Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci share more in common than critical accolades and impressive resumes. Both actors enjoyed professional breakthroughs somewhat later in life, after struggling through their 20s and early 30s. Each credits the Steven Bochco series "Murder One" as a major turning point in their careers. And both share similar perspectives on their craft and the business -- not to mention a wicked sense of humor.Clarkson and Tucci have teamed up before in projects Tucci has co-written and directed, beginning with the 2000 film "Joe Gould's Secret." In 2007, the pair played a married couple estranged by tragedy who repeatedly pretend to meet for the first time in "Blind Date," inspired by a film from the late Dutch director Theo van Gogh. This month, the duo will reteam as a far more lighthearted couple in "Easy A," a smart new comedy from director Will Gluck and writer Bert V. Royal. »
One of the most noticeable things about Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci is that they’re both excellent at what they do. You might also realize that, while each has been working steadily since the mid-80s, you’ll be hard-pressed to find either as the leading lady or man in the movies they’ve done.
Such was the case until about two years ago, when they starred together in Blind Date, a loose remake of the 1996 Theo van Gogh film of the same name. Janna (Clarkson) and Don (Tucci, who also directs), trying to find their way back from the long-ago death of their daughter (who, somewhat strangely, provides narration), decide to go on a series of blind dates to figure out how or even if — they can mend their marriage. They switch off placing personal ads and meet up for date after date, pretending to be people they’re not. »
