Michael Douglas on His Son: 'He's in a Safe Place'

Actor Michael Douglas is excited about his new film, the sequel, "Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps," but there was plenty of drama during the shooting of the film, having to cope with his son Cameron's felony drug bust and subsequent sentencing to five years in prison.

"He's in a safe place," Douglas told "Extra" at the junket at the Cannes Film Festival. "We're moving on."

"Wall Street 2's" Shia LaBeouf admits his co-star had a tough time. "He was a fractured man, his pain translated into our movie."

Douglas does say he's a little nervous about reprising his role as finance king Gordon Gekko.

"I won an Oscar for this role. It's all downhill!," he joked.

And what does Douglas' wife Catherine Zeta-Jones think about Douglas' return as the manipulative Gekko? "She's just happy I'm working again," the actor smiles.
