Cramer and Sheen to Cameo Wall Street 2


Oh, The New York Times, if only you had been keeping up with your internet research, you wouldn't have thought that Charlie Sheen making a cameo in Wall Street 2 was nearly as interesting. As a matter of fact, if you wanted to know about Money Never Sleeps, the Wall Street sequel, you could have watched our video script review coverage and we would have told you about Sheen, Shia LaBeouf's character, Gekko's return - the works.

As it is, The Times did get to talk to Oliver Stone as he wandered around Wall Street a week before he starts filming the sequel. Stone seems whimsical that things in the financial sector that never would have gotten press coverage before started getting noticed after his film. Both he and Michael Douglas (who will be returning to his Oscar winning portrayal of Gekko) say it's weird to have fresh-faced Wall Streeters tell them how the original 1987 film got them into the business.

As far as cameos go, Sheen isn't the only one The New York Times is reporting:

Another aspect of Wall Street that changed — the financial press — borrowed some of the glamour of the film’s subject. Jim Cramer, the hyperkinetic host of “Mad Money” on CNBC and a former hedge fund manager, who certainly did his part to alter the complexion of financial news, will make an appearance in the film.

"Wall Street" Sequel: Michael Douglas, Oliver Stone

LOS ANGELES — Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone are back together again with a sequel to their 1987 hit "Wall Street."

Douglas is reprising his role as Gordon Gekko and Stone is on board again to direct the sequel, which for now has the working title "Wall Street 2," said 20th Century Fox spokesman Gregg Brilliant.

Brilliant said the project is timely and relevant given the state of the world.

"We need to keep the story line under wraps, but it's literally ripped from today's headlines," Brilliant said. "It's going to be very big and very cool."

With the economy and financial markets in a tailspin, it will be different times for Douglas' Gekko. In the original film, corporate raider Gekko was a symbol of Wall Street greed and corruption during the boom era of the 1980s.

Gekko has endured because audiences give him the "same kind of respect we've got for the great white shark," Douglas said in an interview Friday with Associated Press Television News for his upcoming life-achievement award from the American Film Institute.

"He's a villain. Gordon Gekko is a great, old-fashioned villain," Douglas said. "And, interestingly enough, if you look at most actors' careers, their biggest achievement, not necessarily success, but (achievement), is playing a bad guy."

Academy Awards voters agreed. Douglas earned the best-actor Oscar for Gekko.

The sequel is scheduled to start shooting this summer. Edward Pressman, who produced "Wall Street," also is back for the sequel, while Allan Loeb ("21") wrote the screenplay.
