Arnold Schwarzenegger: 'I don't want to run for President'

Stallone said: "I have to defer to Arnold on this one because he really developed action comedy and the use of humor in very dramatic situations. My characters? Rambo isn't exactly a barrel of laughs, is he?

"He invented the one-liner. 'I'll be back!' that's one of his major contributions. They didn't have those before."

He's paid big bucks to engineer real life jailbreaks from high security correctional facilities.  In fact, Ray has a 100 per cent escape rate. 

When Breslin and his associates at B & C Security, Abigail...
