That’s right folks. Sylvester Stallone is heading to TV… To play himself.
According to E!, Stallone will be guest starring on NBC’s This Is Us, and apparently, it’s all due to Milo Ventimiglia.
Milo is quoted saying the following:
“He always reaffirmed call me if you need anything. I basically called and said here’s something that might be fun and I’m sorry that you and I aren’t going to get a lot of screen time together, but I want you to know how much this impacts my character,” Ventimiglia said. “If you imagine that Sylvester Stallone is Kevin’s movie idol, it’s got to come from somewhere. Maybe that was his dad’s movie idol? Maybe dad goes through some tough times and always goes back to that underdog story of the first Rocky, so I think seeing the parallels and all that.”
It looks like Stalone had fun on set too, as he posted a ton of pictures on his Instagram:
Who ever thought that Sly was fond of taking selfies, let alone being on a Prime Time Drama?
This Is Us will air starting Tuesday, September 26 at 9PM – but it’s unclear when Stallone’s episode will air.
If Amy Cooper were a jelly doughnut, she would be a ‘Sarcasm-filled Doughnut.’
