Stanley Tucci on ‘Captain America’: ‘There’s a real power to it’ Stanley Tucci spilled some beans on his upcoming role as Dr. Abraham Erskine in next summer’s highly anticipated Marvel film “Captain America: The First Avenger.”

Speaking with MTV News, Tucci says that his character is a “combination of both” mad doctor and dutiful scientist. Tucci’s Erskine develops the serum which turns Steve Rogers from a weakling into the muscle-bound Captain America.

“[Director] Joe Johnston is a wonderful guy and I love the way he’s shooting it, it’s really interesting, it’s beautiful-looking,” Tucci said in his interview with MTV News, “There’s a real power to it and the design is stunning.”

“So much fun,” Tucci added, “I have to go back and … finish it in October but I was there for a few weeks in … end of July, August. It was great; a great experience.”

Above all, Tucci relished his set time with the film’s talented cast: “Chris [Evans, who plays Captain America] is great, he’s a wonderful guy,” Tucci said. “Dominic [Cooper] and Hayley [Atwell] and Tommy Lee Jones – it’s great people.”

Tucci’s next movie is the Screen Gems/Sony high school comedy “Easy A.”
