#FIRSTLOOK: ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY SNEAK PEEK AT “BEHIND THE CANDELABRA”
After several delays, it would appear that the release of Behind the Candelabra (formerly known as Liberace) is finally before us. Based on the Memoir by legendary Vocalist/Pianist Wladziu Valentino Liberace‘s much younger Lover, Scott Thorson, the HBO Movie dishes on the scandal and extravagance behind their relationship.
Starring Michael Douglas in the titular role, the Actor originally signed-on in 2008 to star in the Film, although delays ensued due to his battle with Cancer. Matt Damon plays Thorson, in addition to a strong Supporting Cast which includes Scott Bakula, Paul Reiser and Rob Lowe. If that weren’t enough, Steven Soderbergh helms what looks to be this year’s Game Change – and we know many Primetime EMMYsand Golden Globes that won.
With the help of Prosthetics, Michael Douglas goes through the most amazing transformation of all and it is reported that Damon had a special Tanning Technician visit his home regularly to gear-up for his role.
Although we’re still waiting on the Trailer, Entertainment Weekly gets a Sneak Peek for the Movie with both Damon and Douglas on the cover of their current Issue.
