Tessa Thompson Was Cast in 'Creed' By Sylvester Stallone Himself!

Tessa Thompson made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night (November 13) and revealed how she was cast in Creed by Sylvester Stallone himself!

“Well sort of yeah, [director] Ryan Coogler was interested in me. At the time, he was thinking he wanted a musician to play the part because she is a musician,” the 35-year-old actress revealed to Jimmy. “But apparently, Sylvester Stallone was up one night watching BET and he saw me on a show, much like this I think, and I was giving an interview and thought, ‘this is our girl!’”

Tessa also talked about growing up in Hollywood, getting a fake ID, Jimmy’s scene getting cut out of Creed 2, and doing a chemistry test with Michael B. Jordan to see if they would be a good pair for the movie.
