester County, New York with his wife, Kate, and their three children, twins Isabel and Nicolo, and Camilla.
