Life is, without a doubt, pretty fucking cool for Michael B. Jordan right now. In addition to the career-defining portrayal of Johnny Storm in this month’s big-budget superhero flick Fantastic Four, opposite Kate Mara and Miles Teller, Jordan recently landed the leading role in Just Mercy, a film that follows an ambitious young lawyer on his mission to fix the country’s criminal justice system. Come November, he’ll star as Sylvester Stallone‘s protégé in the Rocky spin-off Creed.
You know the movie Rocky, I’m sure. You know Sylvester Stallone. But do you know how the film and actor got their start? Did you know that Sly Stallone actually had such little money that he had to sell his dog for $25? The heartbreaking tale has a well-known happy ending (Stallone is a famous actor, producer, and director now of course) but the story is an important one. I love Stallone.
Sylvester Stallone's Story Will Inspire You To Pursue Your Dreams
Sylvester Stallone in Rocky III (1982), in which he gets even more buff than the previous two films to face Mr T in the ring, being trained by his opponent from the first film, Apollo Creed. This is pretty much a watchable time capsule of the 80s to me. (Daniel, C 2013)
