    Carl Weathers

    Carl Weathers continues to perform in both the film and television
    industries
    after more than forty-five years. As a result, fan-mail from Europe,
    Australia, Africa, The Far East and of course North and South America
    continues to arrive. His celebrity and fan-base around the world continues
    to grow through industry ancillary markets, internet penetration and with
    the growth of mobile devices. Performing in movies like ROCKY, PREDATOR and
    HAPPY GILMORE helped further establish him as a talent who is recognizable
    and sought after.

    From San Diego State University, Mr. Weathers earned a B.A. in Theatre
    Arts. Later, he was credited for further theatre study at San Francisco
    State University. Carl started his professional acting career in San
    Francisco before moving to Los Angeles where acting studies were continued
    in at Hugh Zetland Acting and Charles Conrad Studios. Since that trip to
    Hollywood, his good fortune has continued and his love for the industry has
    grown.

    Carl is also a talented and accomplished Director.

    A little know fact is that he ttended animal husbandry school in
    Kansas before
    starting a purebred cattle operation in Washington State. Cattle bred at
    his
    Heaven On Earth Ranch were sold throughout the United States. He personally

    worked with and has shown cattle in competition. Heaven On Earth brand
    cattle have won numerous awards around the country. This has been a
    gratifying departure from Ëœshow business" but has also proven to be an
    enormous benefit as he's continued to work within the entertainment
    industry.
    "You can't force or will a 1200 hundred to 2000 pound animal to do what it
    doesn't
    want to do. You can't force or will Mother Nature to yield what it is not
    ready to yield. You learn the art of persuasive guidance, the value of
    preparation. You learn to give in order to get. You learn to co-operate."
