First Image of Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace Biopic BEHIND THE CANDELABRA

     July 31, 2012


The first image from the set of what may or may not be Steven Soderbergh’s last film has a director has landed online.  His pre-sabbatical pic is a biopic of famed artist Liberace that he’s been developing for quite some time, and we now get our first look at Michael Douglas as the flamboyant pianist and Matt Damon as his lover Scott Thorson in Behind the Candelabra.  The scene in question seems to be from Liberace’s earlier years given Douglas’ hair color, but the two actors definitely have the 70s look down.

Produced by Jerry Weintraub, Behind the Candelabra is skipping the theatrical route and will make its debut on HBO.  The impressive ensemble cast includes Rob Lowe, Dan Aykroyd, Debbie Reynolds, and Scott Bakula.  I’m eager to see what kind of tone Soderbergh has settled on and whether we’re in for a straightforward biopic or something a bit different.  Knowing Soderbergh it’s most likely the latter, which is a very good thing.  Hit the jump to check out the image.
