Sylvester Stallone’s Latest Ventures: Movies and TV Series

Sylvester Stallone established himself as a dramatic talent in 1976 when he wrote and starred in the boxing classic, Rocky. After seemingly coming out of nowhere, Stallone found himself receiving heaps of critical praise. In 1977, he was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role opposite the likes of Robert De Niro, and Peter Finch. Furthermore, he was also nominated for Best Original Screenplay.

After the glaring success of Rocky, Sylvester Stallone transitioned into more of an action star. However, in 1997 he decided to showcase his dramatic ability in the crime drama, Cop Land. Stallone famously took a huge pay cut for the movie and gained a significant amount of weight. However, as he divulged on The Unwaxed Podcast, this career move would put him on bad terms with many studios in Hollywood, who no longer wanted to pay him big money for roles. As a result, Stallone fell off the radar for the majority of the early 2000s. However, in 2006, he made an epic resurgence with Rocky Balboa. Since then, Stallone has continued to climb and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
