First Look: Behind the Candelabra

HBO previewed these screen shots from the upcoming Liberace biopic in their 2012 Yearender video, a teaser featuring shots of what’s to come for the network in 2013. From HuffPo: “Michael Douglas takes on an entirely new role – and wardrobe – in the upcoming HBO biopic Behind the Candelabra: He’s set to star as famously flamboyant musician Wladziu Valentino Liberace in the new film, where he’s 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.” Here Douglas is seen wearing a lavish white fur cape and sitting behind a glinting gold piano while an ABSOLUTELY SCRUMPTIOUS Matt Damon is suited in a white chauffer’s uniform. And, omg, it looks AWESOME, doesn’t it?
