Frederick's Performance
16 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

I remember seeing this show on TV, under a Hallmark TV production. (I think). What a wonderful performance. I had the pleasure of running into Mr. Forrest in a Santa Monica, Calif. restaurant in the late 1990's. He was very gracious and thrilled that a fan approached him. He plays interesting characters, and I always look at the list of actors, and try to view all his performances. I particularly like his performance in Apocalypse Now, as Chef. They scene with Chef in the jungle is both scary and funny. His character in the movie is that of a straight forward soldier, who is as scarred as anyone, but his captive moments provide a great depth of acting. The crew of the patrol boat seems to coalesce in a series of battles that meld them together. The also enjoy some of boat ride, with various partying and activities. Keep up the great work, Frederick!
