Frank once worked with the brothers of other famous actors.
He teamed up with Don Swayze, the brother of the late Patrick Swayze, and Joey Travolta, the brother of John Travolta, for the sitcom Movie Stars, which featured Harry Hamlin and Jennifer Grant playing famous Hollywood actors trying to raise their children. It was short-lived, airing only from July 1999 until June 2000.
He recently shared an epic and memorable photo with Sly.
The black and white photo was taken the first time he went to Los Angeles, CA and featured both brothers posing and smiling. “This pic is my first time in LA in 1975 they we’re just rehearsing Rocky both of us totally broke and unknown,” he wrote in the caption. “I’m wearing my brothers letter jacket from high school. I forget where we were. LA was 360 degrees different then now. It was the real California.”
“I would move out in 1979 at my brother’s behest , I’d done all I could do in the 7 yrs in NJ , go west young man,” he continued. “Two guys in their 20’s with a dream. I love this picture.” He ended the caption with the hashtags, “#rocky #stayingalive #wewereblessed #bethankful.”
