This is cool, from Variety:

Frank Langella set for ‘Wall Street 2’
Actor joins LaBeouf, Douglas in Stone sequel

Frank Langella will join the cast of “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps,” the Oliver Stone-directed sequel for 20th Century Fox.

Shia LaBeouf stars with Michael Douglas, who’ll reprise his Gordon Gekko role. Josh Brolin is reportedly circling a part in the Allan Loeb-scripted drama as well.

Langella is in talks to play Lewis Zabel, an old-time broker who mentors LaBeouf’s character, a young Wall Street broker. The mentor’s fate plays a major part in the film’s plot.

It’s Langella’s first role since his Oscar-nominated turn as Richard Nixon in “Frost/Nixon” in 2008.

For those of us hoping Stone gets the sequel right, I’d put this in the column of encouraging news.
