'Behind The Candelabra': Imagining Other Actors In Liberace's Sky-High Hair & Rhinestone Shoes (PHOTOS)


In HBO's "Behind the Candelabra" (premieres Sun., May 26, 9 p.m. ET), Michael Douglas plays Liberace -- and the resemblance is truly uncanny.

It's a surprising turn for the Oscar-winning actor, but one that we imagine more of Hollywood's biggest stars would've embraced. The sequins, the fancy cars, the over-the-top ensembles, the flamboyant lifestyle, the absolute excess of everything, working alongside Matt Damon with director Steven Soderbergh, on what's rumored to be his last film ... it's the role of a lifetime.

So we couldn't help but imagine who else could've rocked the part of one of Hollywood's greatest entertainers. From HBO movie regular Al Pacino to Greek yogurt peddler and sometime-musician John Stamos, click through our gallery of dream Liberace runners-up for "Behind the Candelabra."
