Stanley Tucci will soon have to wash out all of that blue.

The veteran character actor, who can currently be seen as flamboyant talk show host Caesar Flickerman in "The Hunger Games," has signed on to join "Harry Potter" alum Emma Watson in "Your Voice in My Head," according to Variety.

"Your Voice in My Head" is based on the memoirs of Emma Roberts, a candid account of her self-destructive behavior after the demise of her relationship with a journalist and how she was saved by a terminally ill psychiatrist. Tucci will be playing the dying doctor, a role that had been circled by several Hollywood A-listers, including George Clooney and Tom Hanks.

We of course like Stanley Tucci and Emma Watson in big blockbuster movies like "The Hunger Games" and "Harry Potter," respectively, but we're also looking forward to seeing them in the more intimate setting of a psychiatrist's office, showing off their Serious Actor chops with some juicy dramatic roles.

The film has yet to receive the official greenlight, though with Watson and Tucci now signed on, a thumbs-up in writing from Warner Bros. shouldn't be too hard to come by — especially with the studio eyeing this as a major Oscar contender for next year.

"Your Voice in My Head" is tentatively set to commence with production this summer under the direction of David Yates, who worked with Emma Watson on the second half of the "Harry Potter" saga.
