Michael Douglas ‘Beats’ Cancer

Transcript by ( BY ERIK SHUTE You’re watching multisource entertainment video analysis from Newsy Michael Douglas is out of treatment and a few pounds lighter, but could not be happier for a new lease on life. He says he’s “beat” throat cancer and is back in the prime of his life. “The odds are the tumor gone and what I know about this particular type of cancer that I got to beat.” Douglas was last seen on the big screen portraying Gordon Gecko in “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.” His “wild six-month ride” through chemotherapy kept him under the media magnifying glass. It began in August on David Letterman. “I’ve got cancer. I’ve got cancer. I’ve found out about three weeks ago. I said, ‘gee just when I found out I was going to be on your show.’ I got a biopsy and they analyzed it. It’s a stage four which is intense, so they got to go at it.” Matt Lauer scored the exclusive post-recovery interview — Douglas’ first since beginning treatment. With cameras rolling, the Oscar winning actor revealed how his celebrity status was an added burden. LAUER: “There were some pictures taken Michael that as someone who knew you, worried me a little bit. You didn’t look so good.” DOUGLAS: “There was sort of a macabre enjoyment out of sort of watching me go down there for a while I felt by the paparazzi.” LAUER: “This is not a social scandal, this is not a marital issue, this is life and death.” ABC wanted to know what the 66-year-old Douglas will do now that he’s cancer

Michael Douglas and Matt Damon to play lovers in Gay superstar biopic

The movie world is abuzz with news that Michael Douglas and Matt Damon are to star in a new biopic based on the life of flamboyant gay entertainer Liberace.

The outrageously camp piano playing showman, best known for his extravagant costumes and Las Vegas spectaculars, was once the world’s highest paid musical performer. He died of an AIDS related illness in 1987.

Damon has signed for the role of Scott Thorsen, boyfriend and assistant to Liberace, who famously sued the singer for palimony in 1982, reports People magazine.

Liberace sued the Daily Mirror (and won) for suggesting he was gay in 1956.

Douglas is to play the lead role and has already quipped to Damon “Get your Chapstick ready” the Bourne Supremacy star revealed during a press conference for his forthcoming movie ‘The Informant’.

It is not the first gay role Damon has played – he received critical acclaim for his portrayal of charlatan Tom Ripley in The Talented Mr. Ripley and appeared in a gay choir on camp TV comedy Will And Grace.

“It’s going to be a great movie. My role is a great role. But Michael’s role? It’s spectacular.” He said.

The as yet untitled movie is the latest in a string of gay related releases set for big screen distribution in the coming year: Guy’s Richie’s ‘Sherlock Holmes’ introduces a budding romance between the super sleuth, played by Robert Downey Junior, and his side-kick Watson, played by Jude Law and I Love You Phillip Morris stars Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor as gay prison cellmates.
