CNBC Stars Play Prominent Role in 20th Century Fox’s ‘Wall Street 2′

Wall-Street-2092210.jpgWhile certain executives at News Corp. may not agree, it is obvious that at the moment, the top business news channel on Wall Street is CNBC.

With that in mind director Oliver Stone prominently features the network’s anchors prominently in the upcoming sequel to his 1987 film “Wall Street.” This despite the fact that the film is produced by the 20th Century Fox film studio, a sister company to Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.

Indeed, Friedman notes that early on in the film, Bartiromo appears in a scene where she interviews Michael Douglas‘ character from the film, Gordon Gekko.
