Sylvester Stallone Makes a Violent Threat in New Tulsa King Clip

Published

on

A very angry Sylvester Stallone makes violent threats in a new clip from the upcoming Paramount+/Taylor Sheridan gangster series Tulsa King.

Mob boss Sylvester Stallone makes a violent threat in an intense new clip from the crime series Tulsa King. Movie star Stallone makes his starring scripted TV drama debut in the upcoming Paramount+ series from Taylor Sheridan. The highly-anticipated show’s cast also includes Max Casella, Domenick Lombardozzi, Vincent Piazza, Martin Starr, Garrett Hedlund and Dana Delany.

Tulsa King creator Sheridan has of course created his own TV empire in concert with Paramount+, unleashing such series as Yellowstone, Mayor of Kingstown and 1883. A big part of Sheridan’s small-screen success has indeed been achieved through attracting big-screen stars like Kevin Costner, Jeremy Renner and – most notably – Harrison Ford, who is set to star in Sheridan’s other upcoming show 1923. Stallone too could not resist Sheridan’s call, and has signed on for his first-ever significant scripted TV series role in Tulsa King, a crime drama that also boasts The Sopranos’ Terence Winter as showrunner.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

A recent teaser trailer actually gave viewers their first look at Stallone as mobster Dwight “The General” Manfredi in Tulsa King. Now Stallone himself has shared a brief clip of his kingpin character showing his violent temper and unleashing some threats as well as some choice language. See the fiery clip in the space below:

Tulsa King’s storyline sees New York mob capo Manfredi getting freed from prison after a 25-year stint and being sent to the relative backwater of Tulsa, Oklahoma to set up a new criminal enterprise. Manfredi must then put together a new crew of morally dubious accomplices to help him set up shop in this unfamiliar environment, It’s indeed a big advantage having Winter onboard the series as showrunner, given his experience dealing with similar mafia characters on HBO’s acclaimed series The Sopranos. It also helps having Sheridan’s magic TV touch involved in bringing Tulsa King to life.


But of course the biggest selling point of Tulsa King has to be the presence of Stallone, an actor who is a legend of the big screen but has never had a significant presence on television or streaming. The above clip suggests that Stallone will be at his most fiery and dramatic playing mobster Manfredi, a big fish in a small and unfamiliar pond. It remains to be seen of course if Stallone’s larger-than-life movie star skills translate successfully to the small screen. But the team behind Tulsa King is surely very impressive and the show looks to be a fine showcase for Stallone as he joins other long-in-the-tooth stars like Costner and Ford in the ever-expanding Sheridan TV universe. Tulsa King hits Paramount+ on November 13, 2022.

Apple Orders Dramedy Series ‘Land of Women’ Starring Eva Longoria, Carmen Maura

Published

on

Apple has ordered the limited dramedy series “Land of Women” with Eva Longoria and Carmen Maura set to star.

The six-episode series is based on the Sandra Barneda novel of the same name. Longoria will star as Gala, a New York empty nester whose life is turned upside down when her husband implicates the family in financial improprieties, and she is forced to flee the city alongside her aging mother (Maura) and college-age daughter.

To escape the dangerous criminals to whom Gala’s now vanished husband is indebted, the three women hide in the same charming wine town in Northern Spain that Gala’s mother fled 50 years ago, vowing never to return. The women seek to start anew and hope their identities will remain unknown, but gossip in the small town quickly spreads, unraveling their deepest family secrets and truths.

The series is currently in pre-production in Spain and will be shot in both English and Spanish and will be made available to view in both languages.

Ramón Campos and Gema R. Neira are adapting the book for the screen, with Campos also set to serve as showrunner. Longoria will also serve as an executive producer under her UnbeliEVAble Entertainment banner along with Ben Spector. Teresa Fernández-Valdés will also executive produce. Carlos Sedes will direct. Bambu Studios will produce the show for Apple.

This is the latest Spanish-language production for Apple. The streamer also has the thriller series “Now & Then,” “Acapulco” starring Eugenio Derbez, and the recently ordered “Midnight Family,” based on the documentary of the same name.

Published

on

Stranger Things star Joe Keery is joining the cast of FX’s Fargo season 5, after his run as Steve Harrington in the Netflix hit series.

Stranger Things star Joe Keery will be joining the cast of FX’s Fargo season 5. Keery made a name for himself as the archetypal 80’s high school bully-turned-hero, Steve Harrington, in Netflix’s hugely popular supernatural/science-fiction show. The series has proved to be the biggest hit for the streaming giant, with Stranger Things season 4 being the most-watched television show on any streaming service this year. For its part, Fargo is a series inspired by the critically-acclaimed Joel and Ethan Cohen 1996 black comedy crime film of the same.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Now, as confirmed by FX, Keery is set to join the cast of the upcoming Fargo season 5. The actor will play a character named Gator Tillman, though no other details about his role have been revealed so far. Keery will be joined by more new cast additions in New Girl‘s Lamorne Morris as Witt Farr, and Never Have I Ever‘s Richa Moorjani as Indira Olmstead. How Tillman, Farr, and Olmstead will fit into season 5’s story has also yet to be revealed.

In a break from the previous season’s more historical settings, Fargo season 5 will reportedly be set in 2019. Its story will likely feature a kidnapping, given FX’s previously released tagline for the season: “When is a kidnapping not a kidnapping, and what if your wife isn’t yours?Ted Lasso star Juno Temple is slated to star as the female lead, Dot, a secretive housewife. According to FX chairman, John Landgraf, the upcoming Fargo season 5 season will also be more comedic compared to previous seasons’ dark tone. Rounding out the cast is Jon Hamm as Roy and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Lorraine. Following his beloved role as Steve in Stranger Things and his recent comedy turn in Free Guy, it will be interesting to see how Keery’s role fits into this new take on the Fargo universe, but the actor has proved himself more than up to the task.
