Michael Douglas is to receive the Chaplin Award from the Film Society of Lincoln Centre.
The two-time Oscar winner has been selected as the 37th recipient of the annual gong, named after its first recipient Charles Chaplin, and will be presented with it at a glitzy gala at Alice Tully Hall in New York on May 24, said The Hollywood Reporter.
"Throughout his career, Michael has entertained audiences both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, and it will be an honour to showcase his diverse body of work," Film Society board chairman Ann Tenenbaum said.
Michael - who's married to fellow actress Catherine Zeta-Jones - produced One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and Wall Street. He next reprises the character of Gordon Gekko in Oliver Stone's sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, which also stars Carey Mulligan and Shia LaBeouf.
