Sylvester Stallone is an American actor, film director, screenwriter, producer, and playwright. He is well-known for his Hollywood action roles, including boxer Rocky Balboa in the ‘Rocky’ series, soldier John Rambo in the five ‘Rambo’ films, and mercenary Barney Ross in the three ‘The Expendables’ films. He wrote or cowrote most of the 14 films in all three franchises, and directed many of them.
His film ‘Rocky’ was inducted into the National Film Registry, and had its props placed in the Smithsonian Museum. His use of the front entrance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the Rocky series led the area to be nicknamed the Rocky Steps, and Philadelphia has a statue of his Rocky character placed permanently near the museum. It was announced on December 7, 2010, that he was voted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in the non-participant category.
In 1977, he was nominated for two Academy Awards for ‘Rocky’ : Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor. He became the third man in history to receive these two nominations for the same film, after Charlie Chaplin and Orson Welles. He received positive reviews, as well as his first Golden Globe Award win and a third Academy Award nomination, for reprising the role of Rocky Balboa in Ryan Coogler’s 2015 film ‘Creed’.
