It’s here, it’s queer, get into it. Matt Damon and Michael Douglas star in (the trailer for) HBO’s Behind the Candelabra, detailing the life of Liberace and his lover Scott Thorson.

      Looks amazing. I saw Liberace play a couple of times when I was a kid. What were my parents thinking? Look how I turned out.

      Looks interesting.

      I live in Palm Springs where Liberace had a house and where much of the film takes
      place. Lee was quite a man as was Scott but their lives were not happy ones.

      We’ll see.

      Good for HBO to have the guts to present this film.

      42 year old Matt Damon playing 18 year old Scott Thorson is rather ridiculous casting.

      Is this supposed to be a comedy? Damon playing 18, and Douglas camping it up? Sure seems like comedy to me!

      @ncman: 18? Scott was only 16 when he met Lee, So 40+ Damon is playing a 16-year-old. That’s comedy. Douglas is also older than his character – who was in his 50s when the two met.

      I agree that Damon particularly is a bit long in the tooth to play Scott, but the casting makes sense to me. Soderbergh would have wanted performers with serious acting chops and HBO no doubt preferred the marquee value of name actors. They would have been a better “fit” 10 years ago–how long has this project been in the making, anyway?–but I suspect HBO wouldn’t have had the courage then.

      I went to the Liberace museum in Las Vegas back in 2000 and was really amazed by the costumes and cars he owned. The piano’s were fabulous. The old queen lived just like what she was, a queen. And that old queen, unlike her crown wearing, taxpayer funded counterparts over in……….Liberace earned EVERY DIME and lived like he deserved to.

      In time, this is going to be campier then Show Girls! Lets just hope it delivers with some memorable one liners.
