Michael Douglas To Play Liberace In Upcoming Biopic

|

In the 80′s, greed was good. Today, gay is good. Steven Soderbergh says he’s lined up Michael Douglas, who starred in his Oscar-winner Traffic, to star in a movie about the legedarily flamboyant pianist. Matt Damon is in talks to play Scott Thorson, the guy who sued Liberace for $113 million dollars in palimony. With Sean Penn‘s Milk looking like a winner, no gay icon will be left behind by Hollywood’s male elite. [Variety]
