NOTES

"I wanted to finally get a decent part for myself. I mean, if I'd been cast in enough good roles, I don't think I would have gotten around to making ['Big Night']" --Stanley Tucci to Empire, June 1997.

"I've made a lot of compromises in my career, but I had to do it. I knew certain jobs I was taking for political reasons. If I waited around for all the great parts in all the great movies to come my way, I would never work, ever, and I don't want to live that way." --Tucci to Los Angeles Times, September 15, 1997.

"The upside [of being a character actor] is you get to play a variety of roles. I suppose the downside is, it's very difficult being ethnic, Italian. People want you to always play the Italian gangster, and that's a little frustrating after a while. If it's well-written, it's okay, but all too often it's not. And in Hollywood, ideas of what's romantic, and who's romantic, don't often include my type." --Tucci quoted in Daily News, September 15, 1993.
