Sylvester Stallone recently revealed Creed 2 is in the works and now comes this knockout announcement from tv producer/screenwriter Dan Fogleman. He confirmed Sylvester Stallone will be featured in Season 2 of “This Is Us.” Sly will appear in a guest starring role opposite Justin Hartley’s character as a co-star in his new film within the series. Stallone previously appeared with “This Is Us” star Milo Ventimiglia in the 2006 film “Rocky Balboa” Fogelman told reporters that Stallone is only currently booked for one episode but “It’s a big part. It’s a war period film that Justin is starring in. Stallone is coming in as himself in the show but playing a character in the film who’s a mentor figure who starts bringing up some stuff for Justin’s character involving Jack and his relationship with his own father.” Fogleman also said “We have a great script for him. I think it’s going to be really, really exciting” Other guest stars lined up for this season include Dan Lauria and Debra Jo Rupp. “This Is Us” Season 1 was recently nominated for 11 Emmy Awards, including one for outstanding drama series. “This Is Us” returns to NBC September 26.
