Interview with Stanley Tucci (The Lovely Bones)
The Lovely Bones is based on the best-selling novel of the same name written by Alice Sebold. Directed by Peter Jackson, it stars Saoirse Ronan (Atonement) as protagonist Susie Salmon, along with Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz as her parents, Jack and Abigail Salmon. Set in the early '70s, the story centers around 14-year-old Susie, who is murdered by a neighbor, George Harvey (Stanley Tucci), a serial killer of young girls and women. She finds herself in 'the in-between,' a Heaven-like place, observing her family as they grieve for her. She also watches her killer who, having covered his tracks successfully, is preparing to murder again. Susie struggles to balance her desire for vengeance on Harvey and her desire to have her family recover from their loss.
Stanley Tucci is almost unrecognizable in the role of George Harvey. It is a huge departure for the actor, which may just land him an Oscar® nomination.
Tribute’s Bonnie Laufer spoke with Tucci in Los Angeles about what it was like for him to play such a creepy character and how, being a father, it especially affected him.
