ROME – Having brought Liberace to the big screen in Behind the Candelabra, Michael Douglas is playing another real life cocksman in Franco Zefferelli’s Bunga Bunga: The Fast Life and Hard Times of Silvio Berlusconi.

The ex-Italian Prime Minister, convicted fraudster and ‘bunga-bunga’ specialist is currently serving a community service for his shenanigans, but expressed his delight at becoming the subject of a Hollywood motion picture.

He spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec:

It’s about time! Ha ha ha. My life it was already like a Hollywood movie. I was a singer on the cruise ships, like Frank Sinatra but with more talent, and then I got a break with a lot of money. Don’t ask me where the money came from it is better not to say. Then it was like a Martin Scorsese movie. I had it all. I got into real estate and TV. I was a star, an entrepreneur and lived like a king. Then I got into politics.

What advice would you give Michael Douglas in playing you?

I am very happy Mr. Douglas is playing me. He is a virile red blooded young man, just like myself, with a full head of luxuriant hair, just like myself.  He is also renowned as a great one with the ladies. Although he seems to like older ladies. Each to his own I suppose. And he’s a wonderful singer. I would give him the advice to use a lot  of humor. I myself as well as being an astute political operator, a daring business leader and a champion of Catholic morality, am also a man with a stunningly funny sense of humor.

Bunga Bunga: The Fast Life and Hard Times of Silvio Berlusconi will be released in 2015.
