Sylvester Stallone is an American actor and filmmaker primarily known for two of his best roles, boxer Rocky Balboa from the top grossing ‘Rocky’ series (1976-2015, seven films) and Vietnam War veteran John Rambo from the ‘Rambo’ series (1982-2008, four films). Starting his career with an adult film out of desperation, he featured in several minor roles before achieving success with the 1976 sports drama film ‘Rocky’, which won an ‘Academy Award’ and earned him a nomination for ‘Best Actor’.
Riding on the success of the film, he debuted as a director in ‘Paradise Alley’ (1978) and the following year wrote, directed and starred in the ‘Rocky II’. In 1982, he launched the Rambo series with the action-war film ‘First Blood’. However, after many of his macho-films, like ‘Cobra’ (1986), ‘Over the Top’ (1987) and ‘Tango & Cash’ (1989), failed to impress fans, he tried his luck with comedy in ‘Oscar’ and ‘Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot’, both of which were failures.
He later revived both the series with new successful films: ‘Rocky Balboa’ (2006) and ‘Creed’ (2015); and ‘Rambo' (2008). His recent best films are from the ensemble cast ‘The Expendables’ series (2010-14), and ‘Escape Plan’ (2013).
