Forrest Winant (1888–1928) was an American stage and silent screen actor. He usually played amiable juveniles but his work became more cagey and challenging as he aged. He attended the Stevens Institute at Hoboken, New Jersey and participated in some amateur plays before making his professional debut in 1907. He appeared in The Country Boy(1910) with Willette Kershaw, The Family Cupboard(1913) with Irene Fenwick and more famously Kick In(1914) with Jane Grey and John Barrymore. The latter play feature a fight scene on stage between Winant and Barrymore.
Winant died at the beginning of 1928 and was buried Greenwood Cemetery Brooklyn New York.
