This guy was great! It's a deep loss for anyone who grew up with him. Rocky, Predator, Happy Gilmore, Mandalorian, and many many more.

As far as anyone was aware publicly, he was in excellent health so this comes as a shock. A rare combination of athleticism and genuine theatrical skill.

His portrayal of Apollo in particular will leave a tremendous legacy. If you haven't seen the revised cut of Rocky IV, it features a few extra/extended scenes of Weathers as Apollo in a more complex role. Worth checking out.

RIP, Mr. Weathers, and thank you for all that you did. You shall live on in all you've starred in and the minds of those who experienced it.

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. RIP Apollo Creed! The movies that shaped the will of a generation!
