A 'Best in Show' reunion and 'Kentucky Fried Movie' anniversary screening will also be a part of this year's event.

As a part of the 2017 TCM Classic Film Festival, Michael Douglas will sit down for an in-depth interview about his career.

The Hollywood-based fest has also announced a slew of special events, including Best in Show castmembers Fred Willard, John Michael Higgins, Jim Piddock and Bob Balaban discussing the 2000 mockumentary and a 40th anniversary screening of The Kentucky Fried Movie, with John Landis, Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker set to participate in a post-screening discussion.

Douglas also will participate in a discussion following a screening of the 1979 thriller The China Syndrome, which he produced and starred in opposite Jane Fonda and Jack Lemmon.

Bob Newhart will also introduce a screening of Hell Is for Heroes (1962).

These additions are joining previously announced programming like Mel Brooks introducing the 40th anniversary screening of his Hitchcock spoof High Anxiety and Peter Bogdanovich screening The Last Picture Show (1971).

The TCM Classic Film Festival is set to run April 6-9.
