    I was hoping he'd show up in "Creed" but this explains his absence. Duke was a cool character. Rest in peace.

    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.

    shameful that for all the supposed posturing about diversity at the Oscars, Tony Burton was excluded from the memorial segment.
