Douglas beard poster

8 years agoby:
100%
Remember when Michael Douglas was doing the talk-show rounds last year in a massive Brad Pitt-esque beard? And no, it's not what you're thinking, WB was not filming a sequel to the very awesome THE FOUNTAIN, but rather, Douglas was playing the title character in a film entitled KING OF CALIFORNIA in which he plays an unstable father who after getting out of a mental institution tries to convince his daughter (played by the lovely Evan Rachel Wood), that there's Spanish gold buried somewhere under suburbia.

Now either Douglas is going for an Oscar, or this film is attempting to join THE BIG LEBOWSKI as a stoner flick for the ages, but I guess we won't know until the film's reviews start pouring in from Sundance, where it will be debuting next week. No studio or release date for the film yet, but you can check out an international trailer for the movie HERE, or its neat posters just released below. Thanks to 'Ben' for the head's up!

Looks good!

I had written a minor character role very similar to Douglas' in this film - complete with looking for gold in a housing development. No, I know no one reads shit that I write, so no I know this is coincidental. My point being is that I am IMMENSELY looking forward to seeing this film. Douglas strikes gold (pun not initially intended) when he plays these sorts of odd beaten-by-odds characters, as was the case in Wonder Boys. I've always respected him, but he's gaining a sort-of Bill

I've always respected him, but he's gaining a sort-of Bill Murray-esque charm in recent years. I hope he keeps stretching himself and staying away from the character-type he's most well known as - handsome rich guy. I can dig it.

Words cannot express how disappointed I am that at no point in this article was there any mention of wanting to construct some form of residence within Michael Douglas' bountiful facial hair.
