Stanley Tucci is engaged to actress Emily Blunt's sister Felicity, the actor announced on November 3.

Tucci starred opposite British actress Emily Blunt in the 2006 film, "The Devil Wears Prada" and the actress decided to set him up with her sister, who works at a London literary agency, according to Us magazine.

According to the weekly, Tucci has been making frequent trips to London to visit Felicity, who is 20 years younger than the actor.

"Emily loved Stanley on the set of Devil, and just thought they would hit it off, so she set them up," a source told Us Weekly.

It will be the second marriage for Tucci, whose wife of 14 years Kate died in May 2009 after battling cancer.

"It hasn't been easy for him getting into a new relationship, but Felicity is a lovely person and very warm and comforting," the source said.

Stanley and Kate had three children together.

"My wife was an extraordinary person who showed us all what great strength is," Tucci told the New York Post at the time of her death.

Kate Tucci also had two children from a previous marriage who Stanley helped raise. The couple was separated between 2003 and 2004, during which time Tucci dated actress Edie Falco.

In May, it was announced that Tucci had joined the cast of the highly-anticipated "Hunger Games" movie, which stars fellow Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence.

The 50-year-old actor will play Caesar Flickerman, the "upbeat" host of the Hunger Games, a televised event that sees a boy and a girl from different districts fight each other to the death, the production company Lionsgate said in a statement. The film is based on a novel by Suzanne Collins and is set for release on March 23, 2012.

Tucci earned an Academy Award nomination for his role as a killer in the 2009 movie "The Lovely Bones" and starred opposite Meryl Streep in the films "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Julie & Julia." He played a father in the comedy "Easy A" and an assistant to Cher's leading character in the 2010 musical movie "Burlesque."

Tucci also appeared as Abraham Erskine in the recently-released superhero film "Captain America: The First Avenger."

Emily Blunt found her own marital bliss a few years back when she tied the knot with "The Office" star John Krasinski on July 10, 2010 after dating for two years.

Tucci and Felicity Blunt have yet to announce a date for their wedding.
