Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro are headed back into the ring. They will both once again play a boxer, this time in Grudge Match, EW has confirmed with Warner Bros. The news was first reported by Deadline.
Stallone is of course famous for Rocky and De Niro tackled the role of Jake LaMotta in 1980’s Raging Bull. That got us thinking about other actors – who have an iconic, everyone-knows-it role – that go back to a similar part years later (not in official sequels). We’re not talking about actors that just play the same role in every movie. Rather, thespians who have taken on many different roles but return to a famous one.
