Danny Devito will accept a film award on behalf of his actor pal Michael Douglas, according to new reports.
The actor, who teamed up with Douglas in Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile, will jet to the Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland to take part in a tribute to Douglas as the star undergoes chemotherapy for a throat tumour.

DeVito will accept the Golden Icon Award at the festival on 3 October, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film festival hit the headlines last year – Roman Polanski was arrested there by Swiss police as he arrived to pick up a lifetime achievement award.
