Michael Douglas appeared in NYC Monday night with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones at the premiere of his new film, "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" -- his first red carpet event since being diagnosed with stage four throat cancer.

Douglas smiled on the carpet, but didn't speak. His co-stars did all the talking - praising the brave actor.

"He's a professional and he's strong-willed and this is not a weak man," Shia LaBeouf said of Douglas. "He's one of the strongest men I've ever met. He'll be fine."

Longtime friend Susan Sarandon told "Extra," "I think what I've been impressed with is his grace and his sense of humor... I think he's really smart to take the time to do this [attend the premiere] because he's brilliant in it, and why sit at home, right?"

Josh Brolin said he's had the opportunity to spend the past week and a half with Douglas, who is only weeks into his two months of daily radiation. "To see what he's doing right now, I would imagine the state he's in and the pain that he's feeling, but he's still putting himself out there, he's not isolating, it's great."
