For those of you who don't recognize him, that's Stanley Tucci, one of my favorite actors. I adore him in everything - he's so quirky, fresh, and hilarious, and he always manages to capture my heart. And his chemistry with Meryl Streep is off the charts. Anyone who can steal a scene from the phenomenally talented Ms. Streep is just fine in my book.
This particular celebrity sighting seemed very apropos considering our Hunger Games discussion from last week (which was amazing - I loved all of your insightful comments and finally had time to respond to them all!). I cannot wait to see Mr. Tucci transformed into the delightful Caesar Flickerman this Friday. Do we all have our tickets?
The actual story of how I saw Mr. Tucci is a little boring. I was doing a late-afternoon FedEx run when I passed by this cute little French bakery right around the corner from my office. I glanced over and saw a man who looked oddly similar to Stanley Tucci. I think my actual thought process went a little something like this: "Wow, that guy looks an awful lot like Stanley Tucci! I mean, he's got the bald head, the peppered beard, the awesome round glasses. They look so similar. Oh wait - that is Stanley Tucci!" When I passed him again on my way back to the office, I snuck another peek just to be sure. And yes, it was definitely Stanley Tucci. Day = made.
