Action star Carl Weathers appears a few times throughout the series as a parody of himself, albeit penny-pinching and mooching. He serves as Tobias' (terrible) acting coach, and later directs an unflattering episode of Scandalmakers about the Bluths. His claim to fame among AD fanatics, however, is his diatribe about making stew: "Whoa, whoa, whoa. There's still plenty of meat on that bone. Now you take this home, throw it in a pot, add some broth, a potato. Baby, you've got a stew going!"
