RIP Apollo Creed. He was also great in Predator and The Mandalorian. I always felt he was a very underrated actor. .

I haven't seen Rocky movies. I know him from Predator and just now after reading PanzerMeyer's post, realize he is in The Mandalorian series.

Looking at his IMDB, I've also seen him in Force 10 From Navarone

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001835/

He is also listed as a military police in Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind. Must had been a cameo cos I don't remember him.

I can watch this for free with our Prime.

The older I get, the more I realize I don't need to be Han, Luke or Leia. I'm just happy to be rebel scum...

Yeah, I was really surprised and bummed when I read this. He was good in everything he was in, and added class to any project he was involved with.

I always thought he was underrated. Apollo Creed was a great character and he did great playing him.

I agree he was underrated as Apollo Creed. A great adversary through all of the Rocky films. And Predator as well.
I did not know Carl Weathers was an NFL and CFL player until today. Gone too soon.
Rest in Peace.

To me he will always be "Dillon! You Son Of A ... "

WOW! Arnold was gigantic back then.

Predator came out 37 years ago so both Carl and Arnold were at their physical primes.
