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.

Before Sylvester Stallone was a respectable actor, he starred in the unrespectable film The Party at Kitty and Stud’s. We all have to start somewhere, and that is how the 22-year-old got his start in that 1970 film.

Megan Fox is an action star, thanks to movies like Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but we forget that because she is so beautiful.

While we forgot that, Sylvester Stallone did not. That is why he cast her and 50 Cent for Expandables 4. They will be joined by Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, and Randy Couture, who are returning for the fourth film, according to IGN.

Fox is the first actress to lead the franchise since Charisma Carpenter was in the first two films. She was replaced by wrestler Ronda Rousey in the third film.

Sylvester Stallone is a beauty school drop out
September 20th, 2019 under Ryan Seacrest, Sylvester Stallone. [ Comments: none ]


Sylvester Stallone was on Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning and he told Ryan Seacret what he did before he was an actor. Before he got his big break, my alma mater, the Unversity of Miami, broke up with him. Without any goals, his family wanted him to get into their business which is full of beauticians.

Even though he did not have the hands for it, he still went to beauty school like his family wanted to. He tried, but his fingers and attitude were not right for it.

Therefore, he dropped out and went into acting. After that, you know what happened.

If he had not failed out, could you imagine his paws working their magic in your hair? I can’t.
