Sage Moonblood Stallone (May 5, 1976 – July 13, 2012) was an American actor, film director, film producer, and film distributor. He was the son of Sylvester Stallone.
Sage Stallone was born in Los Angeles, California, the elder son of Sasha Czack and actor Sylvester Stallone. He was the brother of Seargeoh Stallone, and half-brother of Sistine, Sophia, and Scarlet Stallone. He was the nephew of actor and singer Frank Stallone, and grandson of Jackie Stallone. He was stepson to Jennifer Flavin.
Stallone attended Montclair College Preparatory School in Van Nuys, California, where he graduated in 1993. He later studied filmmaking at North Carolina School of the Arts for one year.
As a child, Stallone made a guest appearance on Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, brought by his grandmother Jackie Stallone, who promoted the series.
Stallone made his acting debut alongside his father in Rocky V (1990), the fifth installment of the Rocky franchise, playing Robert Balboa Jr., the onscreen son of his father's title character. He did not, however, reprise the same role in Rocky Balboa, the sixth installment of the Rocky films as he was working on his own film "Vic". He also appeared with his father in Daylight (1996). After that, he acted in lesser profile films.
From 1994-1995, he attended the University of North Carolina School of the Arts School of Filmmaking.
In 1996, Stallone and film editor Bob Murawski co-founded Grindhouse Releasing, a Los Angeles-based company dedicated to the restoration and preservation of exploitation films and B-movies. Stallone directed his first short film (outside of film school) Vic, which won the 2006 Boston Film Festival "Best New Filmmaker" award.
His last projects were appearances in Vincent Gallo's last two films, Promises Written in Water and The Agent. Both films were shown in main competition at the 2010 Venice Film Festival and in the Toronto International Film Festival.

Sage was found dead on July 13, 2012 at his home in Studio City, Los Angeles. According to reports, he had not been heard from for four days prior to his death and died between three and seven days prior to being found. Empty prescription drug bottles were found at the scene, but after an autopsy and toxicology tests, the Los Angeles coroner determined that Sage died of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. At the time of his death, Stallone was reportedly engaged. Stallone's funeral was held on July 21 at St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church in Los Angeles. He is interred at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery.
