Actor Sylvester Stallone reveals the first image of his character Dwight “The General” Manfredi in Taylor Sheridan’s Tulsa King series.
Sylvester Stallone has shared a first image of his character from the upcoming Taylor Sheridan movie king of tulsa series. Stallone, the star of classic franchises like Rocky and Rambois one of Hollywood’s most prolific actors, having been a constant presence since his debut in the 70s. In recent years, Stallone has created and starred in the action franchise The Expendableswhile continuing his character’s legacy of Rocky Balboa in the Creed derivative films.
Taylor Sheridan is the actor-turned-writer/director responsible for writing movies like Sicario, Hell or High Water, Wind River, and Those who want me dead (he also directed the last two). Sheridan branched out into television in 2018 with the Kevin Costner-directed film Yellowstone for Paramount Plus, which became a huge hit and put the new streaming service on the map. Since then, Sheridan has branched out with more shows (and many more on the way), including the Yellowstone spin off 1883, The Mayor of Kingstown with Jeremy Renner, and now with king of tulsawith Stallone.

Sheridan serves as the show’s executive producer along with Boardwalk Empireby Terrence Winter, who also serves as showrunner. Also on deck in an executive producer role is David Glasser, who highlighted the Sheridan/Winter/Stallone pairing for king of tulsasaying he will focus on one “A man who prioritizes loyalty and family above all else, and is now taking stock of his life and grappling with the choices that brought him to Tulsa.” Take a look at the first image from the show below:
In a previous Instagram post, Stallone talks about working on the series, saying he has “the best moment” work on king of tulsa and that he thinks it will be a “big success” and that he is “proud to be part of it.” This is Stallone’s first time starring in a TV/streaming series, marking a milestone for the 75-year-old actor. Stallone is joined king of tulsa by actors Max Casella (The Sopranos), Domenick Lombardozzi (Thread), Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire), Jeff Panzarella (Blue blood), and Chris Caldovino (also Boardwalk Empire).
Stallone playing a mob boss in a Sheridan/Winter produced show seems like the perfect role for the actor at this point in his career. Since it’s nearly impossible to maintain the level of physical action roles that defined his early work, Stallone has lost none of his presence as an actor and only gained esteem as he got older. Playing a mobster on a quest for redemption feels like something Stallone can really have fun with while expanding his repertoire into potentially darker new territory. With any luck (and a lot of talent attached), Stallone’s king of tulsa will be another winner for Paramount Plus, which continues to forge ahead in the streaming world with a solid batch of compelling content.
