Celebrating Carl Weathers — An Empire Podcast Special

By Empire Magazine

Wednesday, 25 November

We love Carl Weathers at Empire Towers. How can we not? Over the course of a career that has spanned almost 50 years, he has played some of the most iconic characters around. Apollo Creed. Dillon from Predator. 'Action' Jackson. Chubbs Peterson. And now Greef Karga in The Mandalorian. And so, in the first of an occasional series, the Empire Podcast team — Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara, James Dyer and Rocky superfan Terri White — get together to take a very special, and deeply affectionate, look back at Weathers and his storied career. But that's not all. This series will also delve into the Empire Podcast archives to bring you interviews we've done in the past. So you can hear the interview Chris did with Weathers when he came to our London studio in 2017, which runs from 03:16.412 to 28:43.245. And you can also hear an extended excerpt from the chat the two had just last week about Weathers' work starring in and directing the latest episode of The Mandalorian. That runs from 28:57.301 to 47:11.805. And yes, we hope to have Carl back to discuss Upgrade 2: Unlandable: Holding Pattern With Carl Weathers at a later date. If you don't know what that is, have a listen to the episode. Enjoy.
