Oscar-nominee Robert Forster died in Los Angeles on Friday of brain cancer, according to the Hollywood Reporter. He had appeared in the wildly popular Breaking Bad series.

Forster's career began way back in 1967 when he was a 26-year-old aspiring actor.

He was nominated for an Academy Award for his role as Max Cherry in Quentin Tarantino's 1997 film, Jackie Brown.

In an interview from a year ago, Forster recalled bumping into Tarantino in a coffee shop and having idle conversation.

Forster also appeared in the Breaking Bad TV series as well as David Lynch's Mulholland Drive and Twin Peaks.

Forster's performance caught the eye of director John Houston, who cast him in his first film, Reflections in a Golden Eye, with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando. The two met on the 1980 film Alligator and then worked together again on the television show Breaking Bad and its spinoff film, El Camino, which launched Friday on Netflix.


"I never forgot how kind and generous he was to a young kid just starting out in Hollywood", Cranston wrote in the tweet.

He was best known for his roles in the latter part of his career following his appearance in Jackie Brown.

"He said, 'I hire anybody I want.' And that's when I realised I was going to get another shot at a career".

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