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.”February 26, 2016 at 2:36 pm #218386
I dont really see him having a Michael Keaton like comeback, even if he wins. I could see him doing a TV show though

He should retire tbh.February 26, 2016 at 4:01 pm #218388
Over.February 26, 2016 at 4:03 pm #218389
Creed sequels obviously. Maybe a baity role or two but that’s about it.February 26, 2016 at 4:50 pm #218390
Tv? No. He has more than enough money to not go that route in the next 150 years. Creed sequels? Maybe.February 26, 2016 at 5:11 pm #218391
We all know nothing is going to change.February 26, 2016 at 6:46 pm #218392
Honestly he can go back to winning Razzies and making money. I like him, but there’s not much ‘there’ there.February 26, 2016 at 6:59 pm #218393
The same as it’s been for several decades.

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.)February 26, 2016 at 9:01 pm #218395
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.February 26, 2016 at 11:57 pm #218396
Career Oscar wins are about closing a chapter not starting a new one.February 27, 2016 at 6:18 am #218397
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.February 27, 2016 at 7:36 am #218398
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.
