Sylvester Stallone Makes a Violent Threat in New Tulsa King Clip

Mob boss Sylvester Stallone makes a violent threat in an intense new clip from the crime series Tulsa King. Movie star Stallone makes his starring scripted TV drama debut in the upcoming Paramount+ series from Taylor Sheridan. The highly-anticipated show’s cast also includes Max Casella, Domenick Lombardozzi, Vincent Piazza, Martin Starr, Garrett Hedlund and Dana Delany.

Tulsa King creator Sheridan has of course created his own TV empire in concert with Paramount+, unleashing such series as Yellowstone, Mayor of Kingstown and 1883. A big part of Sheridan’s small-screen success has indeed been achieved through attracting big-screen stars like Kevin Costner, Jeremy Renner and – most notably – Harrison Ford, who is set to star in Sheridan’s other upcoming show 1923. Stallone too could not resist Sheridan’s call, and has signed on for his first-ever significant scripted TV series role in Tulsa King, a crime drama that also boasts The Sopranos’ Terence Winter as showrunner.

A recent teaser trailer actually gave viewers their first look at Stallone as mobster Dwight “The General” Manfredi in Tulsa King. Now Stallone himself has shared a brief clip of his kingpin character showing his violent temper and unleashing some threats as well as some choice language. See the fiery clip in the space below:

Tulsa King’s storyline sees New York mob capo Manfredi getting freed from prison after a 25-year stint and being sent to the relative backwater of Tulsa, Oklahoma to set up a new criminal enterprise. Manfredi must then put together a new crew of morally dubious accomplices to help him set up shop in this unfamiliar environment, It’s indeed a big advantage having Winter onboard the series as showrunner, given his experience dealing with similar mafia characters on HBO’s acclaimed series The Sopranos. It also helps having Sheridan’s magic TV touch involved in bringing Tulsa King to life.

But of course the biggest selling point of Tulsa King has to be the presence of Stallone, an actor who is a legend of the big screen but has never had a significant presence on television or streaming. The above clip suggests that Stallone will be at his most fiery and dramatic playing mobster Manfredi, a big fish in a small and unfamiliar pond. It remains to be seen of course if Stallone’s larger-than-life movie star skills translate successfully to the small screen. But the team behind Tulsa King is surely very impressive and the show looks to be a fine showcase for Stallone as he joins other long-in-the-tooth stars like Costner and Ford in the ever-expanding Sheridan TV universe. Tulsa King hits Paramount+ on November 13, 2022.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
