STANLEY TUCCI was a delight in The Devil Wears Prada and I can safely say his performance as Jack Warner in Feud is another tour de force.
It’s a cameo role, in some ways, which probably shouldn’t be described as a tour de force but you feel that only Tucci could make the monster bearable!
“You want to be true to the piece, number one, and you want to be true to him,” Tucci says. “Being true to him is just being this outwardly very charming, fast-talking, well-dressed fella — and then behind the scenes he’s a ruthless misogynist.”
The Los Angeles Times celebrates his performance with the headline, “As a misogynist studio head in ‘Feud,’ Stanley Tucci spotlights a sexist Hollywood.”
Tucci has an extraordinary gift. As the camp, perfectionist, company-man, top stylist in ‘Devil‘ he transforms into a caring, mentoring friend to the bullied Andrea (Andy) Sachs (Anne Hathaway). In Feud: Bette and Joan, he has a searing humanity, not shaken off course even through a lens of towering greed and control. It’s quite wondrous.
I watched all eight episodes yesterday!
