Sly vs Ali

The March 21, 2003 issue of Entertainment Weekly contains an article entitled “Oscars 20 Most Memorable Moments.” The picture to the left and following text appear in it.
1977 A long-shot Best Actor nominee for the boxing drama Rocky, Sylvester Stallone probably wasn’t expecting any golden trophies. He definitely wasn’t expecting to be joined on stage by heavyweight champ Muhammad Ali. “I’m the real Apollo Creed!” Ali exclaims, pseudo-sparring with the Italian Stallion. “Show me what you can really do!”

Sly and Harry

HARRY KNOWLES is the man behind the Ain’t It Cool News website. Over the years he has got to meet many, many stars. He’s been flown to locations to be on set during filming and he’s been wined and dined at movie premieres. Until today I’ve never really been envious. Today HARRY spent time on the set of “Spy Kids III” with SYLVESTER STALLONE! Not only did HARRY get to hang out with SLY for about five hours. but he also got to watch filming with his good buddy ROBERT RODRIGUEZ! For full details click [HERE].

Rambo Trilogy Action Figures

“Slmboyross” posted a link at the StalloneZone message board to some very cool photos of a trio of Rambo Action figures that are scheduled for release later this year. Mirage Toys which is an off-shoot of N2 Toys [which went out of business] is set to release a Rambo figure based on the character as he looked from each of the Rambo films. It’s a cool idea and the figures look like winners.
