Actor
    (January 14, 1948- )
    Linebacker for the Oakland Raiders in the NFL (1970-71)
    Linebacker for the British Columbia Lions in the CFL (1971-73)
    Best known as Apollo Creed in 'Rocky (1976),' Rocky II (1979),' 'Rocky III (1982)' and Rocky IV (1985)'
    Acted in 'Friday Foster (1975),' 'Bucktown (1975),' 'The Four Deuces (1976),' 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977),' 'Semi-Tough (1977),' 'Force 10 from Navarone (1978),' 'Death Hunt (1981),' 'Predator (1987),' 'Action Jackson (1988),' 'Hurricane Smith (1992),' 'Happy Gilmore (1996),' 'Elevator Seeking (1999)' and 'Little Nicky (2000)'
    Voice of GNC Guy in 'Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights (2002)' and Kirby in 'Balto III: Wings of Change (2004)'
    He portrayed a construction worker in a McDonald's TV commercial in the '70s.
    He was in several blaxploitation movies before his break in 'Rocky.'
    His first movie in a starring role, 'Action Jackson (1988),' was poorly received by both film critics and at the box office.
    He portrayed 'himself' in 'Michael Jackson: HIStory on Film - Volume II (1997).'
    When Halle Berry's dreadful 'Catwoman' movie spun-off into a video game (2004), he was the game's 'dialogue director.' (what's up with THAT?)
    He has maintained his chiseled physique decades after his time as a pro football player.
    He beat out boxing star Ken Norton for the role of Apollo Creed.
    He based the mannerisms of his Apollo Creed character loosely on Muhammad Ali.
    He was honored as 'Distinguished Alumni' at his alma mater, San Diego State University (1979).
    Adam Sandler took such a liking to him during filming of 'Happy Gilmore' that he cast him as the same character, Chubbs Peterson, in 'Little Nicky,' even though the character died in the previous movie.
    He is a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee and donates his time to the Big Brothers Association.
