“Matt Damon, who was absolutely wonderful, narrated this film at, to put it very mildly, far less than his commercial rate, that would be an understatement. But even more importantly than that, had incredibly smart, insightful suggestions about the narration of the film, and in fact, some of the narration at the end of the film reflects his suggestions in a way that we found very valuable. It was great to work with him.”
That said, Douglas still plans to play Liberace in Steven Soderbergh's biopic, tentatively slated to start shooting next year and co-starring Matt Damon as Liberace's lover. He excitedly shows off his copy of Scott Thorson's Behind the Candelabra (My Life With Liberace), the basis for the film. "Matt is all, God bless him, gung-ho," Douglas says, laughing.
