Frederic Forrest

Highest Rated: 100% Path to War (2002)

Lowest Rated: 0% Implicated (1998)

Birthday: Dec 23, 1936

Birthplace: Waxahachie, Texas, USA

This slim, squinty-eyed actor has had only spotty luck in films after a promising start, but more success in TV movies and mini-series. The Waxahachie, TX native attended three colleges and served six years in the Army before moving to New York to study acting. After doing time in stock and at Lee Strasberg's Actors Studio, Forrest appeared onstage in "Futz," "Viet Rock," and "Silhouettes."
