My (quick) take on Behind the Candelabra: Debbie Reynolds, Dan Aykroyd, Cheyenne Jackson, Scott Bakula and Rob Lowe are delicious; Matt Damon has incredible, Emmy-worthy depth and makes it all worthwhile; Michael Douglas is two-dimensional and miscast; the entire movie is more in the vein of Magic Mike (which was great fun, but I was expecting more from a biopic) than [fill in any other Soderbergh movie]; and it's ludicrous to call it a "love story." The genre is more closely horror. What a completely unhealthy relationship...from, "Hi, nice to meet you!" to alleged deathbed farewell. It definitely held my interest, it just wasn't shaded. Bad wigs.

Matt Damon speaks extensively about his upcoming role as Scott Thorson, Liberace's lover (Liberace played by Michael Douglas). in the upcoming HBO film Behind the Candelabra in a fascinating Playboy interview. He apparently did lots of nudity and lots of kisses (Douglas gets an A+).
Speaking about how he views the relationship between Thorson and Liberace, he says:
"These two men were deeply in love and in a real relationship—a marriage—long before there was gay marriage. That’s not an insignificant thing. The script is beautiful and relatable. Their conversations when they’re dressing or undressing or having a spat or getting ready for bed? That’s every marriage. It feels like you’re witnessing something really intimate you would normally see with a man and a woman, but instead it’s two men, which was thrilling. There’s stuff I think will make people uncomfortable. Great. It’s HBO—they can change the channel."
As for gay rumors that have popped up regarding his tight friendship with Ben Affleck, Damon says:
"I never denied those rumors because I was offended and didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay—as if being gay were some kind of fucking disease. It put me in a weird position in that sense. The whole thing was just gross. But look, there have been great signs of progress—the fact that Anderson Cooper and Ellen DeGeneres can come out so beautifully and powerfully, and it’s a big fucking deal that it turns out nobody gives a shit. If Liberace were alive today, everybody would love his music and nobody would care what he did in his private life. Like with Elton John."
It's a great interview, packed with little nuggets of info like the fact that Damon once discussed doing Brokeback Mountain with Joaquin Phoenix.
From here: I will be first in line to see the Liberace biopic, but I can't get past the casting if this is how Michael Douglas looks. Is he playing Liberace or Joe Pesci? I'm glad my brother George isn't here.
The real deal:
