Fall Signing Series: Carl Weathers to Sign for SWAU!
SWAU is thrilled to announce that Carl Weathers is the newest name to be announced for our Fall Signing Series! Star Wars fans know Weathers as Greef Karga, one of the main characters in The Mandalorian Season One.
In The Mandalorian, Weathers’ Karga character serves as the operator of the Bounty Hunter’s Guild, helping hunters get their next target as they search for their next payday. He helps link up Din Djarin with The Client, who is seeking out any bounty hunter who can help him acquire an asset that would be revealed as The Child. When Djarin violates the Guild code and goes back to save The Child, Karga turns from friend to enemy, before reverting back to an ally of Djarin to protect him from Moff Gideon’s wrath.
Fans of cinema for the last forty years will recognize Weathers for his roles as the iconic boxer Apollo Creed in the Rocky franchise; George Dillon in Predator; Chubbs Peterson in Happy Gilmore; and Sergeant Action Jackson in the film Action Jackson, for which Weathers was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture. He also has had a prolific career in television for his roles in Street Justice, In The Heat of the Night; Chicago Justice, and Chicago P.D. Weathers is also a former National Football League player, having played two seasons for the Oakland Raiders.
Needless to say, Weathers belongs on every single cast piece for The Mandalorian. He also is an easy add to anyone working on a poster for the Rocky movies, Predator, or Happy Gilmore. One of the main characters from Season One, we expect that Weathers will play a major role in Season Two as well, making his Greef Karga character even more endearing and popular.
Orders for Weathers, as well as all of the upcoming Fall Signer Series actors, will go on sale Saturday, August 15th, at 12pm ET. Stay locked on target to SWAU’s social media as we continue the announcements this week with more Signing Series names!
