The clothes may look funny, but they're making him the money.
If you don't feel you can wait another month to see Michael Douglas play Liberace in Steven Soderbergh’s biopic (also starring Matt Damon), bad news: You have to wait several. According to Douglas, the movie isn't even going to begin shooting until this fall: “Matt Damon’s going off to make a payday picture this summer. And I have to gain some weight.” Sorry, Liberace fans, but surely you can wait a little bit longer, right?
I've looked at some photos of Liberace, and I think Michael Douglas is a good pick to play him. Not sure what angle Soderbergh is going to take towards the material, but as one of the best directors working now, I trust him. I ... I guess I'm going to watch a movie about Liberace. Weird.
