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.

Forster went on to appear in more than 100 films and several television series.

Most recently Forster reprised his Breaking Bad role as Ed in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, which was released Friday, and appeared in Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories and in Werewolf.

That all changed thanks to Quentin Tarantino, who cast him as a sympathetic bail bondsman in his 1997 crime drama Jackie Brown.

Forster was born in Rochester, New York, and started his career on Broadway in "Mrs".

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

Hays Travel to take over 555 Thomas Cook stores
The travel agent went bust in September, but now a rival has bought out the high street stores and protected numerous jobs. Hays Travel was founded in 1980 by husband and wife Irene and John Hays.

Jackie Brown co-stars Samuel L Jackson and Pam Grier were among those to pay tribute.

In an interview with Fandor past year, Forster recalled that when presented with the script for "Jackie Brown", he told Tarantino, "I'm sure they're not going to let you hire me". He'd lose the supporting actor Oscar that year to Robin Williams for "Good Will Hunting".

On TV, Forster was a star of the Twin Peaks reboot in 2017 and a recurring guest on sitcom Last Man Standing, playing the father of Tim Allen's character.

"You learn to take whatever jobs there are and make the best you can out of whatever you've got".

Forster is survived by his four children, four grandchildren, and long-time partner, Denise Grayson.
