Fredric Forrest

Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

He made a convincingly cynical Dashiell Hammett in Hammett (1982), an ambitious if only partially realized noir produced by Forrest's principal benefactor, Francis Ford Coppola. In fact, many of this sleepy-eyed actor's best roles have been assigned him by Coppola, in the likes of The Conversation (1974), Apocalypse Now (1979), One from the Heart (1982), and Tucker: The Man and His Dream (1988). One exception, of course, is The Rose (1979) the non-Coppola rock-star nightmare for which he was Oscarnominated as Best Supporting Actor. From a key supporting role in When the Legends Die (1972), his first important movie, right up to The Two Jakes (1990) and Falling Down (1993), Forrest has bounced back and forth between star turns and meaty character parts. That he has achieved significant success in both offers ample testimony to his ability. Some of his best roles have been in ambitious made-for-TV productions, including "Lonesome Dove" (1989, offering a chilling performance as an evil-spirited Indian) and Citizen Cohn (1992, in which he again played Dashiell Hammett).
