Creed 2: Milo Ventimiglia – This Is Us – Returns and More from the Set of Creed 2
It’s Friday, do the Friday dance as we say on WOGL every Friday morning after I deliver the breakfast buzz. Today on air we talked about what happened on the set of Creed 2 this week. In case you missed it I’ll go over it again with you:
Earlier this week Creed 2 filmed a few scenes in South Philly at 19th and Porter. The scene had Rocky Balboa arriving in a Vancouver, yes Vancouver, in a Vancouver cab to visit his son Robert Balboa Jr. and his family who now live in the Canadian city.
Better known to this generation as Jack Pearson in the very popular “This Is Us”, Milo Ventimiglia played Rocky’s son in the 2006 Rocky Balboa. The original actor who played Rocky’s son, was Sly Stallone’s own son Sage Stallone
who passed away in 2012. Milo Ventimiglia was also on The Gilmore Girls series in the 00s.
So Philly not only did Jason Kelce get married this past week, but Jack Pearson SLEPT here.
Tuesday Rocky headed to the Laurel Hill Cemetery to visit his corner man and best friend Paulie, who has died in the movie in 2012 the tombstone says (In real life Burt Young is alive and well), and his wife Adrian Balboa. Shortly after Rocky look a like Mike Kunda took this shot, the ground around the tombstones were painted with “white snow” to create a winter scene.
In a sense Creed 2 is tugging at our old school Rocky heartstrings with cameos with Brigitte Nielsen, Milo Ventimiglia in the flesh, and Paulie and Adrian in the spirit. BTW Brigitte and Milo are not listed on the official Creed II IMDB
Wednesday Creed 2 filmed inside The Linc, home of the Superbowl Champions – The Phila Eagles, the scene was the big finale fight held in Moscow. Actors and extras were dressed in very heavy winter clothing, which wasn’t a stretch for us here in Philly during the Winter of 2017 that refuses to end. While on site Sylvester Stallone grabbed a shot with the Lombardi Trophy. They’re back in Sun Center Studios for the next 3 days before they head out again, I hear in the Art Museum area. Stay tuned.

Yesterday Stallone stopped by the Academy of Natural Sciences to the delight of parents, the kids were fascinated by the dinosaurs

Speaking of the Eagles – Monday I did social media around Jason Kelce’s wedding to Kylie McDevitt at the Logan Hotel (I didn’t have time for a proper post). IT BLEW UP, as the day went on I added vendors and additional info to my post on Instagram, and Twitter to the point where nearly all the media in Philly began writing about it, with proper credit to moi which I really appreciate. In hindsight I wish I had done a blog post as my personal SM posts garnered over 100ks views. It’s great I love that everyone was excited about their wedding. I reached out to the official photographer and connected her with the media including Philadelphia Magazine. Here’s the result of PM’s write up which is really indepth – JASON AND KYLIE WEDDING
I have tried to track down the original photographers of the photos that appear on PCC, but I couldn’t find them all as others have posted them on message boards without credit. If one of these shots is yours and you can prove it, I would be happy to give you credit.
