The 65-year-old actor is set to be honored at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's 37th annual Chaplin Award Gala for his career in film industry.

Michael Douglas is set to follow in the footsteps of Tom Hanks after landing a coveted prize from New York's Film Society of Lincoln Center. The 65-year-old Oscar winner will be the guest of honor at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's 37th annual Chaplin Award Gala, where Hanks was feted in 2009.

The award, named after its first recipient Charlie Chaplin, will be presented to the star on May 24, when Douglas' friends and colleagues will gather at New York's Alice Tully Hall to pay tribute to his acting career, which has spanned more than four decades.

Film Society board co-chair Liz Swig says, "It will be an honor to add Michael Douglas to our list of past honorees, I am really looking forward to creating another fabulous evening as we celebrate Michael's career achievements among friends and fans."

Other former recipients include, Alfred Hitchcock, Laurence Olivier, Elizabeth Taylor, Martin Scorsese, Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep.
