Next Celebrity Mag Contender
Could Prove A Real Knockout
on October 1st that Sylvester Stallone and American
Media are developing a new men's fitness magazine which
would feature Sly on the cover each month.
Here's what the piece says:
He beat the odds to become a
fictional heavyweight champion of the world, and won
an Oscar in the process. Now sources tell Mag Rack
that actor Sylvester Stallone is the next big celebrity
magazine contender. Following in the footsteps of Rosie,
Oprah, and Trump, American Media is developing
Sly, a new health and fitness monthly aimed at
older men, which would feature Stallone on the cover
of each issue.
It's a logical line extension
for American Media, which already publishes Men's
Fitness, and already has an editorial talent pool in place
to develop the personality-oriented workout book.
Assuming Stallone's magazine
actually makes it to the racks, he would immediately elevate
his status as one of the more versatile figures in the media
universe. The actor, best known for his roles as "Rocky"
and "Rambo," is also on the bill to host
the new NBC boxing reality series "The Contender."
