Though it has been rumored for almost a year of his involvement with the project, it has finally been confirmed that Matt Damon will be featured in Steven Soderbergh's new Liberace biopic in the role of Scott Thorsen, a lover of Liberace’s.
The news was confirmed by the director himself, saying that Matt accepted "the challenge." Michael Douglas will be playing the iconic Liberace and Steven reveals that he has already gone into fittings for his flamboyant costumes.
The film is said to be focusing on the palimony suit in 1982 which forced Liberace to come out of the closet. Matt's character is actually the one who outs the flamboyant pianist.
It's a stretch for Matt, but in a good way. We think he could handle it. Maybe.
What do U think?
