How old are you? Are you 60-years-old? What about 71? Are you in the gym? No, you are eating doughnuts in the office because it’s someone’s birthday again. Sweet, sweet, gooey doughnuts - I’ve had three now and I don’t think I’ll stop - I don’t even know whose birthday it is. Still gonna whip my hippo tongue around that custardy hole though, ain’t I? God these taste amazing.
Woah, apologies, got a little side-tracked there. What I was trying to say is that Sylvester Stallone is 71 and Dolph Lundgren is 60 and they are training like men over half their age - what I would give to be in their shape when I’m that old.

And only 11 years his younger, Dolph doing exactly the same thing:
There’s no slacking with these two - properly getting into their roles here, it’s what I like to see while I eat my doughnuts.
The film, directed by Steven Caple Jr. and starring Lundgren, Stallone, Michael B Jordan and Florian Munteanu will hit cinemas in the latter part of this year.
On a side note: anyone remember Rocky bars? They were well nice. Might go and get one. See ya in a bit.
