Actor Carl Weathers has been winning over fans for decades, having starred in projects like Rocky, Predator, and Happy Gilmore, which made him a welcome addition to the galaxy far, far away when he starred as Greef Karga in the debut season of The Mandalorian. The actor was so compelling, in fact, that even though he was only supposed to have a guest spot appearance, his charm and charisma saw his character get reworked to return later in the season. This week, Weathers showed off another set of his talents by starring in and directing The Mandalorian, which has fans thrilled.
Weathers has directed a number of TV episodes over the years, but fans were especially impressed with how he seamlessly joined the Star Wars franchise to capture all of The Mandalorian's sense of action and excitement, as well as its heart.

#TheMandalorian Chapter 12 was FANTASTIC. Greatly directed by Carl Weathers who infused his own style of 80’s Action into this. Incredible shots, set pieces, subtle world building moments and down right adorable moments with #BabyYoda makes this great set up for what’s to come! pic.twitter.com/wGB4awuvxc— Zachalorian & Baby Yoda 👽🔥 (@popetheking) November 20, 2020

Action and Humor
I had a fun time with this week's episode of #TheMandalorian. IMO it had a ton of solid action and humor, not to mention the inclusion of some neat legends stuff. It was great to see Carl Weathers' Greef Karga again. I thought he did a pretty good job directing the episode too. pic.twitter.com/odm5PaU6AM— Jacen Solo🎄🇦🇺📽️🎮 ⊃∪∩⪽ (@C43DU5) November 20, 2020
