Behind the Candelabra

Question: Who did the actual piano-playing for the movie? I'm sure it couldn't have been Michael Douglas.

Douglas Bell

Chosen answer: Michael Douglas was not playing the piano himself. Special effects were used to digitally graft Douglas' head onto the body of Philip Fortenberry, a Julliard-trained pianist who also once played at the now-closed Liberace Museum in Las Vegas.
