While in New York preparing for his role as Liberace, Michael Douglas took a break from his busy schedule to enjoy lunch with pals at Marco Restaurant in New York.
The actor was diagnosed with throat cancer last year, and after completing intense radiation and chemotherapy, he looks much healthier ... and even seems to have put on weight. We couldn't be happier for him!
Douglas' wife, Catherine-Zeta Jones, has been by his side from the get-go, and no doubt, that has helped with his recovery.
As for his upcoming role, Douglas admits he's not the best dancer or singer, but he's "going to get my fingers ready for Liberace."
See which A-list actor will be playing Douglas' lover in Liberace after the jump ...
Matt Damon will play the role of the performer's longtime lover. Those kissing scenes should be interesting!
