Before They Were Stars: Carl Weathers in “Friday Foster”

With Creed playing in cinemas this week, I thought it would be a good time to post footage of the first time Carl Weathers, the man who portrayed Apollo Creed, got into a fight onscreen. One of Weathers’ earliest acting roles was playing a henchman in Friday Foster, a 1975 blaxploitation film starring Pam Grier. At one point during the film, Weathers gets into a fistfight with Yaphet Kotto and winds up getting shot.
