Michael Douglas will attend the Golden Globe Awards this Sunday, marking the actor's first public appearance since declaring himself cancer-free.

But the actor will be doing more than just walking the red carpet in the near future: he's ready to get back to work. For his next role, Douglas will take on the flamboyant musician, Liberace.

“I’ve been watching a lot of tapes of him," he told People. “He wasn’t the greatest dancer nor the greatest singer, but he was a great pianist and entertainer.”

Douglas says he'll take piano lessons for the film, which will likely be released next year some time.

At the Golden Globes, meanwhile, the veteran star is up for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Gordon Gekko in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
