Robert Forster is an American actor best known for his Oscar-nominated role as bail bondsman Max Cherry in the 1997 Quentin Tarantino film Jackie Brown.

He also starred as Ray Archer in the short-lived science fiction television series Alcatraz, in 2012.

Starting in 1966, Forster has appeared in over 100 films including Reflections in a Golden Eye, Medium Cool, The Stalking Moon, Alligator, Vigilante, The Black Hole, Stunts, Delta Force and one of his all-time favorites, American Perfekt.

Since Jackie Brown in 1997, his films include The Descendants, Middle Men, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Thick as Thieves, Like Mike, Me, Myself & Irene, Firewall, Lakeboat and Diamond Men.

His recent television credits include Heroes, Huff, Karen Sisco and Fastlane.

In addition to his work in film, television and theatre, Forster records audio books, including the bestseller Hit Man and Elmore Leonard's Mr. Paradise.

He also has developed his own speaking program, Interacting, which he has presented to a variety of groups, ranging from actors to graduating classes to baggage handlers to CEOs, and once to a group of white-collar criminals in a detention facility.

The Interacting program consists of a menu of positive stories (and a few jokes) about the lessons of his life that outline several guiding principles – respect, responsibility, parenting (even without children), excellence and raising any job to the level of an art form.

From Rochester, New York, Forster currently lives in Los Angeles.
