Michael Douglas might play an evil, money-grubbing megalomaniac who led protégé Charlie Sheen to his demise in "Wall Street," but the role snagged him an Oscar (and later he married Catherine Zeta-Jones!).
So it's no wonder Shia LaBeouf signed on for the sequel as an apprentice of sorts to the morally corrupt, financial high-roller. The guy has to be doing something right, and the rewards are well worth the risk.
In this exclusive deleted scene from "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," LaBeouf proves he learned from the best when it comes to the cutthroat business of high finance. You can practically see the gears in his head turn when the "Transformers" star sees an angle he's trying to play (even if it's on relatively high moral ground concerning a renewable energy investment).
We would expect nothing less from Gordon Gekko's next-in-line. Check it out:
