08 May 2013

New photos from Steven Soderbergh’s final film and biopic, Behind The Candelabra, have been released. The pictures reveal Cheyenne Jackson playing Billy Leatherwood the famous protégée of entertainer and eccentric Liberace. These are the first images of Jackson who was absent in the recent trailer.

The production shots are just another teaser for Liberace fans who are impatiently anticipating the Cannes listed film.

The pictures follow on in the same vivid and garish style as the trailer, with grand gold encrusted pianos, flashy diamante suits, jelled quiffs, sun kissed tans and perfect white grins.

The film sees Micheal Douglas playing the flamboyant pianist Liberace, Matt Damon as his 17-year-old lover Scott Thorson, Cheyenne Jackson as Billy Leatherwood and Rob Lowe as the pianist’s overt cosmetic surgeon.

The trailer, released last month, stays true to Liberace’s glitzy showmanship lifestyle and image, with flashy bolero suits, grand settings, drugs and teasing imagery.

Behind The Candelabra will be premiered on HBO Movies on 26 May.
