“The odds are, with the tumor gone and what I know about this particular type of cancer, that I’ve got it beat,” Douglas said during an interview with TODAY Show anchor Matt Lauer, that will air Tuesday.

In August 2010, Douglas was diagnosed with stage-four throat cancer and completed his chemotherapy in October.

“I’m 66 now. You know, I’m fortunate I’ve got a mother who’s 88. She’ll kill me. She may be 87. My father’s 94. So, you know, I feel good about those genes. But it’s definitely a third act. And so you’re a little more conscious of your time in how you choose to spend it.”
