Today, I’m taking a break from sharing horror movie scenes that I can pay tribute to the great actor, Robert Forster.
Forster passed away on Friday, shortly after his final film — El Camino — dropped on Netflix. Forster had a small but pivotal role in the film, reprising the Breaking Bad character of Ed. Ed may look like a vacuum cleaner repairman but he’s actually the guy you want to see if you need to start a new life far away from New Mexico.
Admittedly, Forster doesn’t say a lot in the scene below. Aaron Paul’s the one who does most of the talking but then again, Forster wasn’t an actor who needed a lot of lines to make an impression. Forster excelled at playing down-to-Earth men who may not have said much but who still meant every word that they said. Forster does so much with just his eyes and his taciturn expression here. And when he does speak, the lines are killer.
Obviously, this scene is going to count as a spoiler if you haven’t seen El Camino yet.
Robert Forster, R.I.P. He was one of the greats.
