Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay seem unable to name more than one twentysomething actor between them, so we’re not sure why we expected any better from Oliver Stone. And now the director of Wall Street is in talks with Shia LaBeouf to star in the sequel, says Variety! Apparently there is truly only one 22-year-old guy in Hollywood capable of toplining an ill-advised sequel. Anyway, LaBeouf would reportedly be cast opposite a returning Michael Douglas’s Gordon Gekko in a young-trader role similar to the one Charlie Sheen played in 1987. But will LaBeouf’s crazy, real-life carnie father play his movie dad, like Martin Sheen in the first Wall Street?
