This is no longer a rumour, so what I’m about to announce here is true. Matt Damon and Michael Douglas are going to star in a movie about Liberace, and his gay lover Scott Thorson
The Liberace Movie is the latest directorial venture undertaken by acclaimed and renowned movie maker Steven Soderbergh. Not sure why Damon feels compelled to play the role of the gay lover, but it is indeed true Douglas and Damon will share many on-screen kisses in the movie. Set gaydar to auto-detect.
The movie is based on Liberace, and his boy-toy Scott Thorson, Liberace’s 24-year-old bodyguard, limo driver and companion of 5 years. Shit got real when Scott Thorson, took the entertainer to court, suing from $113 million in palimony. Liberace continued to deny any allegations, and although Thorson’s claim was largely unsuccessful, he did receive a $95,000 settlement. You know what? Sounds like Thorson had a bad lawyer.
The pianist was diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and was hospitalised in January of 1987 with suspected anemia. He died just a couple of weeks later. Though his condition was never made public, an autopsy following his death confirmed that Liberace died from AIDS. Yep, real shocker, AIDS.
Nope, but we can’t wait to post the trailer of Damon and Douglas sucking face. How hot is that? grrrrowl.
Liberace Release Date
Liberace is due for release in 2013.
No, and I’m not posting any pictures of the real Liberace either. Dude creeped me out worse than my uncle Gary at my 8th birthday party.
Who’s In It?
Matt Damon and Michael Douglas.
What’s Good About It?
How will fans embrace seeing Damon and Douglas kissing?
What’s Bad About It?
I have Damon pegged as a certain type of role, this doesn’t interest me.
