New York : Hollywood actor Michael Douglas says he's begun treatment for throat cancer and that his odds of recovery are high.

In an appearance Tuesday on David Letterman's "Late Show," the actor said he faces an "eight-week struggle" that includes radiation and chemotherapy. Douglas said he has at least an 80 percent chance of recovery.

Letterman told Douglas he looked good and was a "tough guy," and the men ended the interview with a hug, according to a CBS statement.

Douglas stars in the upcoming film "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," a sequel to "Wall Street" (1987), for which he won a best-actor Oscar. AP
