Rewind ArchiveBud's father in the movie is played by Martin Sheen. Charlie Sheen's old man! The two set the screen alight with their blistering performances. A testament to a great acting family and the once fiery career of the young Sheen.
Charlie was apparently asked whether he would prefer Jack Lemmon or his real father by Director Oliver Stone.
Thanks to David EvansAlthough Sean Young ("Blade Runner," "No Way Out") was cast as Gordon Gekko's wife, almost all of her scenes were cut from the final release.

Thanks to Tom LAndrea Thompson, who played the hooker who picks up Bud Fox at his apartment, played a cop on ABC's NYPD Blue. She currently an anchor on CNN.
Thanks to AnonymousAn eerie prophecy? There are two scenes in where you can see the green clock in the background of Bud's office floor. Each time the clock reads 9:11...
1st scene is right when Bud is shown his new corner office and his manager is talking to him - the clock is behind him showing 9:11.
The 2nd time is the scene immediately after Bud's meeting with Sir Lawrence, on Bud's office floor again, the clock turns from 9:10 to 9:11.
Thanks to C.T. WarrenIn September of 2010, Oliver Stone released the film's long-awaited sequel, "WALL STREET: Money Never Sleeps".
It's been 20+ years since the original and Gordon Gekko has just been released from prison (Bud Fox is reportedly still inside). Shia LeBouf is replacing Charlie Sheen as Gordon's new protege, Jacob Moore (he's also engaged to his daughter), but Financial America has changed (and worsened) dramatically since Gekko's fall. He himself remarks, "I once said Greed Is Good. Now it seems it's legal."
The film opened to rave reviews and topped the box office its first weeks in release.
