Tucci stars as neurosurgeon Dr. Doug Hanson on the new CBS drama 3 Lbs. and says that even though hes been meaning to sit in on an actual brain surgery, he hasnt done any hands on research.
He admits: I keep saying Im going to, but I keep opting out because I know if I do, Ill be too squeamish.
Luckily for him, the shows creator, Peter Ocko, has opted to de-emphasize the blood and guts of brain surgery and prefers to, as he puts it, ...spend a great amount of time getting into the patients heads.
3 Lbs. debuts Tuesday night (Nov. 14).
