Check out Michael Douglas as Liberace in first image from Behind The Candelabra

The first official image from Behind The Candelabra has emerged online, featuring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon sporting what has to be a new look for both of them.

Douglas plays flamboyant pianist and entertainer Liberace, while Damon is his younger lover Scott Thorson in this HBO biopic from director Steven Soderbergh.

The film will follow the tempestuous five-year love affair conducted by the pair between 1977 and 1982, from their first meeting to their very public break-up.

The first image shows both Douglas and Damon sporting some very loud suits, with a pair of luxuriant hairdos that appear to contain a can of hairspray apiece.

Co-starring Rob Lowe, Dan Aykroyd and Paul Reiser, Behind The Candelabra will open in the US later this year with a UK date to be confirmed.
