Gekko’s encore: Guess what role he’ll play this time?


Gordon Gekko, the infamous character portrayed in an Oscar-winning turn by Michael Douglas in the 1987 movie “Wall Street,” will be returning to the screen in a sequel. Gekko, who gave the world such phrases as “lunch is for wimps” and “money never sleeps,” will reportedly return as a hedge fund manager – not a great stretch, as his modus operandi in the original film, then called corporate raiding, might today be deemed activist investing.
