Everton fans to star in new Rocky film

Everton fans attending tonight's Premier League clash against West Brom could feature in the next Rocky film.

Sylvester Stallone and Tony Bellew, both Everton supporters themselves, will walk onto the pitch at Goodison Park during the interval to film part of the new Hollywood movie 'Creed', due for release in 2016.

The Toffees will be hoping West Brom haven't delivered another knockout blow to their fading hopes of European qualification by that point.

The American actor supported the 1994 "Brady bill" which included a now-expired ban on assault weapons and hopes the legislation can be reinstated.

He said: "I know people get (upset) and go, 'They're going to take away the assault weapon.' Who ... needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you're carrying out an assault. You can't hunt with it. Who's going to attack your house, an army?"

"It's unbelievably horrible, what's happened. I think the biggest problem, seriously, is not so much guns. It's that every one of these people that have done these things in the past 30 years are friggin' crazy. Really crazy. And that's where we've dropped the ball, mental health," he added.
