Stallone has been in town a few weeks now as he is working on the movie Creed. Creed will tell the story of Apollo Creed’s grandson (played by
Michael B Jordan), who decides to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and
become a professional boxer. At first he was prepping for the movie Creed at Dive in Old City. Now the movie has started to film. In the evening Stallone has been making the rounds to some of Philly’s most delicious dining spots.
He’s gone to Estia,
He’s gone to D’Angelo’s in Rittenhouse Square.
He’s even gone to the top of the Rocky stairs where these lucky tourists caught up with him.
. Andre S.O.G. Ward Two-time Super Middleweight World Champion, 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist has been tapped to be in the movie.
Fans are always writing me, where can I find him. For the past two days Creed has been filming in West Philly. Then I hear it’s back to the Boxing Studio for him. It seems that he’s not in any of the scenes being filmed yet, but he is a producer of the movie, and that’s why he’s on set, and why he could fly to France last week to film a commercial for a bread that he is an official spokesperson for.
To Meet Sly Stallone I would just stake out the film set at the boxing studio, or any one of the Italian restaurants in the City. I think he’ll go to Ralph’s next. Thoughts? Follow @Iphillychitchat for the latest news. Also read Molly Eichel’s column for an awesome story in today’s paper about Sly stopping by to see his boyhood home. That was cool.

BLIZZARD OF 2015, never happened and I didn’t get any SNOW PHOTOS. So I reached back two years in my archives and decided to post a few of my favorite shots. Hope you enjoy them. I have two columns that should post today on Philly Mag, Indochino and The Marc Vetri Cocktail Party. I’ll tweet them out when they go live. Thanks. HughE
I basically bum-rushed the elevator, he’s
surrounded by security who (of course) immediately want me removed. Al
told them to relax. I said “Al, I’m not into selfies, I’d rather have a
real photo” threw his one (large) security guy my phone. Al’s quote “I
agree about selfies, they breed vanity.” What a guy. Unforgettable! – Peter Madden, Agile Cat
