Sylvester Stallone surprised fans Friday morning when he played tourist and paid a visit to the statue immortalizing the “Rocky” character he created and played in the eponymous film series.
The actor/writer/director is in town shooting scenes for his new movie, “Creed II,” which is scheduled for a November release date.
Crowds of people gathered around the iconic statue to catch a glimpse of Stallone, who posed for dozens of photographs, shook hands with fans and greeted Mayor Jim Kenney. Local Stallone impersonator Mike Kunda even got in on the action, and tourists and locals might've thought they were seeing double.
"Creed II" is the sequel to "Creed," and stars Stallone as Rocky Balboa. Michael B. Jordan plays Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky's rival-turned confidant, Apollo Creed.
