Cool Dad Job: Movie Star
Latest Cool Dad Accomplishment: Nothing really. He’s just the best.
This May, Stanley Tucci was on the receiving end of many adoring Internet pieces after he posted a video of himself, clad in a well-fitting polo shirt and trademark horn rims, making a Negroni. Then, in June, Tucci, chronicling a day in his life for The Atlantic’s Lockdown Diaries series, described Peppa Pig as “irritating animated swine,” discussed getting kicked in the groin by his kids, and provided an excellent recipe for Pasta Alla Norma. These sorts of things are par for the course for Tucci, who has made a career of playing charming husbands, charming villains, charming creative directors, charming physicists, and charming restaurateurs. He’s the guy all bald men wish to be and probably cooler than any of us can fathom. Don’t take it from us, take it from Captain America himself, Chris Evans, who wrote in response to Tucci’s Negroni video: “However cool, fun, witty, and charming you think he is, double it and you’re halfway there.”
