Have you always wondered what Sylvester Stallone's version of Beverly Hills Cop looked like? Or how about which Rocky film he considers to be a personal favorite? Perhaps you'd like to know whether Sly kisses on the first date, and if flannel pajamas are reserved only for special occasions -- like the kind that occur when no one else is home and Lifetime is airing a really sweet original film. Okay, while those Lifetime kisses aren't on the agenda, AICN has kicked off its twenty days of Sylvester Stallone questions -- yes, for twenty days they'll be asking Rambo a slew of user-submitted questions, most of which are pretty damn interesting.
Say what you want about the guy, he's been around for a long time, starred in some classic films and has a lot to get off his chest. Tonight I'm checking out Rocky Balboa, and seeing as I've always been a huge Rocky fan, I'm about as excited as one can get to see a flick. Of course, once the movie begins, I will have to switch over to my critic hat (a darling little piece I found in the bargain bin at Wal-Mart) -- but, for the next few hours, I'll be playing some Eye of the Tiger to get in the mood. Anyway, if you're a huge Stallone fan, there's still some time left to submit your own questions through AICN -- who claim to have received over 40,000 so far. Geez.
A few interesting tidbits that have come up: Mr.T and Ivan Drago will have cameos in Rocky Balboa, but Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) is absent because he wanted way too much money for a three-second appearance. Rambo IV will not be called In the Serpent's Eye -- instead the current title is Pearl of the Cobra. Stallone is interested in voicing a character in The Incredibles sequel and there's a whole lot of stuff regarding his feature film about poet Edgar Allan Poe.
