Born in New York, Sylvester Stallone has, and still is playing a big role in acting, producing, writing and directing movies.
His biggest roles feature the likes of iconic boxer Rocky Balboa in the Rocky series, John Rambo in the Rambo series, and his portrayal of comic book character Judge Dredd in 1995’s film by the same name.
There are entire decades of his acting career behind him, but the 70 year old is still going strong on all fronts. Last year he directed, starred and produced the Rocky spin-off Creed, which was warmly received by fans and critics alike. In addition, the last decade saw him create a highly successful action franchise with The Expendables, featuring young and veteran action stars of several generations. Among them you can find the likes of Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Dolf Lundgren and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Stallone recently lent his voice to the Ratchet & Clank animated film, and is also set to feature in Guardians of The Galaxy vol.2 in a yet unknown capacity.
To many more years of creativity and work! Happy Birthday Mr. Stallone!
