Reality Bites

Michael Douglas was at the United Nations today urging the United States and eight other holdout nations to ratify a nuclear test ban treaty.

But he couldn’t control the subject, as when a reporter asked him about the financial crisis and whether “greed is not good,” a reference to the Gordon Gekko character he played in “Wall Street.”

“I’m not saying that,” Douglas replied, per the AP. “And my name is not Gordon. He’s a character I played 20 years ago.”
