We've seen the pics of Michael Douglas as Liberace. Now we finally get a glimpse of the man in action.

Well, for about 30 seconds.

In this new teaser for the upcoming HBO biopic, Behind the Candelabra, the Oscar winner can be seen tickling the ivories as the flamboyant entertainer, sporting an array of extravagant costumes and, oh yeah, sharing a bath with Matt Damon, who plays Liberace's younger lover, Scott Thorson.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh and based on Thorson's autobiography, the film focuses on the closeted relationship between Liberace and Thorson, who filed a $113 million palimony suit against the showman in 1982.

Behind the Candelabra is scheduled to premiere May 26 on HBO.
