Michael Douglas arrives at the "Late Show with David Letterman" studios in midtown Manhattan, his first public appearance since it was revealed a couple weeks ago that he has throat cancer. Douglas has just completed his first of eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy, and appeared a little thinner than usual, with his suit looking a little baggy. With the coming weeks of treatment, he said, his voice may change and it could become impossible to swallow solid food. But he was upbeat, saying that despite his throat cancer being Stage 4, it has not spread down below his throat. Asked by Letterman what the percentages were, the "Wall Street" star said he has an 80% chance of recovery.
