Stanley Tucci has had his ups and downs this year, he enjoyed critical favored roles in both The Lovely Bones and Julie & Julia. Although, not all has been good for the versatile actor, whose wife died last April after a fight with breast cancer.
Tucci plays the main villain in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of the Alice Sebold novel, The Lovely Bones. The film tells the story of teenage Susie Salmon who is murdered by unassuming neighbor George Harvey. Susie narrates the film while watching from above in her own vision of the entry to heaven. Tucci brilliantly places the creepy Harvey as a sociopath who moves from to town killing young girls.
