NEW YORK (AP) - Michael Douglas has channeled the confidence of ruthless corporate raider Gordon Gekko while walking the red carpet at the New York City premiere of his latest film, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”

The Academy Award-winning actor recently announced he’s being treated for throat cancer. He posed for photos Monday night with co-stars including Shia LaBeouf (SHY’-uh luh-BUF’) and Carey Mulligan and director Oliver Stone. He didn’t give interviews.

LaBeouf calls the 65-year-old Douglas a “wolf.” He notes Douglas showed no signs of weakness while making the “Wall Street” sequel, which opens Friday.

Stone says “it’s a struggle” and “it’s tough,” but Douglas is “fighting.”

Stone also directed the original “Wall Street” in 1987. The movie featured Charlie Sheen as a stockbroker hungry for success. Douglas won an Oscar for playing Gekko.
