So the actor told Fox Business Network's Liz Claman just now on the floor at BGC Partners, where he's making trades for their Global Charity Day. He added that he plans on doing some Method training à la Shia LaBeouf at AIG or "wherever they'll have me." So apparently, the HBO version of Andrew Ross Sorkin's book will be as star-studded as Wall Street 2. But will it have a nonessential motorcycle race?

Update Watch the video after the jump. "They look alike, don't they?" Claman says. Crudup tries not to look offended.
