A ’70s woman’s wet dream: Henry Winkler and Sylvester Stallone
July 26th, 2023 under Henry Winkler, Sylvester Stallone, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’70s, Henry Winkler and Sylvester Stallone were seen as two of the toughest men in Hollywood. Not only for their 1974 movie The Lords of Flatbush but because of their roles as The Fonz on Happy Days and Rocky, respectively.

I guess that created a bond between them because 50 years later, they still enjoy spending time together. And we enjoy seeing them with huge smiles on their faces.

Am I the only one who wants them star in a buddy retired cop movie? It would literally be a good cop, bad cop scenario, and it would be hysterical.


Paramount+ really likes The Family Stallone
May 24th, 2023 under Paramount+, Sylvester Stallone. [ Comments: none ]

The Family Stallone, a behind-the-scenes look into Sylvester Stallone, his wife Jennifer Flavin Stallone, and daughters Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet, debuted a week ago on Paramount+, and they already picked it up for a second season.

The news is no surprise because, in just one week, it became the streaming service’s #1 reality show premiere. And I am sure it will continue to grow.

I mean, Stallone has been a knockout since Rocky. Oh, wait, he wasn’t knocked out in that film. But you know what I was going for.

In case you missed last week’s premiere, you can watch it now, along with the second episode.


Sylvester Stallone is doing a reality show with his family

Out of all of the celebrities that I would ever expect to do a reality show, Sylvester Stallone would be towards the bottom. But he is doing one with his wife, Jennifer Flavin Stallone, and daughters Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet. And The Family Stallone is going to debut on May 17th on Paramount+.

After playing some of the most legendary characters in cinematic history, three-time Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone is ready to give cameras access to what he would consider the greatest role of his lifetime: Dad. This new series starring Stallone’s three daughters, wife, and himself offers a seat at the table of one of Hollywood’s most famous families.

I never thought that he would do a reality show. But then again, I didn’t think he could do Comedy, and Oscar is one of my favorite films. So he is always surprising us.

And I have a feeling we will all be surprised by how good The Family Stallone is.


Sylvester Stallone was told he wasn’t Italian enough for The Godfather
November 17th, 2022 under Sylvester Stallone. [ Comments: none ]

Even though Sylvester Stallone starred as The Italian Stallion in 1970, he was told he was not Italian enough to be an extra for the wedding scene in The Godfather.

Did he fuhgeddaboudit and the people that didn’t cast him? No! Did he get revenge? Hell, yes!

Stallone told Jessica Shaw on her SiriusXM radio show that 35 years later, he hired the person who told him that. And then he spent every day asking his employee if he was Italian enough now.

While that was that guy, what about Francis Ford Coppola? Stallone got his revenge on the director before the ’70s ended. And his story takes the cake…literally.

It was the late ’70s, and Stallone was riding high from Rocky winning Best Picture at the Oscars. Coppola was working on a movie called Apocalypse Now and needed a leading man. The actor was brought in to meet with him.

He gets to the director’s office at noon and waits to see him. However, the clock keeps moving, but Stallone is stuck waiting to see him. He thinks maybe if he shows the director a picture of him with Copolla’s sister, Talia Shire, who played Adrienne, it will help get him seen. But it didn’t work.

When 5:15p rolls around, a hungry Stallone is pissed and goes into the coffee room. That is where he sees a 7-layer jelly cake, and it looked scrumptious. Just as he was going to take some, he noticed a toothpick with a flag on it that read, “Hands off! Property of Francis.”

What does he do next? Stallone went all Rocky on the cake and smashed it like it was Apollo Creed’s face. And then he left the office covered in cake.

How did Copolla react? He called up Stallone screaming. He was so mad. Actually, the Oscar winner went so berzerk that he threw his statuette out the window.

Obviously, Stallone didn’t get the part, and he is OK with that. That is because he heard it was a hard production to work on.

And it all worked out in the end. Stallone did his own war film. You might’ve heard of it; it is called Rambo. I would rather watch that any day over Apocalypse Now.

So the moral of the story is never tell an Italian from Hell’s Kitchen; he is not Italian enough if you want to have your cake and eat it too.


Sylvester Stallone is going to be a the King of television
October 16th, 2022 under Paramount+, Sylvester Stallone. [ Comments: none ]

Sylvester Stallone is doing something he hasn’t ever done before in his nearly 50-year career. He is going to star in a television series. And I am all for it after watching the above trailer.

TULSA KING follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Stallone) just after he is released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla. Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a “crew” from a group of unlikely characters, helping establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet.

The series debuts November 13th on Paramount+ and will stream a new episode weekly.
