Frank Stallone

Biography: Although KO'd by critics and audiences alike as an actor, Frank Stallone has rolled with the punches over the years. As a singer, composer, guitarist and musician, however, he has received more courteous reviews. His interest in music stems from childhood. Born July 30, 1950 in New York City and an amateur boxer in his salad days, Frank's big break coincided with that of his lookalike older brother, writer/actor Sylvester Stallone, who became a blockbuster star with the Cinderfella-like success of his legendary boxing film Rocky (1976). Frank appeared briefly and wrote and performed the song "Take You Back" a capella on a street corner. Frank continued to benefit with brother Sly's monumental success with additional singing appearances in Paradise Alley (1978) and Rocky II (1979). This culminated with the Sly-directed film _Stayin' Alive (1983)_ , the sequel to Saturday Night Fever (1977) starring John Travolta as (again) Tony Manero. Frank wrote (along with The Bee Gees) manyAlthough KO'd by critics and audiences alike as an actor, Frank Stallone has rolled with the punches over the years.

Frank wrote (along with The Bee Gees) many of the songs from its soundtrack and was nominated for both Grammy and Golden Globe awards for one of them, entitled "Life Goes On." Frank tried to branch out and moved boldly into the acting ring in the mimd-1980s, primarily in crime and action-oriented vehicles, but most of his films such as The Pink Chiquitas (1987), Outlaw Force (1987) and Lethal Games (1990) were harshly reviewed and customarily dismissed. Some of his better roles actually came in support, such as the brute-like bartender in Barfly (1987) which paired Mickey Rourke with Faye Dunaway as big-time boozers, and his role as Alvin Karpis in the gangster movie Public Enemies (1996). Spending a lifetime trying to escape from under his brother's shadow, Frank refocused on his music, now traveling and touring with the sound of 'big band' jazz. A noted boxing historian and collector, Frank more recently served as a boxing authority and consultant for his brother's TV reality show "The Contender" (2005). Expand
