Los Angeles, Oct 12 (SocialNews.XYZ) Oscar-Nominated star of "Jackie Brown" Robert Forster is dead. He was 78.

Forster, a prolific character actor who was nominated for an Oscar for Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" and appeared in more than 100 films, died on Friday in Los Angeles of brain cancer, reports

Most recently, Forster reprised his "Breaking Bad" role as Ed in "El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie", which was released Friday, and appeared in Steven Spielberg's "Amazing Stories" and in "Werewolf".


David Lynch cast the actor with a distinctive weathered look in "Mulholland Dr." and in the rebooted "Twin Peaks" as Sheriff Frank Truman.

"I've done a lot of genre pictures in my career...I've always liked them," Forster told the Bleecker Street blog upon the release of 2018's indie drama "What They Had".

Forster played Tim Allen's father in "Last Man Standing" and played the father of a comatose mother in Alexander Payne's "The Descendants", which was nominated for ensemble acting prizes by SAG and the Gotham awards.

Born in Rochester, Forster started his career on Broadway in "Mrs. Dally Has a Lover" before John Huston cast him in "Reflections in a Golden Eye" opposite Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando.

Forster is survived by his children: Bobby, Elizabeth, Kate and Maeghen; his grandchildren: Tess, Liam, Jack and Olivia; and long time partner, Denise Grayson.
