Creator: Kirk Douglas

Kirk Douglas, real name Issur Danielovitch Demsky (born December 9, 1916), is a famous actor and producer from about the late-40's to the 80's. Currently aged 97, he is one of the last living legends from the classic Hollywood era. Spartacus is arguably his most famous role.

Known for depicting tough, square-jawed men and once quoted as saying he "made a career out of playing sons of bitches"; actually quite nice in real life (depending on who you ask). Had something of a Large Ham reputation, though he proved that he could tone it down and still act pretty well. Often tag teamed with Burt Lancaster, though some sources claimed the two men strongly disliked each other. He also played a very important role in ending the black list going on in the film industry during the 50's and 60's. He is the father of Michael Douglas.
