Hollywood actor who ran up Bolton town hall steps to star in reality show
Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone and his family will star in upcoming reality TV series The Family Stallone.
The 76-year-old American actor – a staple of action films including The Expendables, Rocky and Rambo – will let cameras into his home to give a behind-the-scenes look at his life.
Paramount+ announced that Stallone, his wife Jennifer Flavin Stallone and daughters Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet will also star in the eight-part series.
The streaming platform said The Family Stallone will give an insight into the “man, the myth and the legend” as he focuses on “building for the future and raising three independent and ambitious women”.
Stallone came to Bolton to film for a Warburtons advert, in which he recreated the iconic scene out of Rocky as he ran up the town hall steps.
Scarlet, his youngest child, is currently appearing alongside her father in The Tulsa King as she plays a former waitress who looks after his horse as he stars as a mafioso.
Also following Stallone into showbusiness is Sistine, an actress and model who has starred in Midnight In The Switchgrass alongside Megan Fox and Bruce Willis.
She is currently in development on a feature film.
The eldest of the three Stallone sisters, Sophia, is a co-host of the Unwaxed podcast with Sistine and is said to be “still finding her path in life and focusing on her passions”.
In 2017, the trio became Golden Globe Ambassadors, also known as the Miss Golden Globe, which is usually given to the son or daughter of a famous performer.
The matriarch of the family, Stallone’s wife Jennifer, 54 – who was born and raised in LA, is a businesswoman, former model and co-owner of the wellness brand Serious Skin Care.
They married in London in 1997 following them dating, breaking and reconciling for several years in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
In August 2022, she filed for divorce after 25 years of marriage, and according to US outlets they subsequently reconciled a month later.
Stallone was nominated for an Oscar in 1977 for actor in a leading role at the 49th Academy Awards for his portrayal as boxer Rocky Balboa.
He followed this up with six more Rocky films that spanned from 1976 until 2006 and then also appeared as the character in spin-off film Creed, which is directed by Black Panther’s Ryan Coogler.
Stallone has also had five sequels to Rambo, about an United States Army Special Forces soldier of the same name, and four instalments of The Expendables, which has seen Harrison Ford, Jason Statham and Arnold Schwarzenegger play roles.
He also shares two sons with his former wife and photographer Sasha Czack, called Sage Moonblood, an actor who died in 2012 and also starred in Rocky V, and Seargeoh.
The Family Stallone will begin on Paramount+ in the Spring in the US and Canada before being rolled out internationally.
