Michael Douglas to undergo chemos

Michael Douglas has tumor, expects full recovery - AFP 2 hrs 19 mins ago

NEW YORK – Michael Douglas has a tumor in his throat and will undergo radiation and chemotherapy.[/i]

The Academy Award-winning actor's treatment is scheduled to last eight weeks.

The 65-year-old Douglas says he expects to make a full recovery. He told People magazine in a statement Monday he's "very optimistic." His publicist's assistant, Eli Barach, confirmed his condition to The Associated Press.

The actor is outside the United States, publicist Allen Burry said Monday, declining to give his location or where he would be treated.

Douglas and his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, purchased a house on the island of Bermuda nearly a decade ago, and Zeta-Jones said they planned to raise their two children there.

Douglas won an Oscar for "Wall Street" and appears this fall in the sequel, "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps."

Anyone else remember Douglas from his early and unpromising "Hail Hero" or the TV movie "When Michael Calls"? At 25 a late bloomer for a Hollywood offspring star, he smoked his head off in those movies in what was even at the time (1970) to a 16 year old an extremely obvious case of product placement (to the extent that I can remember that the brand in "Hail Hero" was Kents).

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach
