When you think of Michael Douglas, what character is the first to spring to mind? Is it the ruthless uncaring Wall Street trader Gordon Gekko or maybe Romancing the Stone’s version of Indiana Jones, Jack T. Colton or the unfaithful husband courting the biggest psycho-bitch you ever saw in Fatal Attraction?
