In addition to the bevy of stars already signed up for this week’s “Stand Up to Cancer” telethon, actor Michael Douglas will also participate in the event, which will raise funds for cancer research.
The 65-year-old star of the upcoming movie “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” was recently diagnosed with a tumor in his throat, and is currently enduring a bout of radiation and chemotherapy. “It’s a fight,” he told People magazine of his treatment. “It knocks you out.”
Douglas, who will participate via a taped segment, will join previously announced stars Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara, Christina Applegate, Michael C. Hall, Jim Parsons, Gabrielle Union, Seth MacFarlane, David Boreanaz and Mandy Moore for the hour-long program.
