Actor Carl Weathers has passed away aged 76. Star of the 'Rocky' movies, where he played Apollo Creed, the original 'Predator' movie, and countless others, as well as more recently seen playing Greef Karga in 'The Mandalorian', Carl had a 50-year long Hollywood career. He was a terrific actor, and he will be much missed.

Rest in peace Carl.

Agreed, it really does.

My brother was lucky enough to have worked with him and confirmed he was an absolute gent.

Sad news to see, especially after he was having such a recent comeback.

RIP to another of my childhood favorites.

Very sad. RIP

Very sad news, RIP.

I remember him from so many good movies and series, thanks for your great work.

Carl worked with the best and his first movie ever was Magnum Force. He was only a demonstrator in that movie so I guess he did not work for real with the stars in that movie, Clint Eastwood and Hal Holbrook.

Here are a picture with a very young Carl Weathers in Magnum Force

I guess we all know Rocky, 2, 3 and 4. I think he was fantastic in this 4 movies and did a great job. Here he worked with the best again. Sylvester Stallone, Burt Young, Brigitte Nielsen, Dolph Lundgren, James Brown, Mr. T and Hulk Hogan.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind, here he worked with Richard Dreyfuss, Teri Garr and Lance Henriksen.

Force 10 from Navarone here he worked with Harrison Ford, Robert Shaw, Edward Fox, Franco Nero, Barbare Bach and Richard Kiel.

What a legend! Great actor, great screen presence. Loved him in Predator but he'll always be Apollo Creed to me. He was good in the Mandalorian too. Saw him at Brighton Comicon some years ago. Sad day ☹️
