Former MoCo Resident Sylvester Stallone Stars in His First Ever Series ‘Tulsa King’

by MCS Staff

Sylvester Stallone is one of the first people mentioned when talking celebrities with MoCo ties. Though he was born in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan, New York, his parents (Frank and Jackie Stallone) moved to the area in early 50s to open a beauty school. While living there, Sylvester spent some of his attended Woodlin Elementary School, Montgomery Hills Junior High, and was enrolled at Blair High School. Now, at age 76, Stallone is starring in his first ever television series Tulsa King.

The story of Tulsa King revolves around a former New York mafia boss Dwight “The General” Manfredi, played by Stallone. Manfredi is locked up for 25 years, obeys the code of silence/not ratting on your friends, and expects to be well compensated upon his release. Instead, he is sent down to Tulsa, where he’s tasked with “getting things started” for the mafia family.

In an interview with Variety, Stallone mentions the difficulty of filming television and doesn’t know if he’ll be able to film more seasons, “It’s beyond tough. I can’t believe some people have done this for four, five or six seasons. It’s brutal, compared to filmmaking. I’ll never say, ‘This is a hard shoot’ again on a feature. It’s a vacation compared to this! It really is.”

The show is available to stream on Paramount Plus with new episodes out every Sunday.
