We all know him as PAULIE! Burt Young portrayed Paulie Pennino who was a major role in the Rocky Film series. He was the brother in law and best friend to Rocky Balboa and really was a major part in bringing the Rocky franchise to life. He added a certain charisma that really allowed a small town feel...up close and personal. Burt played Paulie in every Rocky movie except the latest installment; CREED. But we are looking beyond ROCKY in this piece... We are discussing something that started for Burt Young back when he was 12 years old and he won some art supplies from a New York City Parks Department contest...Burt says, "When I was 12, I won a New York City art department contest. I did a painting about playgrounds or bicycle safety. I've painted my whole life."... A look at Burt Young: The Artist!
