It's Michael Douglas as you've never seen him before.
Best known for playing suited-up businessmen like "Wall Street" banker Gordon Gekko and "Fatal Attraction" lawyer Dan Gallagher, Douglas takes on an entirely new role -- and wardrobe -- in the upcoming HBO biopic "Behind the Candelabra": H'es set to star as famously flamboyant musician Wladziu Valentino Liberace in the new film.

Douglas stars as Liberace in "Behind the Candleabra," joined by Matt Damon, who plays Liberace's longtime lover, chauffeur Scott Thorson. The film is based on Thorson's tell-all book, "Behind the Candelabra: My Life with Liberace." Steven Soderbergh directs.
HBO previewed some shots from the film in its "2012 Yearender" video, a teaser featuring shots of what's to come for the network in 2013. Douglas is seen wearing a lavish white fur cape and sitting behind a glinting gold piano while Damon is suited in a white chauffer's uniform. »
