Very sad news. Carl Weathers has passed away. I do not yet know the circumstances.
He was, literally, the other half of Rocky and Rocky II. I met him briefly in 1976. He was friendly and approachable and spoke casually with all the boxers during the filming of Rocky.
He embodied the role of Apollo Creed and that is how I will remember him. Many other roles for sure but he was Apollo Creed.
Our condolences to his family, friends and many fans. He was 76. R.I.P. Champ!
