Very sorry to hear of the loss of Carl Weathers.
He had that thing that all the greats had: you were always happy to see him. And he stayed relevant up through his character in The Mandalorian.
I always cherish the nerd discovery, I think shared with me by my friend Andy Dursin years ago, that he has a bit part in Close Encounters:
“Look! It’s Carl Weathers!”
The cast to Predator—a minor-masterpiece of 1980s action sci-fi—is a truly great line-up of macho stars.
Greatest handshake ever?
Rest in peace, sir.
