RIP Robert, just saw this on the news. He had some good roles.

I didn't know Forster was in that movie. I had crush on Pam Grier.

That is sad, I liked him as an actor. He seemed to act like himself in the movies he was in,very down to Earth.

Very sad news. Have watched him since I was a kid and the Black Hole came out. I liked him a lot.

Sad news, RIP.

Just finished watching El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. According to IMDB, it was his second to last completed role.

The earliest work I know of him was Jackie Brown, and was very impressed by his speaking style. He spoke with such calm, clarity, and authority, I thought I can understand anything if he was doing the explaining. When he showed up on Breaking Bad, it was a very pleasant surprise. He spoke his lines just as well as he did in Jackie Brown.

RIP sir, you did fine work.

What a loss! I just watched him Friday on the NetFlix sequel (movie) to Breaking Bad: "El Camino-The Return of Jessie Pinkman". As usual, Mr. Forster gave an excellent performance. Frown

He was a regular on Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing".

I always enjoyed his work.

He played the bad guy battling Chuck Norris in Delta Force, but I didn't hold that against him.

I liked him as Tim Allen's dad in Last Man Standing, bringing some good laughs to the show.

Sorry to hear that. The first time ever saw him he played an Indian scout named Nick Tana along with Greg Peck and a crazed Apache Salvaje.
