Frank Stallone a Surprise Hit in "Fred Claus"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - Frank Stallone ("Barfly," "Tombstone") has been getting rave reviews for his appearance in the Christmas Hit "Fred Claus."

Stallone, a Grammy and Golden Globe-Nominated Artist, was asked last year to appear in the film as himself.

Stallone says, "At first I was a little leery because of the bad experience I had as a series regular on the TV sitcom 'Movie Stars' in which I played myself."

Frank goes on to say, "I had all but given up on the film business after almost 60 films. I wasn't getting any work and I couldn't find an agent and no one seemed to show any interest, so I rededicated myself to my music full time."

Stallone was nominated for Best Song for the Film "Staying Alive" and for best sound track for the same film.

Stallone was also highly considered for a Best Supporting Actor nomination by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences for his role as Eddie The Bartender in "Barfly."

Frank continues, "I must say working on 'Fred Claus' was a delightful experience. I wish all film sets were as joyful."
