Variety reported the Twin Peaks, Jackie Brown and The Descendants star died Friday in Los Angeles after a battle with brain cancer.

"He was brave, he was funny, he was beautiful. And now he's free," Forster's daughter, Kate, said in a statement to NBC News. "He passed peacefully, surrounded by love. We will miss him."

The Rochester, N.Y., native appeared in about 100 screen projects, including the Olympus Has Fallen franchise; films What They Had, Mulholland Drive, American Perfekt and Medium Cool; and TV shows Alcatraz, Huff, The Grid and Karen Sisco.

Forster also played Bud Baxter -- father of Tim Allen's Mike -- on the sitcom, Last Man Standing.
