The Hollywood Wannabes List is Out

It includes Warren Buffett, Nouriel Roubini and David Koch's wife.

NyPo explains:

Donald Trump, you're fired -- from this cut, at least.

The real-estate mogul was one of many prominent locals who filmed cameos for "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," which premieres tomorrow at The Ziegfeld, but The Donald's big scene was left on the cutting-room floor.

"It'll be on the DVD," director Oliver Stone says. "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."

The scene, shot last November at Tommy Guns Salon on Ludlow Street, shows Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) and Trump in adjoining barber chairs. Trump suggests Gekko get his hair done a la Trump. Gekko replies, "No thanks, Donald, I'm a gel man."

Sources say Donald Marron (Lightyear Capital) and Lord William Astor, the stepfather-in-law of British Prime Minister David Cameron, also didn't make the final cut. But plenty of other New Yorkers did.

Publicist Peggy Siegal -- who has a cameo as the wife of Chuck Pfeifer, who was in the original "Wall Street" -- reports Vanity Fair's Graydon Carter has a scene in Shun Lee on West 65th Street: "Playing himself, Graydon sashays by the table. Gekko jumps up to say hello and Graydon brushes him off with a few dismissive lines."

Thomas Belesis (John Thomas Financial) has a significant part in the film, as does John Buffalo Mailer, son of Norman Mailer.

Wall Streeters will spot Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway), Jim Chanos (Kynikos Associates), Vince Farrell (Soleil Securities), Anthony Scaramucci (Skybridge Capital), Thomas M. Joyce (Knight Capital) and economist Nouriel Roubini (a k a "Dr. Doom").

Socialites will notice Julia Koch, Susan Hess, Grace Meigher, Kelly Klein, Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, Hamish Bowles, Mario Platero, Christopher Mason, Yanna Avis, Monique van Vooren and the director's mother, Jacqueline Stone.
I wonder if Julia plays a Coordinated Problematic economist?
