Academy Award© nominee Stanley Tucci joins Americans for the Arts President and CEO Bob Lynch before Congress today, providing testimony to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on the Interior regarding 2013 appropriations for the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, and other programs.

Tucci dropped by our offices yesterday and talked to us about his arts background and what he hopes to convey to the Congressional Subcommittee.

He also spent a few moments discussing his role of Caeser Flickerman in the upcoming blockbuster The Hunger Games. Who do you think may have inspired his portrayal of Caeser in the movie? He gives that away at the end of the interview.

Visit ARTSblog tomorrow for more on the Congressional Hearing and for another short video with Stanley Tucci about The Hunger Games.

Tucci is pretty great, but that interviewer seems to have real star power!
