SWEET ROLES

Cheyenne Jackson And Rob Lowe Join Liberace Movie Cast

Cheyenne Jackson and Rob Lowe have been added to the cast of the upcoming Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh and adapted by Richard LaGravenese from the book of the same name, the film will center on the secret relationship between the flamboyant entertainer and his young lover, Scott Thorson.

According to IndieWire, Lowe has signed on to play a plastic surgeon and Hatfields and McCoys star, Boyd Holbrook is currently in negotiations to play another young lover of the glitzy showman.

Jackson’s role however is unspecified –- one can only hope that it involves him being dipped in gold and covered in rhinestones.

Filming for Behind the Candelabra begins this summer with a cast that includes Michael Douglas and Matt Damon as Liberace and Thorson, as well as Dan Aykroyd, Debbie Reynolds and Scott Bakula.
