Michael Douglas
by Alex Andy Phuong

An ordinary man named Michael Douglas had a very tumultuous life because of a Fatal Attraction between him and his formerly psychotic lover. Nevertheless, Michael still enjoyed a normal life with his wife, Catherine. Catherine was a big fan of musicals, and she and Michael had their first date while watching a live production of the musical Chicago. Michael also adored American literature, and his favorite novel was (and always will be) One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey. Michael’s day job was working at a firm in Wall Street, and many of his co-workers called him “Gordon” as a nickname. Sometimes Michael wishes he could be part of the Hollywood landscape, but he is not the famous actor because the Oscar winner is the son of Kirk Douglas while Michael’s father was actually named Hank.
