(born July 30, 1950, New York City, New York) is an American actor, singer and songwriter who appeared as Frank Mosca's right-hand man Billy in the episode "Blood and Roses" of the series Miami Vice.His other albums and singles never approached so high again.1: One of the most interesting Rocky facts was that Susan Sarandon auditioned for the role of Adrian. Her hesitation and behavior was actually such an improvement over the scripted scene that they decided to keep it. Talia Shire had contracted the flu and was worried about getting Stallone sick, so she was very hesitant to kiss him.
Once ‘synonymous with blunt-force trauma’ (his words), the actor has for the past two months been the toast of Hollywood thanks to an impressive performance in Creed – the seventh film in the Rocky franchise, in which Balboa turns trainer to Michael B Jordan’s newcomer, Adonis Johnson.
A few years later, Stallone went to live with his mother and her second husband in Philadelphia.
There he attended a special high school for troubled youth.
Like Warhol, I say, gesturing at the two silk-screen portraits of the actor hanging on the adjacent wall. Or at least they shouldn’t ever admit to it, even to themselves.
And from the canvas hanging in the entrance hall, I’m guessing he’s a Miró fan? But this is Stallone: one of very few Hollywood legends capable of setting off that adolescent ‘I can’t believe I’m standing here’ ticker tape inside your head.
