'Rocky' Actor, Former Boxer Tony Burton Dies at 78: Report »
I was hoping he'd show up in "Creed" but this explains his absence. Duke was a cool character. Rest in peace.
Great in the Rocky films. And look, there he is in "The Shining"!
Loved him in Rocky.
Didn't realize he was in all 6.
I think he, Stallone and Burt Young are the only ones who appeared in all of them. The article says there are four actors who have that distinction, but I can't think of who the fourth could possibly be.
They are probably counting Talia Shire, though only archive footage of her is in the 6th one.
Saw this on Facebook last night, wondered how long it'd be before it got posted here.
That's Scatman Crothers
Scatman rents the snowcat from him.
And in John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13... cracking movie that.
I loved his little role in Stir Crazy.
he was staple in the Rocky franchise...wonderful actor...R.I.P...
Awesome! Never realized it the many times I have watched The Shining.... Gotta go watch it again!
shameful that for all the supposed posturing about diversity at the Oscars, Tony Burton was excluded from the memorial segment.
