Michael Douglas Is... Liberace?


When I read this morning that Steven Soderbergh is planning on making a Liberace bio-pic with Michael Douglas to star as the code-word-flamboyant singer, well my first thought was "WHA?"

But then, after a moment's consideration, it immediately made sense. It's perfect actually. Do y'all see it?

Matt Damon is in talks to play "his alleged former lover" Scott Thorson who sues him for palimony in 1982, causing mucho scandal.

The choice that most perplexes me here is Soderbergh. Has he ever shown the slightest interest in any gay subject matter? I suppose one could always start, but I don't know, it throws me. We'll see. He can be a great filmmaker.
