The noted investor has finally-- finally!-- weighed in on the Goldman charges.

Following a screening in New York City last night of the new burlesque documentary, “Behind the Burly Q,” actor Michael Douglas had a reunion with his “Basic Instinct” co-star Sharon Stone at a dinner at 21 Club. Naturally, Speakeasy had to ask the man who played Gordon Gekko in the movie “Wall Street” and the coming sequel “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” what he thought of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s securities-fraud case against Goldman Sachs.

“Well it’s a little early to say. I don’t think it’s over yet,” Douglas said. “But I think, ‘How embarrassed is the SEC?’ … There’s got to be more thorough investigations here. And I think there are probably going to be other situations coming out. Who knows?”
