Stallone: Action Genre Is 'Fading Away'

Jason Merritt/Getty Images for Hollywood Awards(LOS ANGELES) -- Making no bones about his own creaking bones and the passing of time, Sylvester Stallone calls aging action stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger and himself, "old war horses" in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"This genre unfortunately is becoming…let's just say it's fading away," Sly said. "You have the superheroes today which are possessed with all extraordinary powers...And then you have a bunch of us which is just your basic male-pattern badness."

Stallone, whose Expendables 2 brings back Ah-nuld as well as a number of one-time cinematic superstars like Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme, opens on August 17. He admits he was once "competitive" with Schwarzenegger regarding their action hero status. "A little alpha territorial," the former Rocky star says. "And then we realised it was good for our careers [to work together]."

The pair appeared together onscreen briefly in 2010's The Expendables, but that role was just a cameo for the former Terminator star. The sequel expands his role, and the pair fully team up in the prison break-out movie The Tomb, which they're currently filming.

Sporting grey hair and a grey goatee, Schwarzenegger tells ET, "We worked really well together. The funny thing is we have tried, I think, our entire careers to always work together. We have talked about it for three decades and it never happened. I think we tried maybe too hard...But now after the governorship, somehow this just fell into place."

Schwarzenegger, Stallone: Friends Who Have Surgery Together

Arnold Schwarzenegger/WhoSay.com(LOS ANGELES) -- Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone have starred in movies together and gone into business together, so why not have surgery together?

The aging action heroes recently found themselves at the same hospital, where they were both scheduled for shoulder surgery.

Schwarzenegger, 64, posted a picture of him and Stallone, 65, lying gurney-to-gurney on his WhoSay blog as he explained: “After all the action, stunts & physical abuse shooting The Expendables 2 and The Last Stand, it was time for a little tune up on my shoulder. Look who was coincidentally waiting in line behind me for his shoulder surgery. Now we’re ready for another round of great times and action when we shoot The Tomb.”

The old friends are scheduled to shoot The Tomb later this year. They will also reprise their roles in The Expendables 2, with fellow over-the-hill action stars Chuck Norris, 71, Bruce Willis, 56, Dolph Lundgren, 54, Jean-Claude Van Damme, 51, and Jet Li, 48.

Judge: Pudding Lawsuit Against Stallone to Continue

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The inventor of a pudding for bodybuilders is suing actor Sylvester Stallone, claiming that the actor and another man stole a pudding recipe and then marketed it as their own.

William Brescia has filed a lawsuit against Stallone and John Arnold, claiming that the two misappropriated trade secrets. Stallone's lawyers had asked that the suit be dismissed, however, a judge ruled on Thursday that suit proceedings will continue.

Brescia claims that he began developing the pudding recipe in 1999, and that Stallone promised to use his financial resources to market and produce the product while putting his company’s name on the product. Brescia’s court papers claim that advertisements for the product bore the words “Sylvester Stallone Low Carb Pudding.”

Stallone is a former executive of the company Instone, which was previously found liable in the case. Instone’s marketing executive Keith Angelin and food scientist Christopher Scinto were found liable to Brescia to the tune of $4.9 million, leading to Angelin and Scinto eventually settling out of court with Brescia.
