(Newser) – Michael Douglas has some advice for Matt Damon, his soon-to-be co-star—and onscreen lover—in an upcoming film about Liberace. “I saw Michael last night. He comes up and says, ‘Get your Chapstick ready,’” Damon tells USA Today. “It's going to be a great movie,” he adds of the Steven Soderbergh film. “My role is a great role. But Michael’s role?”—Douglas will play Liberace—“It's spectacular.”
