Nick and Angela welcome good friend and chicest man alive, Stanley Tucci.
Stanley is an award-winning actor and filmmaker. Nominated for an Oscar, Golden Globe, and BAFTA for The Lovely Bones (2009). The list of his outstanding performances is endless, The Hunger Games, Burlesque, The Devil Wears Prada and Julie & Julia, alongside the inimitable Meryl Streep.
Stanley’s success is not limited to the big screen either as he has won an Emmy for his TV show Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy and recently starred in Inside Man on the BBC with David Tennant. His next role is as Clive Davis in the up-coming Whitney Houston biopic, I Wanna Dance with Somebody which is out at Christmas.
In this episode, Nick nervously serves Stanley a negroni and Angela prepares one of his favourite meals, spaghetti alle vongole, with clams, chilli, garlic, parsley and crispy pangritata (toasted breadcrumbs). Stanley is a man of taste, he talks Italian cooking with Angela, the importance of a leather shoe with Nick and casually drops names like Ryan Reynolds, Cher and Judi Dench into conversation.
Stanley Tucci is the epitome of a dream dinner party guest.
