For those out there that have always wanted to see Michael Douglas in rhinestones, fur and pink (all at the same time), your dreams will come true in the not-too-distant future. Hey... Where'd everybody go? I was just trying to let them know that Michael Douglas has signed on to star in the upcoming Steven Soderbergh biopic about Liberace. It's true--Liberace himself had a lower hairline than Mr. Douglas currently does, but like I tell my boyfriend, oh my god, please wipe the crumbs off the counter. Also: It takes a real man to wear pink. Douglas will comb his hair forward, don the pink tuxedo and maybe even keep the counters clean as Mr. Showbiz for his Traffic director.
Michael Douglas is really covering the acting spectrum lately. Last week, the Moviefile told you about the 64-year-old actor taking the role of flamboyantly be-sequined entertainer Liberace. (To me, though, Victor Garber is still the only real Liberace. Aside from the real real Liberace, I guess.) Variety reported earlier this week that Douglas will also be starring as "a car magnate with a runaway libido" in Millennium Films' Solitary Man.
