The actor died on Friday at his Los Angeles home from brain cancer, his agent told The Hollywood Reporter.

He worked consistently throughout the 1970s and 1980s in mostly forgettable B-movies - ultimately appearing in over 100 films, many out of necessity.

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

He appeared in Medium Cool for director Haskell Wexler and starred in the TV series Banyon, reportedly the role that Tarantino remembered when casting him in Jackie Brown, and appeared in movies including Alligator, Olympus Has Fallen and American Perfekt.

"When I read it I could hardly believe that he had me in mind for Max Cherry, except that nothing else made any sense", he said.

"Seriously. I got lucky every step of the way", he said. Sadly, his death comes on the very day that El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie premiered on Netflix, where he reprised his role as Ed, a vacuum salesman with deep connections to the criminal underground.

The performance opposite Pam Grier became one of the more heartwarming Hollywood comeback stories, earning him his first and only Academy award nomination.

Forster also appeared in the Breaking Bad TV series as well as David Lynch's Mulholland Drive and Twin Peaks. He'd lose the supporting actor Oscar that year to Robin Williams for "Good Will Hunting".

Even in his down days, Forster always considered himself lucky.

According to Variety, Forster is survived by his children, Bobby, Elizabeth, Kate and Maeghen; his grandchildren, Tess, Liam, Jack and Olivia; and his longtime partner, Denise Grayson.
