Frank Langella's having a better Friday than you are

May 14, 2010 | 10:21 am

Langella4-web To mark this Friday, we're living vicariously through actor Frank Langella, who appears to be enjoying himself completely in Cannes, France.

The "Frost/Nixon" Oscar nominee is of course at the Cannes International Film Festival, where he's promoting "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" with costars Michael Douglas, Josh Brolin, Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan, and director Oliver Stone.

The film, which premieres Friday night out of competition at the festival, is "undeniably fun and slick," 24 Frames reports, "and establishes enough continuity to the '80s story line without forcing in (too many) artificial connections."

We can only imagine Langella's much happier to be an actor in Cannes in the sun than an investment banker in New York taking a fall -- the character he plays in the sequel to Stone's 1987 film "Wall Street." The rest of the posse were in good spirits as well; check for more pictures after the break -- and for a photo gallery from Cannes, click here.]
