If there is a third Creed film, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder may have a part in it.

In an interview with TMZ, Sylvester Stallone said he’d be open to giving Wilder a shot at landing the role of the son of Clubber Lang if there is another Creed movie.

Lang was played by Mr. T so having an outspoken personality like Wilder, who will be fighting Tyson Fury again after their fight on December 1 ended in a draw, makes sense.

“The answer is yes … come one, come all,” said the 72-year-old Stallone.

Wilder also told TMZ he’d be open to venturing into acting and playing the part of Lang’s son.

“That’s what I’m all about; my passion is acting,” Wilder said.
