'Rocky' actor Burt Young discusses lost Hal Ashby film

'Rocky' actor Burt Young chats with Movie Geeks United

Now
we know why Burt Young played Sylvester Stallone’s dyspeptic
bother-in-law Paulie so convincingly in the penultimate Rocky picture:
He was peeved at the he-man.

Interviewed on Movie Geeks United,
the legendary character actor says it was only his daughter’s fond
memories of his earlier collaborations with Sly that repaired an epic
rift.
CAPTION: Burt (above): Much, ah, happier in the final Rocky flick.

“Rocky
V…was a clinker. I was sore. In fact, he and I didn’t talk because I
was sore about what we didn’t do to help that movie,” Burt tells host
Jamey DuVall of the 1990 film.

“We really didn’t talk for years
and years and years – until they told me he’d written another story
[which] was turned down. But he believed in it,” Burt continues.

“My
daughter…grew up with the Rocky things, and she was reminding me how we
used to work together – write together, rehearse together – and the joy
we used to have out of each other from working.

“So I was
invited as part of the audience when [Sly] was doing that Contender
[TV] series with Sugar Ray Leonard. And it was the first time we said
hello in many years.
Yo, Paulie! With on-again pal Sly at the “Rocky Balboa” premiere.

“And
he said, ‘Burt, I’ve been turned down on this,” he adds of Sly’s script
for Rocky Balboa, which would be brought to the big screen in 2006.

“But I only want to hear what you have to say about it.’ So he sent me a copy. And it was magnificent.”

Burt
also chats with Jamey about working with co- star Jon Voight and the
late director Hal Ashby on the 1982 comedy Lookin’ To Get Out, and
about working with the late Rodney Dangerfield on 1986’s Back to School.

“At the beginning, we got off the wrong start,” Burt says of Rodney.

“So for a while I barred him from my trailer for poor conduct and deportment.”
