Life Story of Frederic Forrest

His parents opposed his aspirations as a thespian as it was a precarious existence, but he moved on to New York and studied with renowned acting teacher Sanford Meisner. He eventually became an observer at the Actors Studio, where he was tutored by Lee Strasberg. During this time, he supported himself as a page at the NBC Studios in Rockefeller Plaza.

Frederic Forrest, Macon McCalman, and Barry Tubb in Mein wunderbarer Cadillac (1989)

Although he had a relatively small role in The Conversation (1974), it is an extremely important one: He and Cindy Williams are the two people having that titular conversation (recorded by Gene Hackman: so Forrest's and Williams's voices are heard throughout the film).

Frederic Forrest in The Gravy Train (1974)

Appeared alongside Harry Dean Stanton in two movies that weren't initially well-received but have since acquired a cult following: The Missouri Breaks (1976), and One from the Heart (1981). They played good buddies in both.
