THE DESCENDANTS

Academy Award nominee and ¨DGrindhouse Giant¡¬ (according to the NY Times) ROBERT FORSTER (Scott Thorson) is known for his solid work in films from the top to the bottom of the business. Robert¡®s Oscar-nominated role as Max Cherry in Quentin Tarantino¡®s JACKIE BROWN marked the beginning of what he calls the ‗third act¡® of his career--now spanning over five decades.

Next up he will star in JJ Abrams¡® show ALCATRAZ for the Fox Network, due to premiere in January of 2012.

Forster has appeared in over 100 films. The older ones, starting in 1966, include REFLECTIONS IN A GOLDEN EYE, MEDIUM COOL, THE STALKING MOON, ALLIGATOR, VIGILANTE (the Blu-Ray release of which earned him the moniker ¨DGrindhouse Giant), THE BLACK HOLE and STUNTS. He also appeared in the television series ¨DBanyon.

For 13 years he played villains¡ªstarting with DELTA FORCE (1985) and ending with one of his all-time favorites, AMERICAN PERFEKT (1997).

Since JACKIE BROWN (1997), his film include MIDDLE MEN; GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST; THICK AS THIEVES; LIKE MIKE; ME, MYSELF & IRENE; FIREWALL; LAKEBOAT and DIAMOND MEN. He has also appeared the television series ¨DHeroes, ¨DHuff, ¨DKaren Sisco, and ¨DFastlane.

In addition to his work in film, television, and theater, Robert records audio books, including the best seller Hit Man and Elmore Leonard¡®s Mr. Paradise, and delivers his speaking program, Interacting, to a variety of groups¡ªfrom acting classes to graduating classes; baggage handlers to CEOs; and once (he¡®s pleased to report) to a group of white-collar criminals in a detention facility. He developed this program during the self-termed ¨Dsliding second act¡¬ of his career. Interacting is like a stand-up act with a ¨Dmenu of positive stories instead of jokes¡­ and a few jokes too. The stories are the lessons of his life and outline several guiding principles¡ªrespect, responsibility, parenting (even without children), excellence, and raising any job to the level of an art form.
