Sir, does the Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day get to win this time?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! To all of Sly Stallone’s fans and to the Italian Stallion himself, I’m sorry I didn’t love The Expendables, but I’d like to extend an olive branch. One of my Twitter followers (@Koutchboom of AIBN renown) sent me a photo that I considered using from the filming of Demolition Man… It’s from the cryo-freezing scene and… well, let’s just say it’s NSFW. I joked with Harry that it had to go in this column and he was fine with it, but a little common decency stayed my hand on that one. Sorry, ladies. Instead I dove into my BTS folders and dug up this really neat shot from Rambo III. I originally believed it to be from First Blood Part II, but the much sharper readers corrected the error for me. The still is more of an artsy behind the scenes shot… not necessarily from any moment you can recognize, but I love it as a photo that kind of perfectly encapsulates Sylvester Stallone from this time period. Here’s the pic (click for bigger version):

If you know who is reflected in his glasses let me know via email or talkback. I thought for a moment it might be George P. Cosmatos, but looking closer reveals him to be much older than Cosmatos was at the time. Oh, and he looks almost nothing like the man. That, too. The Hive Mind returned saying the reflection looks like Andrew Vajna who was co-founder of the great Carolco (long live Carolco!) and producer of this flick. Thanks hive mind! If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic might make you a little dizzy… in more ways than one! See ya’ tomorrow for that one! -Quint Follow Me On Twitter
