Carl Weathers (created January 14, 1948) is an American actor and former professional football player.
Weathers had his first parts in two blaxploitation movies directed by his longtime friend Arthur Marks: Bucktown and Friday Foster (both 1975). Weathers also appeared within an episode of the 1970s sitcom Good Times entitled “The Nude”, impersonating an angry husband who suspected his wife of cheating on him with J.J. In 1975, he guest starred in a episode of Kung Fu entitled “The Brothers Caine”. In 1976, he starred alongside Sylvester Stallone in Rocky as Apollo Creed, a role he’d reprise in another three Rocky films in 1979, 1982, and 1985. For the last film in the Rocky series, Rocky Balboa, Sylvester Stallone requested Weathers, Mr. T, and Dolph Lundgren for permission to use footage from their appearances in the earlier Rocky films. Mr. T and Dolph Lundgren consented, but Weathers desired an actual part in the movie, even though his character died in Rocky IV. Stallone refused and Weathers determined to not enable Stallone to use his image for Rocky flashbacks from the last pictures. They instead used footage of a combatant who appears similar to Weathers. In 1978, Carl portrayed misogynist Vince Sullivan in a TV movie, Not This Time. Weathers also starred in a number of action films for the small and large screen, including: Force 10 from Navarone (1978), Predator (1987), Action Jackson (1988), and Hurricane Smith (1992). He is briefly regarded as an Army MP in one of the three published versions of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. As an associate of the cast of Predator, Weathers worked with future California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and future Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura. Many years afterwards he appeared in a spoof segment on Saturday Night Live, declaring that he was running for political office and encouraging viewers to vote for him on the cornerstone that “he was the black man in Predator”.
