Moviemaker Oliver Stone has cut Donald Trump’s cameo from the Wall Street sequel – branding the tycoon’s appearance “distracting” from the plot.
Last November, the real-estate mogul shot a scene with Michael Douglas for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, the highly-anticipated sequel to the hit 1987 film.

The scene showed Douglas’ ruthless Wall Street character Gordon Gekko getting a haircut alongside Trump, who suggests he re-style his hair to look like the mogul’s famous comb over. Gekko replies, “No thanks, Donald, I’m a gel man.”

But Stone decided to leave the shot on the cutting-room floor.

He tells the New York Post, “It’ll be on the DVD. I only cut it because it was distracting. He was at the end of the movie and all of sudden, ‘Hey, there’s Donald Trump!’ Structurally, I think we put him in too late.”
