After a relatively long apprenticeship involving flop movies ("Running" and "Hail, Hero") and a hit TV series ("Streets of San Francisco"), Michael Douglas came into his own in the 80's, becoming a bona fide movie superstar. His defining role was in "Wall Street", for which he won the Academy Award. Notable films include: "Romancing the Stone", "Fatal Attraction", and "Basic Instinct."

The fact that Michael Douglas built a huge career out of playing frequently unlikable characters has made his career all the more remarkable.

Michael's father Kirk Douglas was a major movie superstar for many decades. Michael Douglas is now married to actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.

His newest films include: "Traffic," "Till Death Do Us Part," and "The In-Laws." More
