Robert Forster, Oscar-Nominated ‘Jackie Brown’ and ‘Twin Peaks’ Star, Dies at 78
Robert Forster, a character actor best known for “Twin Peaks” and his Oscar-nominated performance in Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown,” has died. He was 78.

The New York native, who suffered from brain cancer, died Friday in his Los Angeles home.

Forster made his first impression on Hollywood audiences in back-to-back movies set in the Army, the first being in 1967 playing the free-spirited, birthday-suit-loving Army private Ellgee Williams in John Huston’s “Reflections in a Golden Eye,” starring Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor. The next year, he played a half-breed scout in “The Stalking Moon” opposite Gregory Peck.

In the years that followed, Forster had roles in films like “The Lady in Red,” “The Black Hole,” “Delta Force” and “Peacemaker,” but it was Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown” that gave his career a boost… and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
