    Damn, that's terrible. Brain cancer is the worst. :(

    And here I was just thinking about how he was due to show up in Better Call Saul.

    Rest in peace, Robert Forster.

    RIP.

    I think most of the stuff I remember him from is rather older (Though even then, he'd already done a fair bit)

    I only recently watched Alligator for the first time. He really elevated a lot of these otherwise trashy B-movies.

    It seems fitting that he died on the day the Breaking Bad movie was released.

    R.I.P.

    And fuck cancer.

    Blast.

    He had a nice lead role in MEDIUM COOL. He had a memorable nude romp with Mariana Hill in that one. Kids of a certain age, including me, probably first noticed him as the Captain in THE BLACK HOLE.

    He was also the Captain in SUPERNOVA but had the good sense to get out early. I don't think he did too much sci-fi but when he did, he was the Captain.

    Picturing a Dos Equis meme. “I don’t always do sci-fi, but when I do, I do it like a boss.”

    He had so much gravitas on screen. He was who they originally wanted to play Harry Truman in Twin Peaks, that’s why he got the role of his brother decades later.
