Few filmmakers are as eloquent about silence, about the spaces between sentences, about delicate character interludes when souls communicate without a word being exchanged, as Stanley Tucci. "The moments in between the moments, those are the most interesting," the 39-year-old actor-director says in general and about his graceful and intelligent new film, "Joe Gould's Secret," premiering today at the Sundance Film Festival.

Actress Allison Janney sits at a swellegant Art Deco bar, her hair a dark curtain of Louise Brooks bangs above her eyes. Then she begins to sexually harass a swizzle stick with her tongue. But it's not her swizzle sizzle that has people behind the camera laughing: It's the shameless hootchie-coo her eyes and eyebrows are dancing as accompaniment. As she completes her optical tango with a flourish, director Stanley Tucci calls "Cut!"

As deliciously prepared as the dishes it features, this 1996 film is a lyric to the love of food, family and persuasive acting. Second, the restaurant's maitre d', is convincingly played by Stanley Tucci (left), who originated the project. Secondo and his older brother, Primo (Tony Shalhoub, right), have emigrated from Italy determined to make a success of the restaurant business in America. And so it goes (Showtime Tuesday at 8 p.m.).

To fully enjoy "The Impostors," writer-director-star Stanley Tucci's homage to early slapstick movie farce, one has to be in a particularly open, perhaps even unhinged, mood. You can't simply appreciate its encomiums to the Marx Brothers, the Three Stooges and Laurel & Hardy; you have to accept those teams as if they had been collectively reincarnated in the persons of Tucci and his co-star, Oliver Platt.

Stanley Tucci has moved easily between the worlds of mainstream Hollywood movies -- "The Devil Wears Prada," "Swing Vote" -- and independent filmmaking -- directing "Big Night," "The Imposters" and the recent "Blind Date." He's played his share of nice guys getting the short end of the stick as well as weasly lawyers, bureaucrats and bad husbands. But this year he's taken both ends of the character spectrum to new extremes in the summer's "Julie & Julia" and next month's "The Lovely Bones."

Actor Stanley Tucci is a stealth-bombing mischief-maker, an eye-twinkling scene-stealer. Often flying under the radar, he is precision in action and deadly ? or deadly funny if that's the mission ? when you least expect it. At the moment, he's the best thing about the disappointing bump and grind of "Burlesque," but then he's made a habit of being really good in really bad movies. Fortunately, he's also made a habit of being terrific in the great ones, a quality that Hollywood hasn't, in my mind, appreciated nearly enough.

Tucci to direct on Broadway Stanley Tucci's movie career has officially shifted into high gear. He is racking up acting nominations for his role in the film adaptation of "The Lovely Bones," including nods this week from the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild. But his next big job will be on stage. Or more accurately, behind the scenes. Tucci is set to direct the Broadway revival of "Lend Me a Tenor," which will open April 4 at the Music Box Theater in New York. The production will star frequent Tucci collaborator Tony Shalhoub as well as Anthony LaPaglia, Brooke Adams and Jan Maxwell.

What's Ian Holm's secret? The 68-year-old British actor admits he's "at an age where you think you're going to have to settle for little old cameos and being people's grandfathers and all that." And yet he's never been busier. "I'm a chameleon," he offers by way of possible explanation, during a conversation in Los Angeles about his nearly 50-year career in theater, film and television.
