Sylvester Stallone is being considered for a prominent role in Donald Trump’s new administration.
The President-elect is currently building his team and according to several reports, the actor is being put forward to chair The National Endowment for the Arts. Stallone would play a key role in the independent federal agency that provides opportunities for Americans to get involved in the arts and exercise their creative abilities.
Launched in 1965, the NEA provides a host of grants for artistic projects and is currently promoting a fund for a Creative Writing Fellowship as well as Translation Projects.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, Trump considers Stallone as the “perfect choice” to make “art great again” in America.
Whether or not he chooses to follow a career in politics like pal Arnold Schwarzenegger is anyone’s guess, but Stallone has hinted at the possibility in previous interviews.
Stallone’s recent success with “Creed” and subsequent commitments may make it difficult for the actor to pursue a political role, but this is an early indicator that Trump’s tapping into top Hollywood talent despite many in the entertainment industry giving him the cold shoulder during the election campaign.
Could we see Arnie and Stallone teaming up with Trump to make America great again?
