Apple’s Amazing Stories TV series will contain the last acting performance by Oscar-nominated actor Robert Forster.
New details on the new series produced by Steven Spielberg were revealed this week including the plotline of the episode starring Forster which involves him getting superhero powers.
Forster passed on October 11, the same day his last film El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie came out. If you’re a Breaking Bad or Robert Forster fan I’d highly recommend checking that one out as Forster has one of the best roles in the movie. Forster was involved in TV and film since the 60s. Some of his credits include roles in Jackie Brown, Psycho, Olympus Has Fallen, Twin Peaks and dozens of other movies and TV shows.
Forster will appear in the Amazing Stories episode titled Dynoman and The Volt. The episode will be dedicated to his memory with a card during the credits. Kyle Bornheimer and Erica Frene also star in the episode directed by Susanna Fogel.
“Dynoman and The Volt is about an awkward tween boy and his grandpa (Forster) who wrestle with feeling powerless,” reports Deadline. “When a superhero ring Grandpa ordered out of the back of a comic book arrives 50 years late, they discover it has the power to turn them into actual superheroes.”
Amazing Stories is expected to debut on Apple TV+ sometime next year. The service launches in one week on November 1. Only a handful of Apple originals will be available at launch including See, The Morning Show, For All Mankind and Dickinson.
