Stanley Tucci Cast in The Lovely Bones

Yes, I know I've been paying a tremendous amount of attention to any and all news regarding Peter Jackson's adaptation of The Lovely Bones, but as far as book-to-movie projects go, this one is pretty important to me. So, here's the latest in the long string of casting news: Stanley Tucci is in negotiations to play killer George Harvey in the movie, says Hollywood Reporter.

When I was reading the book, I envisioned someone a little more decrepit, someone much closer to Jackie Earle Haley (who played creepy pedophile Ronnie McGorvey in Little Children). However, Tucci often has a commanding and intimidating presence onscreen (he played Nigel in The Devil Wears Prada, among others), and I can easily see him being super scary. What do you think about this latest bit of Lovely Bones news?

My choice for George would have been Phillip Seymour Hoffman, but I think that Tucci will do well, he's just a tad more outwardly creepy than PSH.

i pictured this character as a heavy set person, but i agree tucci has big "presence" and is very good in any part he does. sounds good.

Oh my gosh, yes. I pictured George Harvey a little more gaunt and creepy, but a little makeup will do him up perfectly.

i feel like it might work, but i also thought someone more cryptic and odd would be cast. i feel like an unknown might have even worked well. tucci is a really good actor, so im excited to see how he'lll do.

Ooh, good choice. I wouldn't of thought of him being cast at all, but I can really see it working.

He's great in everything. Kevin Spacey would have been a good choice, too. But again I say I hated this depressing book and don't plan to see the movie. I just can't sit through a flick narrated by a dead, raped teen.

I think he does very well to become the character he's playing; this sounds like perfect casting to me.

I think this works. It's not your typical bad guy but Stanley has the chops to pull it off. I'm very impressed with the castings for this movie so far.
