For most parents, having a kid in jail would be a total nightmare.
For Michael Douglas, it's a bit like waking up.
The Wall Street actor appeared on the Today show this morning for a frank interview regarding his 31-year-old son Cameron Douglas' recent drug sentence. He's downright hopeful.
"Look, my son was a drug dealer and he's been trying to kill himself for a while and I can't condone his behavior," he told Matt Lauer. "I think the court recognized his drug addiction as well as the crime that he committed. It's an adequate amount of time...to spend in jail, and the best part of it is he will be able to start his life afresh."
