Michael Kirk Douglas (born 1944) is an American actor and producer, the son of famous actor Creator/KirkDouglas. His first major role was in the TV series ''Series/TheStreetsOfSanFrancisco'' alongside Karl Malden. He has since won an Emmy, a Golden Globe and two UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s, first as producer of ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'', and his role as Gordon Gekko in ''Wall Street''. Other popular films on his resume include ''The China Syndrome'', ''Romancing The Stone'', ''Wonder Boys'' and ''Traffic''.

He's been married to Catherine Zeta-Jones since 2000. He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2010, but appears to have gotten past it. He is also the reason why Creator/MichaelKeaton goes by that name, as his real surname is also Douglas.
