Stanley Tucci has shared the sad news that Searching for Italy has been cancelled - but fear not, it's hopefully not dead and buried just yet.

The much-loved show sees the actor travel around the nation, exploring food and his heritage; however, he told Jimmy Fallon that CNN have cut his travels short.

Watch here:



There have been two series of the show thus far, and Fallon was keen to establish whether we can expect more.

The bad news is that it's been cancelled, the good news is that Tucci wants to make more.

Asked whether there will be a season three, the 62-year-old replied: "Yes, I hope there will be.


"Unfortunately, CNN has cancelled all of their original programming. So hopefully we'll end up on another streamer, network - we don't know.

"But yes, I have plans to do season three and more."

"So Searching for Italy is searching for a new network," Fallon quipped.

Quite - but keep those chins up folks, with a show as good as Searching for Italy, surely that search won't last too long.

Tucci was recently crowned the second hottest bald man in the world, which I think you'll agree is quite the honour.

Different characteristics were measured by the SEO agency Reboot, which used facial Golden Ratio, Twitter sentiment analysis, net worth and height to establish once and for all who the hottest bald bloke is.

The company also measured each star’s cranial shine factor, which is literally how shiny their heads are. And you’d be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t appreciate a shiny head.


These scores were accumulated to form an index score out of 10 to make the ranking, with Tucci only bettered by Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel.

Read the full list and their scores below:

  1. Vin Diesel – 6.46/10
  2. Stanley Tucci – 6.33/10
  3. Shemar Moore – 6.25/10
  4. Pitbull – 6.16/10
  5. Prince William – 6.13/10
  6. Jason Statham – 5.96/10
  7. Bruce Willis – 4.75/10
  8. Joe Rogan – 4.37/10
  9. Dwayne 'The Rock Johnson – 3.62/10
  10. Mike Tyson – 2.50/10
