R I P Robert Forster

Beloved veteran character actor and Oscar-nominee Robert Forster has passed away at age 78. Forster died at his Los Angeles home due to brain cancer. He’s survived by his third wife and children to whom our sincerest condolences go out to.

Forster’s career began naked on horseback in John Huston’s “Reflections in a Golden Eye” in 1967 along with the lead in “Medium Cool”. His promising career began to fade as he ended up working in some failed productions from Disney’s costly flop “The Black Hole” to creature and exploitation features like “Avalanche,” “Alligator,” “American Yakuza” and “Delta Force”.

In 1997 though he saw a major resurgence with the key role of the male lead in 1997’s “Jackie Brown” and has been around on our screens ever since in films ranging from “Mulholland Drive” to “The Descendants,” “Olympus Has Fallen,” “Me, Myself and Irene,” “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past,” “Supernova,” “Firewall,” “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” and the “Twin Peaks” revival.

Forster’s final film role is in “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” which premiered on Netflix today.
