A major action star to this day, Stallone has headlined some the biggest adventure films throughout the past several decades. Viewers will know him best as Rocky Balboa from theRocky film series, and John Rambo from the Rambo film series. But even in his later years, Stallone managed to headline a new action franchise with The Expendables. He proved his acting chops are still there in his award-nominated return to the Balboa role in last year’s fantastically reviewed Rocky spinoff Creed.
Stallone also famously played the comic book hero Judge Dredd in the self-titled 1995 film, but will be adding another superhero film to his resume in Guardian’s of the Galaxy Vol. 2, though his official role hasn’t been revealed. He also lent his voice to the recent animated project Ratchet & Clank.
His other notable roles include Demolition Man, Bullet To The Head, and Escape Plan. Born in New York City, Stallone turns 70 today. Happy birthday, Sylvester Stallone.
Today is actor Karl Urban’s birthday.
A notable face in action and science fiction movies, Urban is best known for his role as Bones in the current Star Trek film series. Urban played Bones in both Star Trek and Star Trek: Into Darkness, and will return to reprise the role in this year’s Star Trek Beyond.
Urban also starred as the popular comic book character Judge Dredd from 2012’sDredd 3D. He has been one of the movie’s biggest supporters and has never stopped talking about bringing a sequel in some form or another to the screen, most recently lobbying for a TV show or miniseries on a streaming service such as Amazon or Netflix.
« Dredd represented a failure in marketing. I saw the tracking of that film weeks before it came out and the fundamental problem was no one knew it was being released, » Urban told Yahoo! News. « Once it came out on DVD and it sold 750,000 copies in the first week alone in North America alone, it was very clear that the audience had discovered it. »
Urban’s other notable roles include the sci-fi TV series Almost Human, Riddick, RED, Pathfinder, and The Chronicles of Riddick. It isn’t clear whether or not he will appear in Vin Diesel’s next Riddick film, which has been teased for some time.
He also played Eomar in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Urban turns 44 today. Happy Birthday, Karl Urban.
