The Amazing Michael Douglas

Michael Douglas has reprised his role as Gordon Gekko in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, which will be released in theatres September 24.

Of more significance is that Douglas, after months of misdiagnoses,  was recently diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer. He appeared on the David Letterman show last night in an incredible display of class and grit. Keep in mind while you watch this that just weeks earlier he learned of his cancer and that he has already started his chemotherapy treatment.

The must see clip is here.

His wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones is reportedly and understandably furious at the misdiagnoses, according to People. As for Douglas, People says:

And while she is furious about the lack of an early diagnosis, Douglas seems more understanding. "Without having to blame anybody ... these things sometimes just don't show up," he said.

  1. I'm not a Michael Douglas fan, but he is really showing some class in how he handles this. Good for him, and best wishes for his recovery.
