“I was an extra in Rocky Balboa and made it into the final print. In the scene when Rocky visits the Italian Market to buy food for Adrian’s Restaurant, I walk past him as he is loading his groceries in his van.

“We also filmed a scene that never made the movie. All of the extras in the Italian Market were directed to run up to Rocky and excitedly ask for his autograph. Even though this scene never made it, I still have the business card he scribbled on during this unused scene. I never in a million years thought I would get paid to go up to Sylvester Stallone and ask for his autograph.”
