Behind the Candelabra

  • Behind the Candelabra started filming last Monday. Here are excerpts from an interview with actor Cheyenne Jackson about the film:

    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.

  • A few tweets from Cheyenne and Rob Lowe about the film are below.
