25 Years Later: “How Much Is Enough?” The Cast Of 1987 Oscar-Winning Wall Street—Where Are They Now?
“How much is enough?” “It's not a question of enough, pal. It's a zero sum game, somebody wins, somebody loses.“ It’s been 25 years since Oliver Stone’s Wall Street opened in theaters, but Gordon Gekko’s words still ring true for “yuppies” and viewers alike. The game is greed, the stakes are high and Buddy Fox risks a lot more than his name to beat a Wall Street vet like Gordon Gekko. Buddy learns that in order to skyrocket to the top, someone has to take the hit. Snakkle looks back on the amazing cast of Wall Street, including Michael Douglas who won an Oscar for playing Gordon Gekko, and finds out where they are now!By Brittany Carson
1987 was a good year for Michael Douglas. He’d achieved commercial success with the 1984 romantic comedy Romancing The Stone, but scoring Wall Street and Fatal Attraction in the same year? Douglas was worth his weight in Oscar gold. He starred alongside Sharon Stone in the iconic Basic Instinct in 1992 and even reprised his old Gordon Gekko character again in 2010 for the sequel movie Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Douglas was diagnosed with an aggressive form of throat cancer in 2010 and is still in treatment. He lives with wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones and their two children.
