The Italian Stallion vs. The Raging Bull: Stallone and De Niro to clash in "Grudge Match"

Talk about a welcome Christmas present.

Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro headline a packed cast including Alan Arkin, Kevin Hart, Kim Basinger and Jon Bernthal in the sports comedy “Grudge Match.”

The two stars from “Rocky” and “Ragin Bull” are a pair of aging boxing rivals coaxed out of retirement to fight one final bout — 50 years after their last match.

I’m thinking Hart could steal the show if he’s cast in a Don King type role.

“Grudge Match” comes to theaters on Christmas, Dec. 25.
