Early life and education edit

Tucci was born on November 11, 1960, in Peekskill, New York,[5] and grew up in nearby Katonah, New York.[6] His parents, Joan (née Tropiano), a secretary and writer, and Stanley Tucci Sr.[6][7] an art teacher at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua, New York,[8] both of Italian descent, have roots in the town of Marzi in Calabria, South Italy.[9][10] His maternal great-grandmother, Angela Albanese, was from Calabria and her surname indicates that she was of Arbëreshë descent.[11][12] Tucci is the oldest of three children,[6] including his sister, actress Christine Tucci.[citation needed] Screenwriter Joseph Tropiano is a cousin.[13] During the early 1970s, the family spent a year living in Florence, Italy.[10]

He attended John Jay High School,[6] where he played on the soccer and baseball teams, although his main interest lay in the school's drama club, where he and fellow actor and high school friend, Campbell Scott, son of actors George C. Scott and Colleen Dewhurst, gave well-received performances at many of John Jay's drama club productions. Tucci then attended State University of New York at Purchase, where he majored in acting and graduated in 1982.[6] Among his classmates at SUNY Purchase was fellow acting student Ving Rhames. It was Tucci who gave Rhames, born Irving, the Ving nickname by which he is known.[14]

"Firth and Tucci are such reliable stalwarts that we tend not to regard their presence too closely in films these days: Almost invariably, they fulfill our expectations of their refined gravitas. But there's something lovely and surprising in what they bring out of each other here, as they complement and reflect each other's curtness, evasiveness and occasional spillages of tenderness in the way that long-term couples do."[39]

In 2021, Tucci hosted the culinary travel series, Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, a six-part original CNN series following the actor on a food tour of Italy.[40][41] The series received two Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including one for Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series, and was renewed for a second season set to air in 2022.[42] Caroline Framke of Variety praised the series writing, "It’s exactly the picturesque scenario you might expect and want from a travel series hosted by Tucci, an extraordinarily charming presence who knows and loves Italian food".[43]
