"As Creed the movie unfolded, there wasn't much that resembled what happened in Creed the band," Stapp says of the latest in the Rocky series in a new Funny or Die clip. "This movie has a lot of boxing. One time I punched a guy from 311, but I never actually boxed."
The film, of course, revolves around a young boxer played by Michael B. Jordan who also happens to be the son of Rocky's own Apollo Creed. In it, Stallone reprises his role as Rocky, and trains the young boxer in Apollo's footsteps.
Unfortunately, for the purposes of the clip, it looks like no one told Scott Stapp that. Which may explain why he calls Jordan an "interesting casting choice" to play the Creed frontman.
"The character's name is Creed, not Scott Stapp," he jokes. "Sometimes when I walk down the street, people shout, "What's up, Creed!' So I guess I get it."
Despite those hurdles, however, Stapp does like the film. So much, in fact, that he awards it the coveted "four Arms Wide Open" rating.
Creed was released in theaters today.
