Will Gordon Gekko's Return Match "Fast" Eddie Felson's?
09.22.10 by REELZ
Master of the Universe Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) returns this week in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. In this sequel to Oliver Stone's 1987 classic, Gekko emerges from federal prison and sets about trying to rehabilitate his image and get back in the game. In the process, he takes Jake Moore (Shia LaBeouf), a protégé of sorts, under his wing.
When it comes to returning a character to the big screen decades later, it doesn't get much better than Paul Newman's reprisal of The Hustler's "Fast" Eddie Felson in The Color of Money. In this case, the pool shark brings a young, pompadoured (but pre-Oprah!) Tom Cruise along for the ride.
