Zack Sharf Digital News Director Sylvester Stallone appeared on a recent episode of “The Tonight Show” and gave Ryan Gosling his blessing to star as the next Rambo in a potential revival of Stallone’s iconic action franchise. Stallone played the eponymous United States Army Special Forces veteran in five movies. The first “Rambo” opened in 1982.
Stallone presumably said goodbye to the franchise in 2019’s “Rambo: Last Blood.” “I met [Ryan Gosling] at a dinner,” Stallone said when asked why Gosling is his top pick to play a new iteration of Rambo. “Obviously we are opposites. He’s good looking.
I’m not. Seriously! Could you imagine me as Ken? It doesn’t work at all.” “[Ryan] goes, ‘I was fascinated by Rambo and I used to go to school dressed as Rambo and people would chase me away and I still didn’t stop. I’d vacation as Rambo.’ He just kept saying that he had a lot of affiliation with Rambo,” Stallone continued.
“And I thought, you know, this is interesting. If I ever pass the baton, I’ll pass it on to him because he loves the character.” When pressed further about Gosling taking over the iconic action role, Stallone said, “I would say yes but I don’t know if anyone would say, ‘Hey, he’s too good looking to be Rambo.’” Gosling, for what it’s worth, is already an outspoken Rambo fan. The actor appeared on “The Tonight Show” back in 2011 and told then-host Jay Leno that “First Blood,” the first movie to feature Stallone as Rambo, “put a spell on” him so much that he thought he was actually Rambo.

A lot of other people were sort of left behind in this, ’cause this is a huge change, a sea change, in the musical scene.”And Part 3 of “Say It Loud” — which premieres tonight, along with Part 4 — reveals that Brown was “annoyed” about how much disco borrowed from his blueprint.“I’m the one who started disco,” says the Godfather of Soul in the doc.
