Tucker was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and is a graduate of the Baltimore City College High School in Baltimore and Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he befriended Steven Bochco, executive-producer of NBC television's L.A. Law.

Tucker's acting experience includes early appearances with Joseph Papp and a major stint at the Arena Theatre, in Washington, D.C. He also has worked with Lina Wertmüller, Woody Allen, and Barry Levinson.

Tucker co-starred in L.A. Law as Stuart Markowitz along with his wife, Jill Eikenberry, who portrayed the character Ann Kelsey.

Both he and Eikenberry are active in fund-raising for breast cancer research and treatment.

Tucker has written three books, including Living in a Foreign Language: A Memoir of Food, Wine, and Love in Italy, which describes his buying a house in a small Italian village and mastering the fine art of Italian cooking. He is the author of Notes From A Culinary Wasteland, a blog about food, travel and the good life.

After meeting artist Emile Norman, Eikenberry and Tucker purchased land from him to become his neighbors in Big Sur, California. In 2006, they produced a PBS documentary entitled Emile Norman: By His Own Design.

In March 2015 Tucker co-starred with Eikenbery in The M Spot, a play written by Tucker and presented at the New Jersey Repertory Company.
