‘Wall Street 2′ Cast Praise Ailing Co-Star Michael Douglas

The cast of Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps wished all the best for star Michael Douglas at the NASDAQ today where they were ringing the bell. Douglas, who recently was diagnosed with cancer, did not attend. It marked one of the first promotional appearances Douglas has missed out on even after learning of his illness.

“He’s put himself out there, he’s not isolating,” Josh Brolin said. “It’s been a tough chapter in his life and dealing with it amazingly.”

“It’s a battle,” director Oliver Stone said, “but … he’s fighting it. There’s going to be damage, whatever
happens. He’s got a great spirit, but he needs his friends around him for support now.”
