Convicted drug dealer Cameron Douglas, son of actor Mike Douglas and grandson of Kirk Douglas, has rounded up plenty star power to try and convince a federal judge to go easy on him at sentencing on April 14 in New York.

Cameron’s grandfather Kirk Doulgas, his step-mother Catherine Zeta-Jones and NBA legend Pat Riley submitted letters to the judge on Cameron’s behalf, asking for leniency. The letters were filed in federal court.

In January, Douglas, 31,  pleaded guilty to selling large quantities of methamphetamine and cocaine while staying at Hotel Gansevoort, a trendy Manhattan hotel. He was busted by the DEA.

In the court filings,  Zeta-Jones told the sentencing judge Richard M. Berman in a handwritten letter that her stepson had a “disease” with drug abuse and is a “caring, considerate, worthy human being, but never the less, the disease, that for years, he has tried to combat did take over again. What is wrong, is wrong, but may all these positive attributes prevail, so that a facility that he is positioned in will help rehabilitate him.”

Grandfather Kirk Douglas wrote :

“Cameron was always a pleasant guy who cared for others. It was a surprise to me when he got in trouble. It wasn’t a surprise to me to find out that Cameron had natural talent as an actor. I remember when he played a part in the movie with Michael and me. He was a natural. We were so proud.

“I am convinced that Cameron could be a fine actor and a person that cares for others. I hope I can see that happen before I die. I love Cameron.”
