Stone Cut Trump's 'Distracting' Wall Street Cameo

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 (09), 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."
