Rob Lowe Goes Behind The Candelabra

With shooting set to start soon, Steven Soderbergh is wasting no time locking down the rest of his cast for Liberace film Behind The Candelabra. Today brings the news that Rob Lowe, Cheyenne Jackson and Boyd Holbrook are all jumping aboard.

Michael Douglas and Matt Damon are starring as the musician and his long-time live-in lover, Scott Thorson, whose memories of their tumultuous relationship power Richard LaGravenese’s script about the couple and the effect of their relationship on Liberace’s career.

Last week, Dan Aykroyd was hired to play Liberace’s manager, Seymour Heller, and Debbie Reynolds is also in place.

Now The Playlist has discovered that Lowe will be a plastic surgeon in the movie and Holbrook is making a deal to play one of the main character’s youthful lovers. Jackson’s role is still shrouded in mystery.

Rob Lowe, of course, needs little introduction, and can usually be found playing fitness fanatic and positivity expert Chris Traeger on Parks And Recreation. On the big screen, he was last seen in The Invention Of Lying. Broadway regular Jackson is a recurring member of the 30 Rock ensemble and will next crop up in rom com Lola Versus. Holbrook, meanwhile, will be battling alien invaders in The Host next year.
