Action star Sylvester Stallone is set to team up with British baker Warburtons in a new TV advert, we've learned...
The website Bakery Info (news of which reaches us thanks to Film Divider) has revealed that Sylvester Stallone will be the new face of British bakery firm Warburtons.
"In a power-pairing of bakery meets Hollywood," Bakery Info's Bronya Smolan writes, "the 68-year-old is set to be the face of a new TV advertising campaign, after filming at one of Warburton's bakeries this week."
And there's Sly, posing in a set of Warburton's-themed combat fatigues, and standing in front of a collection of Warburton's vans. The weather is dreary, and so too is Stallone's face.

Remember when Bruce Willis used to make interesting, original movies, like Pulp Fiction, Twelve Monkeys and The Fifth Element? An air of excitement would surround each announcement detailing which project the actor would get involved with next. It’s been some time since that excitement has been felt, however, because Willis has essentially been making the same movie, repeatedly, for years. The next product from that assembly line will be Extraction, directed by Steven C. Miller (Silent Night).
The plot focuses on a father and son duo of – wait for it – CIA agents, with Willis as the seasoned elder operative who is traumatized by the – you guessed it – murder of his wife. His less-experienced CIA operative son is working with him on the manufacture of a super-weapon known as the Condor, but is thrust into the driving seat when his father, Willis, is kidnapped by terrorists. As he realizes that »

Terry Crews might play a tough guy in The Expendables and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but deep down he just likes to giggle at cat videos. Crews, 46, has added another line to his packed résumé: host of Fox's new viral-video show World's Funniest Fails, premiering Friday night. Crews has been obsessing over Internet videos since his daughter Tera, 16, showed him "Scarlet Takes a Tumble" on YouTube. "What happens is, you get in a rabbit hole," he tells People. "All of a sudden, two hours later, you're watching all these videos." When Fox approached him about hosting Fails, Crews said he realized the »

Warning: this article contains Boardwalk Empire spoilers.
When Boardwalk Empire wrapped production last year it wasn’t without disappointment, not least because for some characters there was a sense that things were only just getting started. Chief among those was Charlie ‘Lucky’ Luciano, whose actor, Vincent Piazza, spoke to us about father figures, droopy eyes and reverse-engineering a Sicilian bad boy...
The end of Boardwalk is quite a big one for Charlie. We’ve seen him grow from the impatient young hothead of 1920 to someone a little more world-weary and considered. How did you approach the task of showing that ten-year growth while keeping true to the character?
Thank you for that. It was always the hope that we’d be able to get to the arc where he’s beginning to find »
