    Whether or not he wins, it’ll be interesting to see what Sylvester Stallone makes of his cinematic comeback. Now that he has reminded the industry that there’s a real actor in there underneath all those ill-fated action movies and sequels, I could see him starting a new chapter of his career as a kind of character actor. Or maybe even a Jonathan Banks-style supporting role in a prestige TV drama.

    Hopefully not “The Expendables 7.”

    I dont really see him having a Michael Keaton like comeback, even if he wins. I could see him doing a TV show though

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Tv? No. He has more than enough money to not go that route in the next 150 years. Creed sequels? Maybe.

    Honestly he can go back to winning Razzies and making money. I like him, but there’s not much ‘there’ there.

    The same as it’s been for several decades.

    Multi-Generationally Successful.

    Put THAT in your pipe, and smoke it.

    I could see him on a TV show. (not the lead though) Some kind of ensemble show or supporting role like Tom Selleck is doing.)

    Probably (and hopefully) nonexistent. His performance in Creed shouldn’t have been nominated and he wasn’t even the best in his film. He has no range, whatsoever. Unfortunately, a performer’s narrative speaks louder than the merits of their performance.

    Career Oscar wins are about closing a chapter not starting a new one.

    I’d imagine that this is only a blip on Stallone’s radar, meaning after the Oscar win, it’s back to making schlock for the masses. I doubt he retires until he absolutely has to. But you know there’s going to be a “Creed 2” at some point, so there’s that. He’s writing and directing another “Rambo” installment, which could be huge. Television is interesting. No reason why he can’t do a “limited series” of some sort on HBO/Showtime/Netflix/Amazon/Hulu/f[X], but would he accept the “demotion.” It’s certainly all the rave now. I don’t need to see him headline anything, but a juicy supporting role somewhere could be cool. Someone mentioned a Jonathan Banks-like presence on a series, which is perfect. If he plays this right, the sky’s the limit.

    Yeah, I don’t anticipate Stallone suddenly emerging a “serious” actor post-Oscar victory. In the Stallone filmography, pictures like “Creed” and “Cop Land” are awfully rare. “Rambo” and “Expendable” sequels are indeed already on the horizon, ditto a probable “Creed” follow-up which, let’s face it, probably won’t be as fantastic as its precedessor. I don’t see him going the TV route. I actuallycan fathom a good director bringing him aboard a picture in a Supporting role but, yeah, for the most part, it’ll be back to B-movies. Which I’m sure he’s just fine with.
