15 Multi-Talented Directors Who Starred In Their Own Movies
Sylvester Stallone: Rocky II
It’s hard not to associate Sylvester Stallone with his classic film Rocky, so it’s not incredibly shocking to hear that he not only starred in the following four sequels, but also wrote and directed them. The original sequel, Rocky II, was released in 1979 and received mixed critiques, but soared in terms of box office revenue. Clearly, it did well enough to convince the boxing champ to tag in for more rounds as the acot continues to reprise the role in the Creed series, which he only takes an acting credit for. And who can really blame him for keeping the story going this long? Nothing helps you get up a set of stairs like a little inspiration from Balboa himself.
