It's been a while since Michael Douglas really had a role he could get into. With Behind the Candelabra, in which he portrays Liberace, Douglas might have his best role in over a dozen years.
Few would think that Rooney Mara, whose acting career has launched into the stratosphere after appearing in The Social Network and starring as the titular character in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (which she received an Oscar nomination for), would still care about what reviewers thought of her performances.
When director Steven Soderbergh begin working on the long-in-development biopic about flamboyant entertainer Liberace, he didn't have to look far for an actor who would play Liberace's lover Scott Thorson. Soderbergh turned to frequent collaborator Matt Damon to star as Thorson in Behind the Candelabra, based on the titular book by Thorson, opposite Michael Douglas as the world-famous entertainer.
If any of the approximately seventy-nine hundred film societies gave out an annual award for "Most Risky Actor," Matthew McConaughey would easily take the top prize.
Hollywood is not an easy place. Despite dreams and general perceptions of what some consider “overnight success,” there is rarely, if ever, anything comparable to that particular occurrence.

Those that know me well know that my all-time most hated movie is The Wedding Planner. I was stuck seeing that movie on two separate dates before I learned it's perfectly acceptable to tell a girl "no, I'd prefer not to see a Jennifer Lopez movie." As much as I dislike the movie, I hold no ire toward Lopez's co-star Matthew McConaughey, although I never thought much of him as an actor because of his tendency to star in romantic comedies and awful action movies (though he is awesome in Dazed & Confused, one of my favorite films).
