Money Never Sleeps For Charlie Sheen

Published 6 years ago by , Updated August 14th, 2013 at 3:28 pm,

Not content with being one of the highest paid actors on television – Charlie Sheen is now set to reprise his role of Bud Fox in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps – the sequel to the Oscar-winning original.

The Two and A Half Men star will film a cameo in the sequel that is set to star the first rate cast of Michael Douglas, Shia LaBeouf, Josh Brolin, Susan Sarandon and Frank Langella.

The film, which starts shooting next week, follows LaBeouf’s Jake Moore as he romances Gordan Gekko’s (Douglas) daughter played by Carey Mulligan.

Alex Young, co-president of production at 20th Century Fox said:

“We sort of started over with the story of a young man who is at the center of it, and how he needs Gordon Gekko’s help to navigate those waters.”

While Stone may have a patchy record (although I do feel that Alexander is highly under-rated and JFK is a masterpiece) I believe that Wall Street 2 just might live up to the iconic and incredibly quotable original. The time is right for the magnifying glass to be placed on world finance and Stone’s critical and paranoid eye might be the right one to be looking through it.

A cameo by Sheen could just be the icing on the cake considering the top tier cast, and it has been a while since Sheen has appeared in a drama (or a good film for that matter).

Could Charlie Sheen be on a Robert Downey Jr.-style career comeback?

Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps is set to hit theaters on April 23, 2010.

  1. I personally love Two and a Half Men, I think the show is great and Charlie does a good job on the show. His acting is nowhere near Downey’s and I highly doubt we would see him back in movies again. He should just stick with the show

  2. I love cameos when they are done well (though that is quite rare) and this promises to be a good one. I doubt it will lead to a revival of Sheen’s movie career however. The part would have to be a bit fleshier than a mere cameo for that.

  3. maybe hugo chavez will make a cameo as well???

  4. The Wild Thang is back! I loved the first movie (Wallstreet) and look forward to this one.

    But Niall, Alexander under-rated? Dude, hand over your critic card. 😛

  5. Lol, yourmediaislosing, I’m sure Alex had a good reason behind this,,, Your jumping to conclusions.
    Sheens great,!!!

    I might see this afterall,,,,

  6. @ Kahless,

    I think that Alexander is a very brave movie. Yes – it’s flawed but I think that Stone attempted something different with the historical epic and Val Kilmer was great in it too!


  7. I don’t think he has any range as an actor beyond the show he is doing. Chavez might be in there somewhere. 😉

  8. This is certainly bizarre! Imho he was amazing acting in Two and a Half Men, but maybe it was due to the fact he was just playing himself:-)
