Matt Damon In 'Behind the Candelabra': Actor Undergoes Major Transformation (PHOTOS)

Much has been written about Matt Damon and Michael Douglas' performances in the highly anticipated Liberace movie, "Behind the Candelabra," which premiered on HBO over the weekend. And while Douglas' portrayal of an aging pop pianist left critics moved, it was Damon's transformation into a buff, young hunk that left us truly speechless.

Damon plays Liberace's younger (by 40 years) lover and sometimes abusive partner-in-crime, Scott Thorson. Below, the best screen shots of Damon in the Steven Soderbergh-directed biopic:
