CJ: But, yeah, I start this week on the Liberace movie - and, yes, right now it is called BEHIND THE CANDELABRA. It has such a great cast, too - Debbie Reynolds, Rob Lowe, Dan Aykroyd, Matt Damon; just an amazing cast.
PC: Who is your character?
CJ: I play Jerry O’Rourke, who is Liberace’s first boyfriend. It’s going to be pretty amazing - I couldn’t be more excited. We are going to film in Vegas and Palm Springs and LA - it’s going to be a real adventure.
PC: It is going to be a roughly 2-hour film for HBO, correct?
CJ: Yeah - at this point.
PC: Do you know if it will be expanded to a 4-hour series? It’s been rumored that is being considered, ala Mildred Pierce.
CJ: No clue. It’s a big story to tell, though - but, no, I don’t know the answer to that.
