Sylvester Stallone on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross

Tomorrow night (15 February) on BBC One's Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, Hollywood action hero Sylvester Stallone says Arnold Schwarzenegger should be US President.


"Arnold's a genius, he knows how to get things done ... he would be unbelievable."


He defends the ultra-violent new Rambo which critics are saying is the most violent film in years: "It's very violent, but I thought I can't soft-pedal it, it's a real war film."


And reveals there are more Rambos to come: "I'd love to go back to Rambo again, you don't get to play that kind of character very often. At first it was stereotyped but now I'm really proud to have done it. It's timely, ten years ago it wouldn't have been right."


At 61, he would like more kids: "I'd like more but my wife definitely needs a break. I don't want her to stay at home and do nothing, I want her to be the best she can be."


Sylvester talks about how it's tough to stay in shape and do his own stunts: "It was great letting myself go, but when you have something that's driving you, you have to do it. It becomes a habit, going to the gym every day, but I hate it. The last Rambo was a tough one."


Jonathan also chats to mezzo-soprano sex symbol Katherine Jenkins, teen Skins star Nicholas Hoult, and there's music from The Guillemots.


A Hotsauce TV production for BBC One.
