On October 11th, another Hollywood legend took his final bow when acclaimed character actor Robert Forster died at the age of 78 following a battle with brain cancer. Best known for his role as Max Cherry in Quentin Tarantino‘s Jackie Brown, a part that earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor, Forster began his career and the late-1960s and remained working right up until his death. (His final film, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie was released just as word of his passing hit the media). A regular figure in films and on television, where he played authority figures, heavies, or everymen with ease, Robert Forster was never a global superstar.
