Moviemaker Oliver Stone has cut Donald Trump's cameo from the "Wall Street" sequel - branding the tycoon's appearance "distracting" from the plot. Last November, the real-estate mogul shot a scene with Michael Douglas for "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps", the highly-anticipated sequel to the hit 1987 film.

The scene showed Douglas' ruthless "Wall Street" character Gordon Gekko getting a haircut alongside Trump, who suggests he re-style his hair to look like the mogul's famous comb over. Gekko replies, "No thanks, Donald, I'm a gel man." But Stone decided to leave the shot on the cutting-room floor.

He tells the New York Post, "It'll be on the DVD. 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."
