No corner of Wall Street is truly important until Hollywood actors play its heroes and villains. Corporate raiders have 'Wall Street', mortgage-backed securities sparked 'Margin Call', commodities dominate 'Trading Places' and stock brokers star in 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

Bloomberg News reports that now there’s competition to be the first Academy Award winner to play Bernie Madoff, mastermind of the world’s biggest Ponzi scheme.

Richard Dreyfuss has agreed to star in a four-hour ABC miniseries, according to a person at the network who asked not to be identified discussing casting decisions. A project starring Robert De Niro announced in 2011 is still in development at HBO, two people there said.
