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, the first as producer of ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'', and the other for his role as Gordon Gekko in ''Film/WallStreet''. Other popular films on his resume include ''Film/TheChinaSyndrome'', ''Film/RomancingTheStone'', ''Film/WonderBoys'' and ''Film/{{Traffic}}''.

He's been married to Creator/CatherineZetaJones 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.
