Karl Malden to Get SAG Life Achievement Honor

NEW YORK - Michael Douglas will present the Screen Actors Guild's 40th Life Achievement Award to former television co-star Karl Malden at the 10th annual SAG Awards, executive producer Jeff Margolis announced Tuesday.

The 2004 Actors, honoring the outstanding performances of 2003 in five film and eight television categories, will be telecast by TNT from the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center on Feb. 22 (8 p.m. EST).

Malden, who starred with Douglas in the 1970s crime drama 'The Streets of San Francisco,' is being honored by SAG for his career achievement and humanitarian accomplishments.

During his acceptance speech for the honorary Cecil B. DeMille Award at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, Douglas thanked Malden for 'showing me what a work ethic is about' as the 91-year-old acting veteran smiled from the audience.

Clint Eastwood, Edward Asner, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, Sidney Poitier, Kirk Douglas, Elizabeth Taylor, Angela Lansbury, Robert Redford, and George Burns are among past recipients of the Life Achievement Award.
