Frank Langella (“Superman Returns,” “Frost/Nixon”) has joined the cast of “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” for 20th Century Fox reports Variety.

Langella is in talks to play Lewis Zabel, an old-time broker who mentors Shia LaBeouf’s character, a young Wall Street broker. The mentor’s fate plays a major part in the film’s plot.

The Oliver Stone-directed, Allan Loeb-penned sequel also stars Michael Douglas reprising his Gordon Gekko role. Josh Brolin and Carey Mulligan have been circling the project as well.
