Stanley Tucci

What do you do after bringing the most successful film franchise in history to a satisfying end? If you're Harry Potter director David Yates, you apparently go on a quest for the Oscar love that eluded him during his magical run directing the kids of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Variety reports Yates will direct a film called Your Voice in My Head, an adaptation of writer Emma Forrest's memoir, with Potter star Emma Watson starring alongside Stanley Tucci. Because of the film's emotional content, there is already awards discussion surrounding this movie, which is hoping for release sometime in 2013. Read on!

Forrest's story is pretty incredible, as it chronicles the crumbling of her relationship with a nationally respected journalist, her subsequent suicide attempt, and the hope bestowed in her by a terminally ill psychiatrist. That role is apparently the juicy one, with "Best Actor nomination" written all over it. George Clooney was apparently interested at one point, but Tucci ultimately ended up locking down the part.

The movie is still waiting on an official greenlight, but I'd wager now that the film has a cast, Warner Bros. will toss their backing behind this project because they're generally a studio that likes to support filmmakers that make them boatloads of money. (See: Nolan, Chris and Affleck, Ben.) I haven't seen much of Yates' other work outside of the Potter franchise, but those films run the gamut of emotions and I think he's proven he can handle smaller, character-driven moments just as effectively as huge action set pieces.

Oscar bait? Maybe. It sounds good though, Yates is a fine director.

 Tucci is always good.

Maybe its just me but I was Blown Away by his Performance in The Lovely Bones! Plus he always plays a Good Gay Guy which kind of scares me a little!

A lot of straight actors play Gay well, just like a lot of gay actors play straight well...but Tucci does it on a whole different level of awesomeness.

Oh ya I know and Plus hes getting married soon I believe! Now Nathan Lane he must be Gay! Not that there's anything wrong with that!

 George Clooney, for instance, is totally gay, and yet plays straight men very well.

@N Nathan Lane is a comedic genius.

Xerxexx on Mar 28, 2012


Well either that or he is truly Gay and Hopes everyone will just assume hes acting when in reality hes not acting at all!!! He is Pretty Awesome though with all Humor set aside but I would not be surprised if he was Gay!!! Just saying!

Nathan Lane is truly gay, From wiki: "A reporter once asked Lane if he was gay; he replied, "I'm 40, single and work a lot in the musical theater. You do the math." When he told his mother he was gay, she replied, "I'd rather you were dead," to which he replied, "I knew you'd understand."

Thank you for the Nathan Lane info I did not know all of that!

 You're welcome.

What odds if he's gay or not; it shouldn't even been discussed. He's an amazing actor and can play any part with subtle ease. Case in point the part of Caeser Flickerman in The Hunger Games.

 Tucci is an amazing and extremely talented actor, good in nearly everything he stars in. Any film with Tucci is basically a must see...even "The Core" is a great Tucci movie.

Xerxexx on Mar 28, 2012


Nah I was just messing Tucci is one of my Favorite actors and I have the Utt most Respect for him! And like you said he can take any small role and turn it AMAZING!!! And you are totally right even if he was it doesnt matter! He deserves me Lead roles like these!

More not me sorry

Already awards discussion and the film is barely in pre-production?? What a joke.

If you're interested in seeing any of David Yates' work outside of Harry Potter, definitely check out his mini-series State of Play from the early 2000s.  It was pretty brilliant.

..or 'sex traffic' which was pretty traumatic.
