KIRK DOUGLAS DESPERATE PLEA

Spartacus himself, Hollywood icon Kirk Douglas attempt to save meth dealing, heroin addicted jailed grandson!

Kirk made a valiant effort to ask the judge to spare his drug-dealing grandson Cameron, the son of his son Michael Douglas.

He wrote a letter.

In his heart rending missive, Kirk, 93,  told how he traveled from Tinsel Town to New York  to visit Cam behind bars.

"He didn't express any self-pity, nor did he ask for any," Kirk wrote.

 "The only sorrow he expressed was for the trouble he had caused others. ... I was shocked when he got in such a mess."

"I'm convinced Cameron could be a fine actor.I hope I can see that happen before I die. I love Cameron."

Catherine Zeta-Jones,
Cameron's step mother, also wrote expressing support for the troubled meth-dealing black sheep of the Douglas clan.

Cameron has already plead guilty to charges he dealt methamphetamine out of a Manhattan hotel.

The charges carry a minimum term of 10 years behind bars. But the admitted heroin addict's lawyers argued he only deserves a maximum 3 1/2 years at sentencing next week.
