There’s no word on if he will actually take the company up on the offer, as we know Rob isn’t a big fan of the spotlight. Get more here.

Bristol Palin’s Ex-Fiance Says He’s Her Baby’s Father, Fights for Custody
Bristol’s ex-fiancé, Dakota Meyer, wants joint custody of newborn Sailor Grace. But in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Sarah Palin said that he’s just trying to save face: “For many months we have been trying to reach out to Dakota Myers and he has wanted nothing to do with either Bristol’s pregnancy or the baby.” Now he’s claiming to be the biological father and is also asking that Bristol pay him child support. In case you missed it, Bristol announced her pregnancy one month after canceling her wedding to Meyer, but never publicly spoke about her child’s father. Rumor was that the split was over the face that he wasn’t the father. But then he shared a photo of Sailor with the caption: “Best Christmas present ever!! I couldn’t be more proud of this little blessing.” Get more here.

Sylvester Stallone is Done Playing Rambo
“Rambo 5” isn’t happening after all, because Sylvester Stallone is done with the character. He told “Variety”, quote, “The heart’s willing, but the body says, ‘Stay home!’ It’s like fighters that go back for one last round and get clobbered. Leave it to someone else.” (But isn’t that the plot of every single Rocky movie? A fighter who shouldn’t keep going, but does, and wins???) Fox is developing a TV series about Rambo’s son, but Stallone has nothing to do with it. And he isn’t expecting much from it. He says, quote, “It’s delicate to try to replace a character with his son. I’ve seen the son of Flicka, the son of Tarzan, the son of King Kong, the son of Godzilla. It’s a very difficult premise.” There is going to be a sequel to “Creed”, though. They even have a few ideas for the plot. One kind of mirrors “Rocky 4”, with Adonis Creed going up against a, quote, “more ferocious, big Russian.” The other is a “Godfather 2”-style plot that flashes back to before Apollo Creed’s death. Get more here.
“I never went into the film thinking this is going to be a transformative performance. I just thought Rocky has a lot of issues, a lot of problems. He’s like all of us.” Read the full cover story at variety.com (link in profile). Photo by @aspictures for Variety A photo posted by Variety Magazine (@variety) on
