Robert's Breaking Bad co-star Bryan Cranston took to Twitter to share his condolences, writing: "I'm saddened today by the news that Robert Forster has passed away".

"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.

Details of his memorial service have not yet been announced, Berlin said.

After starting out his career with roles in such movies as Reflections in a Golden Eye (opposite Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando) and Medium Cool, Forster headlined a pair of short-lived TV series, NBC's Banyon and then ABC's Nakia.

Six months later, Tarantino would present him the script for Jackie Brown in the very same establishment.

"If he wants to dive deep into this again then I'm all for it".

"Seriously. I got lucky every step of the way", he said. Thank you for loving me back. It earned him his first Academy Award nomination. He'd lose the supporting actor Oscar that year to Robin Williams for "Good Will Hunting".

After "Jackie Brown", he worked consistently and at a decidedly higher level than during the "slump", appearing in films like David Lynch's "Mulholland Drive", "Me, Myself and Irene", "The Descendants", "Olympus Has Fallen", and "What They Had", and in television shows like "Breaking Bad" and the "Twin Peaks" revival. In 2012, he was cast as Bud Baxter in the sitcom Last Man Standing, playing Tim Allen's father.

Forster is survived by his four children, four grandchildren and Grayson, his partner of 16 years.
